Set up voicemail pin abroad

 Could somebody please help? Despite using the same handset abroad before, I now seem to have to set a pin before I can get to my voicemail box. I'm no longer in the UK and it states I have to be in the UK to set it up. I'm away for a few weeks and need access to it. Is there a way round this please? Thank you.

Hi @Scvrs


Welcome to the community. 🙂


Whereabouts in the world are you?


I recommend doing a manual network search and try again using a different available network. It's my belief that not all international networks require a PIN for voicemail:


Device type Steps
iPhone Settings > Carrier > Toggle Automatic OFF
Android  Settings > More Networks > Mobile Networks > Network Operators > Tap OK
Windows  Settings > Mobile Network > Network Selection > Tap on start manual search


Let me know if that helps.
