    Default 1.1.4 unlocked but with Supported carrier - is visual voicemail possible?

    Hi Guys.

    I am using a new 16gb 1.1.4 unlocked with iPlus2.0.
    I have no problems whatsoever, its working great, however I was wondering about visual voicemail...

    I am with o2 in Ireland which is the official carrier for the iPhone, is it possible for me to get my voicemail button to work like a proper contract phone, ie giving me access to the visual voicemail function?

    Its not the end of the world that I dont have it but it would be pretty cool if I did

    Has anyone got it working in Ireland with o2?

    Thanks

    Sean

    From my understanding with AT&T in the US, your provider has to activate that, so there is no workaround that you could use, unless you know someone inside O2 that could activate that without sucking you into a new contract.

    Unlocking the phone should not affect visual voice mail provided you are using an iPhone specific plan on an Apple approved carrier.

    Your problem is that Visual Voice Mail is not offered in Ireland by 02. I recall reading it in the fine print when 02 announced the iPhone in Ireland. A slap in the face to all the fan boys at MacRumors.com that believe only an Apple approved carrier can deliver the ultimate iPhone experience.

    If you are using an iPhone specific plan, I would recommend calling 02 and inquiring when they will support visual voice mail in Ireland. That should be your first step.

    Regardless of their answer you can also reprogram the button to point to your normal voicemail box. I will see if I can find the instructions and then edit this post with them

    EDIT

    LINK - That thread explains how to reprogram the voicemail button to function with your own voicemail box.

    O2 Ireland MCC/MNC 272 02

    O2 UK MCC/MNC 234 02
    O2 UK MCC/MNC 234 11

    does not match, O2 Ireland is not official supported (yet?). Voicemail will only work with iphone contract, even if you are using official carrier and SIM without iphone option (but you can upgrade through itunes if you are using official SIM).

    thanks for the help.
    however the voicemail button 'already' goes to my mailbox. it didnt do that when I first got my iPhone, it did nothing. but now it routes directly to my mailbox number. i think since it was launched in ireland this works as standard now. although could just be a coincidence
