Not getting voicemail text alerts

Post by Stelcom66 » Fri Oct 02, 2020 7:52 am

For about a week I have not been receiving text messages for new voicemails. I get texts fine from other sources. The carrier is Verizon. No settings have been changed.

I do get email alerts. I deleted/re-added the entry for my cellphone, still didn't get a text.

I created a filter in Gmail to forward email messages from Ooma to my cellphone # @vtext.com. After I did that the texts from Ooma happened to start working. The slight advantage to that is I know when I heard 2 simultaneous text message tones on my cellphone it was an Ooma voicemail message. Deleted the Gmail setting since it seems to be working for now.
