    Well, I might be wrong, but that's what I could find so far.

    There are some networks that do the voice mail setup based on the call forwarding service.

    ATT does it this way. When you configure you phone (and thus your SIM definitions in the network) to forward calls you'll be given several options:

    1) Forward if busy
    2) Forward if using data
    3) Forward if unreachable
    4) Etc

    ATT uses "Forward if unreachable" to forward your calls to you voice mail box. It does that for all phones, not just iPhone.

    This way, I think if you put your SIM in a phone that allows you to configure call forwarding and then Set the "Forward if unreachable" option to your own voice mail number, it might work.

    The problem about that is that not every network uses the scheme, so you may end-up messing around with your voicemail box and even having to pay some fees for the forwarding.

    Well, just a reminder: This is just guessing, but I would give it a try if I were you.

    I have two Orange sims. With one of them, as said before, voicemail button works fine. With the other one, nothing happens. When I put the working sim in the Samsung of my wife, I can see an Orange Box entry in Service numbers (as well as customer care, etc...). It seems to be a number stored on the sim. Unfortunately, I don't have a sim reader to see how it's stored to be recognized by iPhone.

    [EDIT]I've played with my sims on a Treo. Both sims have the voicemail number stored on the sim contact list. But only one has the voicemail that appears as service number on the Samsung. So it seems that on one sim, the voicemail number is stored in a different manner[/EDIT]

    Ok, I put my SIM & the AT&T SIM into a SIM Reader and checked it out.

    The only regular stuff (in all sims) appears to be you IMSI, ICCID and the SMS center number.

    In my local sim, I had 16 entries in the address book all related to the operator services including voicemail number, voicemail enable, voicemail disable, directory services etc etc.

    Howerver, the AT&T sim has NOTHING.

    My voicemail button does nothing on the phone screen, so I am really confused as to how some people are getting that button to dial their voicemail or are, did I dream that?

    Perhaps I need to try and find a SIM that does do something different with the voicemail button and put that in the SIM reader. Perhaps there's a particular entry that the iphone will work with but its dependent on whether you SP has populated your SIM with it or not?


    I would also like to know how the iphone deals with voicemail in general.

    My Service Provider sends an voicemail related SMS after a voicemail is left, but these don't turn up on iphone. Or rather I think they do turn up but perhaps the visual voicemail routines in the phone are identifying them as VM related text messages and is trying to process them accordingly. This of-course would fail as expected, but might explain why the texts don't appear as regular SMS's.

    Ok, this is really strange.

    I have found a UK SIM that as soon as I put it into the phone, I got the red dot up to signify there was a voicemail waiting (Virgin).

    I have read this SIM in a SIM Reader, and it is no different!?!?!??

    Do the Service Providers do these things differently, because I can find no reason why some Service Providers do seem to be compatible with the iphone VM button and others arn't!?!??

    Ironically, Virgin Mobile in the UK actually really uses the Orange network.

    I don't think it's related to the service provider. I have two sims from Orange. One calls voicemail when I hit the button, the other one not. On both sims, voice mail number are available in contact list. But on the sim that works, the voice mail number is recognized as Service Number by a Samsung phone. I've asked a friend to bring me his sim reader. Maybe I can find the difference between these two sims.

    Hmm, really interesting, that suggests we might be able to find a way to fix this for everyone if you have two SIM's on the same operator.

    The problem is widespread but no-one seems to be worrying about it too much!?!?!

    When I consider I don't even get the SMS notification, there's no way to know I have a voicemail, kinda quite significant I think !!

    Anyone had any further luck figuring this out? I'd really like to have this service if possible, and would be willing to contribute a small paypal donation towards the person who solves the problem
