Hi I heard there was a way that you can ring a mobile number and go straight through to their voicemail.

Does anyone know the number you have to put at the start or end of the number you are dialling? If anyone knows it for vodafone and telecom mobiles and landlines that would be great..

There isn't any way to go straight to their VM box.

What you can do however if you're on Vodafone is to go to your own VM and then send a message. This message is sent direct to the VM box of the other user.

I assume that the functionality still exists that depending on whether you add 0 at the front or not will actually ring the other person and play the message which also works to other networks or landlines.

Yes, if you send a message from the vodafone voicemail to another vodafone mobile but leave off the "0" when entering the destination, it will go straight into the destination voicemailbox and they'll just get the sms notification.  


Enter the '0' and the recipient will be in for a world of pain... especially if they don't listen to the full message, as the platform will keep calling them (all night long) with the message until they listen to the whole thing.

You can always do what we did sometimes back when i was on the helpdesk and calling a customer that we really didnt want to talk to. You dial it on 2 phones, one will ring, one will go to voice mail - hand up the one that rings and leave a message on the other one. Withhold caller ID however ;)
