    Where is the calling number of a voicemail displayed?

    Moto G6 unlocked, Android 8, Airvoice Wireless - an AT&T MVNO. New to smart phones.

    I don't see any way to view, or call, the phone number of the person who left a voicemail. If my phone was ON when the VM was left, I can get the information from the Missed Calls list, but if my phone was OFF, there's no Missed Call entry, and I don't see any way to find the calling number. The only number associated with the voicemail is the local AT&T voicemail retrieval number, which is the same for every voicemail. What am I missing here?

    Ok, I told you I was new to smart phones.

    Is there an app specifically for voicemail that would show me the calling number, or is this just an AT&T feature that I can't get around? Is there a Youtube video about this? I couldn't find one, but not sure what to search for.

    Thanks for any help.

    Voicemail system should have an option to tell you the number that left a voice mail when you call in to hear it. Some systems announce it automatically, in others you have to press a specific number to hear it (e.g. press 5 to hear message envelope).

    There are apps for visual voicemail, but you have to check with your carrier if this feature is available.
