Hi. I am trying to set up my voicemail on koodo prepaid. My general plan is active, and I just added a 500 min talk booster. I phone up my own number as directed, and a message comes on that this phone number is not active, though it is. What do I do next??

Hi Ian,

Try to switch off your phone for a minute, then back on, this might activate your voicemail :) Let us know if that worked!

Hi Sohia,

Thanks, but no, it not work - though I do get a different message - now it says that I cannot reach the client that I am trying to reach - try again or call *661 when I call *661 it says that this number is not in service.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy-Q SGH T589R. it used to be on the Rogers network - I unlocked it online. I have been told that certain features may not work on previously locked and now unlocked phones. Have I run into this as a problem here do you think!!

I sure like this whole community thing - and the communities are becoming more and more numerous, which is good!!

Ooh I see the answer I typed in yesterday didn't get through... I noticed you typed *661 but the actual number is *611... do other features work such as can you make a call to another number?

And yes this community is awesome, be careful you don't get addicted like some of us :D

Hi Sophia I'm already addicted!! And this is the first community that I have officially joined, though I have been an advocate of communities for the past 10 years.! 6 or 1, or 1 or 6 makes a big difference - I will try again later today and report back. Thanks for the info, and thanks for putting a smile on my face!

Hi again Sophia and whoever else is following this thread - it took some time, but it looks like it did re-set as you had predicted it might. Thanks!!! Now I have to find where to comment on some glitches i have discovered on the Koodo website.
