    You say something about the reception,
    When I don't have service my iPhone rings once and goes to voicemail.

    Calls are sent to voice mail based on a "No answer call forward". If the call is not answered within XX seconds, it forwards to voice mail.

    The the valid delay values are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 seconds.
    There is a way to change this by using GSM codes, or she can call customer service and ask them to reset or change this.

    Tell her do this. From the phone app:
    Step 1:
    Dial: *#61#
    You will see results that say "Settings Interrogation Succeeded. Voice Call Forwarding When Unanswered Forwards to +12537094019 Enabled"
    Write down that phone number (after the +) This is the voice mail box number

    Step 2:
    Dial: *61*[voicemail phone number]**[seconds]#
    Eg: *61*2537094019**20#
    (the 20 in the example above is the seconds before transfering to VM, must be in increments of 5, and no more than 30)
    I find that 20 seconds is just about right (about 4 rings) or you may want 25 seconds.

    The default should be 15 seconds, but who knows, maybe it got screwed up somehow?
    It's worth a shot.

    To recap:
    *#61# retrieves the status of call forwarding
    *61*[phonenumber]**[sec]# sets the call forward no answer setting.

    For more information on GSM codes
    Google: GSM codes call forward
    http://www.google.com/search?q=GSM+codes+call+forward
    Not all GSM codes work on AT&T, and use them with care. But the above I described are safe to use. Just make sure to write down her voice mail box number because it's not the same for everyone and you don't want to lose it.

    All else fails, call CS and ask them to re-set the call forward delay.
    I should note that some other phones actually let you set this in settings menus rather than have to fiddle with GSM codes, but the iPhone does not.

    I am also having the same issue...but for me, voicemail notifications don't come through for an hour or more...extremely annoying. This seems to be only on the 3g network, and only at my house, so AT&T has a trouble ticket out on it, but they haven't found anything yet.

    Do these codes apply for 3g? I sure would like to get to the bottom of this.

    Makes me miss Verizon since I never had this happen for the five years I was with them. But the iPhone lured me away, for better or for worse...
