How Do I Add My Voicemail Number?

Jolla Care -

The keypad of Phone application has a shortcut to the voicemail service at #1 key. If you tap and hold this key, your Jolla will place a call to your voicemail service without any additional actions, in condition that you have saved your voicemail number in Settings > Apps > Phone.

You can set the voicemail number in the following ways:

Enter by typing

1. Visit menu Settings > Apps > Phone
2. Find item "Voicemail number". Tap it.
3. Type your voicemail number
4. Add your voicemail passcode to the end of the number (if you have the code in use) in this way:

xxxxxxxxxxpdddd

where xxxxxxxxxx is the actual phone number to call, p stands for pause, and dddd is your passcode which will be sent as DTMF tones to the voicemail service. Type the p character by tapping twice the *p button on the right of the keypad.

5. Swipe the display to the right to save the number.
