Reactivating your old Voicemail yourself using a GSM Code

If these steps don’t work you will need to contact your carrier.

  1. Go to your phone app that you would use to make a call on your iPhone
  2. Make sure the key pad is selected and enter the GSM code for your mobile carrier. GSM codes are free calls.
  3. Press the green “send” button
  4. Check the words on the screen - you should see the words “success”
  5. Tap DISMISS


If you see the words error – just check that you entered the code exactly as stated including any * or # characters. If this fails again, the best option is to phone your carrier.
