Default Backdoor voicemaill number for iPhone users

I had set up a customer's phone system's voicemail to outdial to
Cingular/ATT Fort Worth number of 817-999-9302.

The autodial sequence is:
817-999-9302-pause-[cellphone number]-pause-5-pause-1

It still works for their ATT phones, but the manger upgraded
to an iPhone and the ATT VM no longer recognizes his number.
After you input the [cellphone number], is says its not a valid
number, but his iPhone can still call his VM.

Any clues?

Try putting his SIM in another phone and see if there is a VM dialin
number in SIM phonebook; it should be in the first entry. The reason I
say this is because my wife's iPhone "died" once, and I put her SIM in
another phone while I dried out the water in her iPhone <g>. And she
could access VM through the standard hold-down-1 method despite it
being an iPhone account. It wasn't a leftover number in the phone
memory either, because it was an unlocked T-Mobile handset. Must have
been a SIM phonebook entry.

Why not have the iphone dial its own number? That'll put the iphone on
its own voicemail and the system should ask for the userid to access it.
ATT should work like the other carriers do, right?

My sequence on Alltel, for instance, is:
[my sellphone number] pause - pause - pause - pause [my access code]
pause - pause - 1 [SEND]

It dials my number, then the phone waits in touchtone mode until the
voice finishes asking for the password to access, then touchtones the
code, two pauses let the instructions start and it keys 1 on top of them
to retrieve new messages.

Using one autodial is MUCH better than manually entering it all every
time with the smartkey. I key the voice recognition and say "Call *****
Box" from the call key on the Motorola S9 stereo headset, interrupting
the net radio station playing from the A2DP on the N800 tablet. The
whole call is voice automated at that point and sure makes voicemail
easy to use.....

Voicemail received, key the call key on the headset to hang up on it and
put the MUSIC back on the headset....(c;

This won't work on the road because the stupid ROKR Z6m can ONLY talk to
ONE Bluetooth gadget at a time. If the tablet's using BT DUN, I have to
disconnect the tablet so the headset will connect, or take off the
headset and make the call on the phone itself while still connected to
the tablet DUN. That'll crash the tablet because the stupid phone can't
figure out how to deliver DATA and VOICE simultaneously. Those are two
glaring deficiencies of the Motorola Z6m slidephone....both related to
the BT chipset. The S9 connects to handsfree on the phone and A2DP
stereo on the tablet simultaneously just fine...when the tablet is on
wifi to free up the stupid phone. The tablet will connect to GPS, HID
keyboard, Sellphone DUN and the Motorola S9 on handsfree or
A2DP...simultaneously! Nokia was amused. If I'd bought a NOKIA
sellphone, I'd be using handsfree/A2DP and DUN even from the
phone...simultaneously. Wrong phone purchase I'm stuck with....until
next time...(c;

Get the iPhone to dial its own number and touchtone in its own id code
to automate the process....works great....(c;

But all of what you said has absolutely nothing to do with my question.

Due to visual voicemail, the voicemail systems are independent. If you
have another phone, you can swap SIMs to pry the numbers out.

In short, what you need to do is pull the iPhone's SIM card, pop it into
another GSM phone.

Press and hold "1" until
voicemail dials, then hang up, and check the recent calls.

Most phones will reveal the number, although I did have one (Sony w810i?
maybe, not sure which phone it was anymore) that just showed
"voicemail", in that case, adding it to the address book revealed the
number.

On Rogers' network in Canada, the iPhone visual voicemail system is
+1.6478029327 -- I realize that doesn't help you, but it does confirm
that this technique is possible.

You could also look at the "Call Forward" or "Call Divert" setting.
The number it is forwarding to "If Unavailable" should be the voicemail
number.

I suspected that. I'll have to get the info out of the phone to see
what number the iPhone's alternate voicemail number is.

I've had mixed results, some phones display "Voicemail" here even with
no matching entry in the local contact list or the SIM card contact
list.
