Fix iPhone 4 Visual Voicemail

My iPhone's Visual Voicemail has broken a few times, and I've had to do a number of things to get it working again. Here are a few that worked for me:

Option 1: Reset your Voicemail Password

  1. Call ATT at 611
  2. Select option 3, voicemail
  3. Select option 3, reset password
  4. Wait for the new password to arrive via text message
  5. Hang up
  6. Click on your voicemail and wait.
  7. Eventually, you'll see some text appear in the middle of the screen. Tap the screen.
