Default Issue with straight talk voicemail?

so i just switched my mytouch 4g over to straight talk i bought the sim online and activated it through thier customer care and the phone works and the data and everything works and so does the 4g. but everytime i call voicemail it says do you have a voicemail press star then asks for my number and after i type it in it says sorry this is not an active voicemail number or something to that effect. so when someone tries to call me and i ignore it they just get a busy signal on their end no voicemail or anything. any one have any ideas on how to get this to work.

Well google voice is a really good voice mail substitute. I'm not sure how to actually fix the number issue

Try calling your own number from your phone. That always worked for me.

Did you set up voicemail with your carrier?

I'd give them a call. Is your phone unlocked (not just rooted)? I'd think I'd it wasn't, you'd have more problems than just voicemail. But that could be it.
