On my old Moto X, I got my voicemails directly from the call log. I never called voicemail, because they were already on the phone. I just got a new Samsung Galaxy S7, and they are not there. I have to call voicemail, and the call log doesn’t even reliably tell me there’s a message (all the icons are the same, message or not). Did the voicemail in the call log feature go away? (actually, a lot of good features of my old moto x went away…I may have to find a used one).
I have to dial 1 on my S7 too. I do see the voicemail icon under the first name in the recents list but can’t find a way to play it. When I dial 1 I’m asked for my PIN. I find myself entering the PIN 3 or 4 times before the VM system finally accepts. it.
Thanks @c1tobor! That works for me.
- Tap the Phone icon.
- If not selected, tap Recents at the upper left.
- Tap any item here which has a under the phone number.
- Tap the to see the message details.
- Tap the on the right end of the voicemail entry.
- Tap to hear the message.
- To delete the message just heard, tap on the date/time-stamp of the message, then tap Delete at the upper right, now tap the voicemail item to select it, and tap Delete at the upper right again.
Thanks guys. I e-mailed that to myself, and will hopefully remember to use it! It’s a pain checking my voicemail by pressing 1, and having to enter the password over and over until it accepts it, as @billg mentioned.
Do I sense sarcasm?.
On my MXP I tap , , tab(s), and act accordingly.

All kidding aside @greyh.cc67xy , Samsung’s Interface will be different than Moto’s interface.
Samsung’s are very popular, but, so are Moto’s. It’s really a matter of preference.
Both have some very cool features.
Well, it’s 6 button presses compared to 2. I’m finding a LOT of things like that. I think I forgot that when I got the Moto X2, it was priced midrange, but it rivaled the top IPhone and Galaxy of the time. But now the X4 (I hear) really is a midrange phone. I only went for the S7 because it’s $100 cheaper than the X4, and slightly smaller and lighter. But it’s not even faster than my old, broken X2.
I really miss my active notification screen, and worst of all, my Moto X2 would automatically connect to my work wifi, password and all (and it’s a long, complicated password, and I’d have to do it a few times a day). Is that not available with the new android? All that, and I’ll be paying about $10 more per month.
