How to get voicemails without Mobile Data on?

I only get voicemail notifications if I turn on Mobile Data then hit Refresh in the visual voicemail app. Even if Wifi is on but Mobile Data is off, I won't get any notifications.

I keep Mobile Data off a lot to stay under a data allowance, for lower bills.

Is there a way to get voicemail notifications without Mobile Data on?

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy 9-Plus.

    Mobile data does need to be active in order to receive notifications or check voicemail messages, the app does not receive these through wifi.

    Thanks Anthony. I wish there was a way to be notified without mobile data or wifi on, like with old dial-in voicemail notifiers. My old flip phone (LG on Verizon) would notify me of voicemails with both off as it was not a smartphone. I guess I'll have to find a way to forward this request to Spectrum Mobile's Product Management group. Thanks again.
