I would suggest the following... It is the easiest solution going.

simply go to your local at&t store and tell them that you need a blank simcard that you can put into your iphone and activate at home.

once you do that you will want to take the simcard out of the iphone and put in the new sim.

Plug the iphone into your computer after youve installed the new sim.

You will then be guided through the itunes activation process.

once completed all features will be working and the voicemail will work on at&t's Visual voicemail settings.


Good Luck... This Will Work... All the best

To setup your voice mail just call your voice mail by holding down one.
And then after you set it up you can restart your iPhone and it will work.
If not call Apple at 1-800-MY-APPLE or at&t at 611
Thank You. Nick

Set up voice mail


What model phone do you have and which carrier? For example, with a Verizon iphone 5 these are the steps:
  1. From the Home screen, tap Phone .
    The Home screen is accessed by pressing the home button (located at the bottom of the device).
  2. Tap Voicemail
    You could be directed to the automated Voice Mail system at this time. If so, follow the voice prompts to set up your Voice Mail and greeting instead of completing the steps below.
  3. Tap Set Up Now.
    If the 'Set Up Now' pop-up does not appear, your voice mail has already been set up. Simply tap Greeting in the upper-left of the voice mail screen and begin at step 6.
  4. Enter a password then tap Done.
    The password must be between 4-6 digits in length.
  5. Re-enter the password then tap Done.
  6. Tap Custom to record a greeting.
    To use a Verizon default greeting, tap (check) Default.
  7. Tap Record to begin.
  8. When finished, tap Stop.
  9. Tap Save.

What my voicemail 4 digit passcodefor 2402620085


Your voicemail password is a 4 digit number that you enter when you want to listen to your voicemail messages from any other phone other than your mobile phone - this is called remote access. This voicemail password gives you the protection to know that only you can listen to your voicemails.
It is vital that your password is set to a random 4 digit password. To change your password, all you need to do is:
  1. Dial 173 from your mobile
  2. You will then be asked to pick a 4 digit number, and then press the # button
  3. If you are happy press press 2
Your password is all set up and you will be prompted to enter it whenever you want to listen to your voicemails through remote access.You will only need to use this password when accessing your voicemails from another phone. You will not need to use this password when accessing your voicemail from your own mobile phone - you simply dial 171 as normal
You can reset your voicemail pass code by dialing 611 or 1 800 331 0500
From the main menu, press3 (To get help with voicemail)
Press 2 to reset your voicemail pass word
Enter Billing Zip code
Customer will receive a text message to their wireless phone with their new voicemail password.
OR
You can log into your "My Account" from the www.cingular.com
From the My Phone page, click Reset Voice Mail Password.
Choose a wireless number from the dropdown menu and select Submit.
A text message is sent to the wireless phone with the new password.

I forgot my iphone voicemail password, how can i just erase so i can make a new one.


  1. Call 611 or 800-331-0500.
  2. Press 1 to use existing number, or enter the wireless number starting with area code.
  3. Tap the 3 key to "get help with voicemail." (5 for enterprise customers)
  4. Tap the 3 key to reset your VM password.
  5. Enter the Billing Zip code for the account.
  6. A temporary password will be sent via SMS
  7. Access voicemail with this temporary password.
After performing the above steps, my voicemail was accessible once again, and I didn't appear to have lost any prior voice mail messages. AT&T's support page has several other options available as well, but I found the above to be the quickest and easiest to execute directly from my iPhone.

Voicemail does not work


Had the same problemwith my iPhone 3G this is how I fixed it -

1) From the iPhone 3G, I called my own iPhone 3G number.
2) Went through the setup. After finishing the ssetup Hang off the iPhone 3G.
3) Then the voicemail button on the iPhone 3G worked - first time, there was a **** pause, it asked me to enter my voicemail password that I had set in step 2, and that's it.

Good luck.
