Question: iphone 5 change/add voicemail number?

Hi,

I bought an unlocked iPhone 5 from Apple and would like to add my voicemail number. I tried all the codes that worked fine with my iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s (*5005*86*xxx# etc.). The iphone screen does indeed flash like it did before, but the voicemail button won´t work afterwards.

Anyone having an iphone 5 and was able to get the voicemail button working?

iPhone 5, voicemail number

it's a shame for apple. since month they are not able to provide a solution how to program this stupid key.


when you call apple they claim that the mobile provider is responsable for this. this is a big shame. on every other device you are able to set the voicemail number to a special key. but not so on the iphone.


on the iphone you need a stupid carrier bundle signed by the mobile provider.

Hi All,


I have just been in contact with Orange regarding this they advised to dial:

*5005*86*123#


This will set the voicemail number to 123 (orange) so hopefully (i've not tested) you can just put your voicemail number inplace of 123!


Hope this helps

Having the same issue in Australia after switching to Kogan Mobile.

The **5005... Code doesn't work on the iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.

Kogan will not help (no carrier settings to push), and Apple phone support won't either! Very frustrating, indeed.

Hi I just used this on my iphone5s and it works. Don't forget its **at the beginning not *

you need to dial **5005*86*XXX01# WHERE XXX IS YOUR VOICEMAIL NUMER

Don't forget you may have to do it everytime you update your iphones operating system
