Thanks for helping.

    I am having the same voicemail problem on my 3G.  I tried to call my number but it just gives the message of "the voicemail has not been set up" and then it hangs up.  What do I do?

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.

*5005*86*-------#
Then follow instructions. The seven blanks are for your phone number. NO AREA CODE. 
After everything else had failed, this worked! Weird!! I had even gone through the voice prompts by calling my own phone number, and it said my voicemail was now setup!
But when I used this method, the voicemail button called my phone number. I had to hit * in the middle of the message which said my voicemail was not setup, and then I just followed instructions.
After I hung up, it took about 2 minutes, and then my iPhone said, "Voicemail password is incorrect" and prompted me to re-enter it. After I did so (entering the password that I had just used on the message prompt), everything was hunky dory again!

Solution 2 needed a little modification before it worked for me.
Instead of:
*5005*86*-------# where -----  is your mobile number try using your voicemail number instead for the ---.
I am with Vodafone and used 121, it worked perfectly.
