    Hi ,

    I am unable to set this up. I am in Hyderabad and perhaps, time has elapsed since your post, maybe the system has changed? I am being asked to press 1 but it is on a screen and when I enter 1 and hit send, it is saying that it is an invalid ID. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi,

    Issue with my voicemail is that callers do not get the option to leave a message when I do not pick up or if the phone is switched off.
    If I forward my calls to +919810098200…surprisingly callers get my voicemail, however in this scenario all my calls get forwarded as opposed to just those situations when I can not attend the call i.e. my phone does not even ring and the caller goes to my voicemail.
    Anyone have any tips on how only those calls are forwarded to voicemail which I can not pick up?

    Thanks,

    Arun

    If you struggling with call forwarding options on an iphone or rather lack of them…use USSD codes to enable the scenarios in which you want voicemail activated e.g. If unanswered, busy, switched off, etc. A few are below:

    Busy: **67*#, then SEND
    e.g. If in Delhi… **67*9810098200# then SEND

    Unreachable: **62*#, then SEND
    e.g. **62*9810098200# then SEND

    No Reply: **61*#, then SEND

    All calls: **21*#, then SEND

    Cheers,

    Ark

    This is great info. After I moved to AirTel prepaid I regretted not having voicemail. Even AirTel customer care professionals had no clue how to activate this service.

    You have really helped out via easy to follow to the point white paper on this underestimated but very useful service.

    Thanks a lot

    Cheers!
