Unlocked iPhones: How to re-enable voicemail

Unlocked iPhones: How to re-enable voicemail

If you've unlocked your iPhone via the AnySIM application or another method and have lost your ability to access visual voicemail, there's an easy fix -- as reported by iPhone Atlas reader "Gumps," and originally posted on on the user forums by Simon K.

Gumps writes:

"Many people including me had an unusable voicemail button on the iphone after unlock. I have found a simple solution thanks to forum's user Simon K."

Open the Phone application, then tap the keypad function. Enter the following:

*5005*86*phonenumber# (where "phonenumber" is the number you dial to get to your voicemail) then press the Call button.
