EE’s Lumia 640 was one of the very first Lumias to support integrated Wifi calling, now it looks like it will also carry the distinction of being one of the first EE branded Lumias which supports visual voicemail on Windows 10 Mobile.
After updating to Windows 10 Mobile on an EE Lumia 640, a new setting appears in the phone sub-menu under the voicemail section with a toggle for visual voicemail. This option is limited by firmware unfortunately, it is only available to EE branded Lumias running Windows 10 Mobile and does not show itself on an unlocked Lumia 640 XL or 950 XL on Windows 10 Mobile.
EE typically limits its visual voicemail feature to iPhone users who have Pay Monthly plans, which is why it is surprising to see this feature show up unannounced on a Lumia 640. We have not been able to confirm if the feature works yet due to having incompatible sim plans, but it should simply be a matter of toggling the option on for users with the appropriate plans.
To use visual voicemail on any Lumia, do the following:
- Open the Phone app
- Tap the … menu and open settings.
- Open “change more settings for phone”
- The options for visual voicemail should be at the very top if your device firmware and sim support it.
