    Okay, so I recently shut off my Edge plan, because it just wasn't worth it to me, being around wifi networks most of the time. Because of this, visual voicemail has been shut off, and I must use the old school voice mail. This would be fine, except it doesn't work right. When I choose the voicemail tab, a message comes up telling me it's not available, so I have to go to the keypad and hold down 1. Also, it never tells me how many voicemail messages I have, it just shows a red dot over the voicemail tab. Is there a way to fix this, it worked fine before I activated my iPhone officially (when I first got the iPhone, I hacktivated it to work with my old Cingular sim card).

    I've tried restoring, resetting, and I've even called AT&T with no luck at all.

    here do this

    1. You need to first get your carrier's voicemail number.
    2. Click on your iPhone's phone button.
    3. Then click on the Keypad tab.
    4. You need to then add the following code: *5005*86*xxx#. Here xxx would be your voicemail number.
    5. After entering the code you tap call.
    6. This results in the code being set.
    7. Thats all, tap now on the voicemail button and it should automatically call your usual voicemail service.


    let me know if it works

    AT&T Voicemail Number

    15037030986 - This leads me to think that each area code would have a local number?? Clearly I'm from Oregon. I hope this is sort of helpful?

    I found my local voicemail number and entered the code and everything, but it still says "Voicemail not found"
