Compare wireless voicemail options

The type of voicemail option available to you depends on which phone and service you have. For example, wireless and AT&T PREPAID (formerly GoPhone®) data plans for compatible smartphones include Visual Voicemail at no additional charge. Basic Voicemail comes with your plan if you have a wireless or AT&T PREPAID phone without a data plan or Wireless Home Phone.

Want to upgrade from Basic Voicemail? Add Enhanced Voicemail for $1.99 per month to get more voicemail message capacity and storage time. Learn how to add options to your plan.

Heads up: Enhanced Voicemail isn’t available for AT&T PREPAID accounts.
