IPhone voicemail doesn't work?

I bought an Iphone last December, and my voicemail still doesn't work. Our local AT&T doesn't sell the iphone so they really have no idea how to fix the problem.

The Problem
I can dial and hold "1" and voicemail calls.
I go through prompts and record greeting.
Everything seems like its going to work.

However everytime someone calls, he/she cannot leave a message.

They get a message that says...........................
........"We need more information to direct your call to the approatie voice mailbox....to leave a message please leave the ten digit phone of the person you are trying to call.....if you have a mailbox on this system, please press #"

Call 611 from the phone you can press I think option 1 then option 3 you should be able to reset your voicemail pwd. however before you do that you should call your phone from another phone not just press 1 send. by calling your phone it will let you know if you have a voicemail box actually setup porperly.

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.
