i live in a bad signal area and often cant access voice in normal manner, is there a number to dial?
You would have to contact your cell phone provider to get that info, since it is a carrier feature.
Try pressing and holding '1' until it dials your voicemail. This works for some carriers. If not, dial your number from your iPhone.
It varies by carrier - you would need to contact whichever one you're subscribed to.
I can get it by pressing and holding the '1' key on the dialpad, but that maybe be specific to my location (UK) and my provider (O2), but try it anyway.
many thanks problem solved holding 1 or dialing 901
