Geeeeez.....   I had the 4s and don't remember any issues with voice mail notifications.

Can someone tell me where it is?

I get a voice mail and I don't hear any sound, no icon in the notification panel or anything.     Thought I was pretty phone savvy.    LOL

The posters in this forum are having the OPPOSITE problem ... Getting rid of voice mail notifications.

A lot of the problems seem to be carrier based.

I found a few apps mentioned here

It seems that a LED flashing every 5 seconds is the main notification method (except for the display).

Nothing in the suggestions have worked that I have tried.     Some are a ONE TIME notification.    

One I thought might work was NoLED and that only displays once.   It isn't recurring for those times when you don't get to your voicemail

And the one suggestion for every 5 minute notification ............    I don't want the phone yelling at me.    LOL

Galaxy s4 was awesome.   Worked nicely with a little icon that stayed in the notification bar UNTIL you actually listened to the voicemail.

Inadequacies in the operation of the S5 will hopefully prompt some app developer
to come up with a solution.

Keep an eye out for new apps and maybe join an active Android forum.
