    My dad just got his first iPhone 2 days ago. In order to check his office voicemail from somewhere other than his office, he must:

    1. Call a certain number.
    2. Wait to hear a voice.
    3. Press "**"
    4. Wait for a voice.
    5. Press "(his extension)(4 digit code)##"
    6. Listen to voicemail.

    However, since using the iPhone, the voice doesn't sound after pressing "**". If he uses any other phone, it works. Any help? He sees this as a big problem.

    This is a common problem with certain networks. The "**" (double star) is sometimes the code used to disconnect. I would suggest when making the call, give a slight pause between the two stars and see if that helps. Beyond that, see if there is an alternative, or complain the people that run the voice mail.
