    So does following the steps from the wiki (to activate the voicemail button to dial your voicemail number) have any bearing in actually getting the notification SMSs which the provider sends out when a voicemail is received?

    I don't mind dialling my own voicemail number, but I do need to know when to do it...

    The trick to populating your voicemail number is simply just that, to make the voicemail button in the Phone menu actually dial your VM Access number (like a quick short dial).

    This sometimes works for people anyway, it depends on the SIM and Carrier.

    The Voicemail notification is something else that I have tried to get devs to look at, so far without success.

    My theory is that this problem bears a resemblance to SMS issue where SMS's that contain Alfa Characters do not make it though to the iPhone.

    I have searched the net but I have not been successful in finding any information about the standard formatting of Voicemail notifications that the carriers send out.

    Since I activated my VM button, I am getting VM notifications but they are in the form of may airtime balance coming up on the screen, which whilst a bit strange does help :-)

    This is plaguing many users and I can't understand the reluctance for anyone to investigate it!

    People have looked into springboard to figure out futile stuff like the carrier logo's, I can only assume the main people capable of investigating this, perhaps don't have the problem themselves ??

    I myself receive very few voicemails and my carrier balance popping up is more than adequate for the few voicemails I receive but I am still keen to do what I can to help out on this matter because its one of the few remaining iPhone querks that needs ironing out.

    The application that handles the on-screen "Dismiss" type messages is probably a good place to start since this is the application that is confusing a VM alert with a Balance Display in my case. I assume this is SpringBoard but I don't know for sure.

    My phone may be an excellent example for this investigation as finding out why that notification is coming up, instead of a VM Alert would probably clear up all the problems of no notification at all!

    If any dev's read this or anyone capable of dissecting the phone app responsible for this process want me to try anything out, please PM me.

    Thanks for clearing that up. Might as well set up the voicemail button to the right number and see if there's any change in the notifications which currently don't come through

    I'm not very clued in with the AT command set for GSM (things were so much easier in the 80s with modems), but I was doing some investigations in case there was an AT command (or set of AT commands) that might provide the key to receiving sms notifications. Here's a list of commands that I think may be relevant:

    AT+CSSN - Supplementary service notifications
    AT+CNMI - New message indications to 'TE'
    AT+CMGR - Read message
    AT+CMGL - List messages
    AT+CMGF - Message format
    AT+CPMS - Preferred message store
    AT+CNUM - Subscriber number
    AT+CSMS - Select message service
    AT+CSMP - Set text mode parameters
    AT+CSDG - show text mode parameters
    AT+CSCB - Select cell broadcast message types

    I'm not sure, but to play with these, you may need to do an AT&W to write the settings. Again, I'm only referring back to my modem days where an ATZ would restore the modem back to a set saved state.

    Not sure if any of this will help or inspire anyone. I'm likely to wait to see what happens with the next firmware update for the phone. I'm hoping that some of the quirks which probably exist due to a lack of testing for markets outside the US will be rectified magically :-).

    We've been working on these commands in #iphone-config

    We have identified the messages are getting through to the iphone's baseband but the application is ignoring them.
    Whether this is a baseband setting still that needs to be configured or a bug in the application is not certain yet but Darkmen (who did some work in SpringBoard to do with OP logos) did show an interest in this so fingers crossed he is looking at it from the application side.

    Configure your VoiceMail button as per these instructions:

    Install SSH and Minicom {minicom is installed through the BSD Subsystem}
    run minicom -s from the SSH shell
    Select Serial Port Setup
    Press A
    Change the device to /dev/tty.debug
    Press Esc
    Move down to Exit and press enter
    Modem will initialize

    {Debug mode is a lot less responsive than tty.baseband but you don't have to shutdown CommCenter}

    {TIP: hold the space bar down until you get a response from the modem, then you can type the commands, if you find debug mode to hard to work with, use /dev/tty.baseband but you will have to shutdown commcenter first.}

    If your voicemail access number is a short code or a non international number (e.g. Tesco Mobile UK = 905), type the command:

    AT+CSVM=1,"905",129

    If your voicemail access number is a long code international number (e.g. Orange UK = 447973100123), type the command:

    AT+CSVM=1,"447973100123",145

    confirm its been taken with:

    AT+CSVM?

    Exit Minicom with Ctrl A Z x



    Configure you VoiceMail Notifications as per these instructions:

    Dial into your VoiceMail using the access code (or using your newly configure button :-)

    Listen to the instructions, you are looking for a notification menu.

    e.g. on Tesco Mobile UK:

    dial 905
    Press * {for the voicemail main menu}
    Select option 4 {for the mailbox settings menu}
    Press 1 {for the voicemail notification menu}
    Press 1 {for the on screen voicemail notification symbol}


    Again, special thanks to mjaste over on IRC #iphone-config
    Sometimes the simplest things are right under your nose :-)

    I've tried a few methods of activating my VM button. none of them work. I'm using the original AT&T sim card.

    Yeah, I went exhaustively through my carrier (telstra in australia)'s voicemail options looking for a notification menu late last week, including trying to select options that weren't offered, and couldn't find anything that allowed me to change the notification type. :-\
