I just want the app to work. That includes accessing voicemail messages. They never play, but the little wheel spins like it's trying to play. And spins and spins and spins. I close the app. Try again. More spinning. I restart the phone. Try again. More spinning. I uninstall and reinstall. Spinning. I have to go to my desktop and access voicemail through it instead. This is worthless. I've reported this, it's been going on for more than a year now. FIX IT, GENIUSES!

I use the messaging feature to stay in contact with my aging mother. While I do receive the initial notification for her messages, no number appears above the app icon to let me know I have unread messages. In other words, if I don't see the initial notification, I don't realize there is a new message. I've checked, and all notifications are enabled in the app's settings.

Right now, I'm outside US and trying to set up a monthly plan to make calls. First off, the app constantly disconnects from the network. I'm on a fast and stable connection, literally never had an issue. Second, I'm trying to set up a monthly plan to make calls back home. Can't, they decline my payments even though everything is right. This app has been nothing but frustrating and a waste of my time.
