Question about Apple iPhone 3G

2 Answers

Using Office voice mail system

In order to connect to our office voice mail, you must dial ** (double asteriks) followed by mailbox number and password followed by #. After using this for nearly 12 years with many different phones, I can't get my new 3G to connect to voice mail at my business.

    I tried using the mute button before the code, but didn't appear to help enter our voice mail system.

  • cmoxley Aug 23, 2008

    I'm sorry, not sure when I'm suppose to enter the *5005*86*. Should I dial the regular 10 digit number, then this code, then the normal double asteriks,then the voice mailbox number and passcode?

It seems this a bug with Apple iPhone 3G version and is already reported to Apple R&D. For workaround you need to perform the steps mentioned by a user having similar problem:

_________________________________________________
I've had the same problem with being unable to access my Nortel voicemail system using the ** entry. After reading all of your posts I came up with a solution that works for me every time. I thought I should share this with all of you. First, you need to install a free application on your iPhone 3G that both records and plays back recordings. I used the YouNote free version but I'm sure many will work because the principle is the same. Then go to this website http://www.dialabc.com/sound/generate/ and generate a sound of "**". I used the default settings of the program. Then, save the file in your computer, play it on your computer, and record the sound on your iPhone by using your recording application (eg YouNote). Then, place the call to you voicemail number and while its dialing exit the phone call screen, open the Record/Play App (YouNote), and at the appropriate time, play the recording. Then, just exit the App, open the phone icon and enter your password...you are in. This has worked for me every time. This is a little bit of a hassle but it's easier than the other suggestions I've seen. This will hold all of us over until Apple fixes this problem

  1. You need to then add the following code: *5005*86*xxx#. Here xxx would be your voicemail number.
  2. After entering the code you tap call.
  3. This results in the code being set.
  4. Thats all, tap now on the voicemail button and it should automatically call your usual voicemail service.
Hope that helps.......

A U.S. Cellular®, they understand that your Voice Mail is about more than just sending and retrieving messages.

en tso person at 102 dials 107 or 115, he gets a "welcome to the Panasonic voice processing system" message or similar. WIth a (n optional) password, he can enter the mailbox and make changes to the greetings and name. (possibly option 4 or 5) 1,2,3. That changes the name.

Sorry for the 1/3 answer, but you only answered 1 of 3 questions. The sytem is not a 7736, but a TA/TAW or TDA phone SYSTEM and a TVA or TVS or embedded Voice Mail.

I gave an answer based on TA-824 and TVA-50. When you figure out what that black and blue box is (TVA-50) see if you can find a manual with how it was installed. Your sytem own'er's mailbox (999) lets you control the dial by name directory and reset passwords.

How do i get the voice mail off my phone


7730 phones tend to be installed on TA series phone systems, which have TVA or TVS voice mail systems on it. The VM comes from the FWD button being set to forward calls to ext 107 or 115. Is that the voice mail you want to remove? That's cancelled by dialing 7100 on the intercom.

Your voice mail could also be coming from the central office. That's where you dial a phone number or press the MESSAGE and blinking CO button to retrieve it. That's removed by the telco.

If your phrase "get the voice mail off my phone" actually means retrieve your mesages, that should be able to be done by selecting the intercom and pressing the MESSAGES button. You may need a password or to follow the tutorial if you've never set up the mailbox. Panasonic sysgtems still take messages on new mailboxes but you have to set it up before you can get them :-)

A word of caution, the 7730 phones work on any of 18 or so Panasonic systems. It was made during the TA-624/824 TAW848 era for analog systems, but most Pana phones are backward and forward compatible.
The solution provided here is for the TA 624/824 systems.

Hope this helps.

Can't find how to set my voicemail message on Panasonic KX-T7431


Thanks for all the helpful information! First of all, I think you have a TVS/TVM voice mail system. That's good, but what does the lady say when you dial 265 or 165 from either your phone or a phone that works?

If you have voice mail set up, the prompt would be to "Enter your password then #" or "You have X new messages" if you don't have your password set. If you don't get ANY of those on your phone, but do on someone else's, you don't have a mailbox.

Mailboxes are added from the System Owner's mailbox (999) by
option 6 then 1. Once you have a mailbox, you do use option 5 and 3 or 2 or 1 for Name, Password, and Greeting.

Since there is little difference between the models of voice mail, I have attached a TVS-50 manual. The instructions for adding a mailbox start on page 280 (or use the System Manager's Guide tab on the left).

With any luck, you'll get voicemail too :-)

VOICE MAILBOX NOT ACTIVE


CF to voice mail may be as simple as pressing the FWD/DND button, or reading the manual and dialing the proper 720x code.

It may require some programming via the voice mail system.
Start by dialing 165, the usual VM access code, from your phone and listen to the prompt. If it says you have x messages or enter your password, then the mailbox is active.
