Contact your service provider and let them know that you want the voicemail feature activated. I have tried via web on my laptop and also using the telus ap for my iPhone. Good news: You don't need to call from your cell phone except once. Last thing, now I recall, this used to work just fine on my earlier phones so why has this service been discontinued or 'broken' or whatever? What did the iPhone do that causes the message, instead of dialling my own number for voicemail? I hope this will help anyone how encounter this issue. Also the voicemail uses access numbers that can be different from one phone to another. I believe it is option 4 or 8 or similarly far down the list. May I know who is your service provider? Then once you get the notification of a new message, call the voice mail from it and delete that message.
I eventually solved the problem by upgrading to a new phone. After listening to the messages the VoiceMail waiting icon will disappear from your cellphone display no matter what number you called from. I have gone to my voicemail, selected 4, personal options, then it said hit 8 to require a password for voicemail. Let me know if you find a solution. To activate voicemail, go to settings, call settings then voicemail should appear after activation. I'd like to use that phone again some day in the future.
Problem is, this process fails, and you have to enter the voicemail system in the fashion you describe. So I suggest that you need to do it now. Sounds like you may have a a plan change and lost your visual voicemail! I just hit the voicemail button and it connects and there aren't really any settings on the phone itself. You will see the option to set up a voicemail unless it has been activated. I have tried to log on and find 'personal options,. Then you can pick and choose what messages to listen to and when.
Thanks for some enlightening here. When you delete a voice mail but your phone still says that you have a message waiting it can be anoying. If he sweeps left to right on the lock screen message, he is taken to the password screen, and, having entered his passcode, should be taken immediately to voicemail. By login to your voicemail, I mean on your phone. Reporting for a lost phone at requesting for a suspension to your account isnt that difficult. Keep in mind, though, that jail breaking is only for technically savvy users and can cause major problems for your phone and not advisable.
I hope that clarified few things. I believe is referring to the notification of the voice message on the iPhone lock screen. Try to call you cell phone from another number, then leave a message on your voice mail. Tried to retrieve message, same fail message as before. You need to swipe the notification itself, not the swipe to unlock. Nothing I tried workd and support was of no help at all.
Since I am a poor Pay-as-you-go client, I didn't want to return the call and pay more money. You dont have to worry about that, its all about the basic information that you filled up on their applicaiton form. The voicemail settings in your phone only work if you have visual voicemail set up. The voicemail feature of a particular device is a service provider dependent feature. In Personal Options choose the option to bypass password. So I understand this, and thank you for the assistance, when someone calls me, and I don't answer, and it goes to voicemail, later my iPhone pops up a message that says, 'new voicemail'.
It told me that it was set up for password not required. So I selected it anyway, and it then prompted me with choices again, including to turn off password, hit 8. After spending two hours trying to make it go away I finally phoned support 1-866-558-2273. That should delete both notifications and resolve your issue. So I hit it again, turning the password requirement back off.
Then I sweep my finger across that, it asks for my iPhone lock code, I put that in, then I get a message that says, 'call failed'. Needless to say other area codes have different access numbers. Yes the error message, error: process. I unlock the screen normally, then the process fails. That needs to be reinstalled. They may have a solution for this since that way we can fix this is through resetting of the device to restore the original program unless your service provider has the file for this specific program. And is impossible for a one to know which access number his-her phone has.
You call back once to set-up your VoiceMail account: Mostly they just ask you for a password four or more numbers and then you need to say your name and optionally provide a greeting message. Voicemail has been set up. . So it is not a general rule that one number will cover them all. That is where I have been trying. I'd recommend calling Telus and have them check that everything is configured correctly just in case the number it is trying to dial to access voicemail is invalid. Dial the voicemail number and follow the instructions from voice recording.
I do not have visual voicemail. But You can, however, restrict the voice dialing aspect of Voice Control when your iPhone is locked, though this only prevents voice dialing when the phone is locked and a pass code is enabled. That should work most of the times. You will need to call in to find it out. I hung up and called myself, left a message from another phone. Thereafter; if you have a Cellphone with Telus as your provider you can enter 1-778-581-4001 from any phone and pick-up your voice messages.
