Why do I no longer get the voicemail symbol when i miss a call?

The little recorded message symbol that I used to get when someone leaves me a voice mail is no longer showing up. I can still retrieve messages, but I have no idea if someone left me a message unless I go into my voicemail and check. Does anyone know how to turn this back on?

    No, the voicemail is connected to the sim through the carrier, and stored on the carrier's servers. The phone acts as a bridge between you and the carrier.

    I would advise contacting your carrier and asking them directly. You may or may not get a logical answer from them, but if the problem continues (after contacting your carrier first), one thing that may or may not cure it, is replacing the sim card with a new one. I have seen where that has cured similar issues in the past.

    Might be an issue with your carrier not sending the proper notification.

    You would think that since my phone recorded a message, that it would know I got one and to put up the symbol. Or do these messages not get recorded on the phone?

    If your carrier supports visual voicemail and you have it enabled and the app installed on the phone, then there is a possibility that it automatically downloaded the visual voice mail to the phone.
