    Hi,
    Do you mean your message centre number to enable you to send text
    messages? If so, your service provider will happily give you that via a call
    or their website. Enter it somewhere in Messages/Settings and it should be
    sorted. I am guessing that the americanism 'mailbox' may have confused them!

    Cheers,

    Martin

    Well that's a Vodafone code, so assuming your provider is Vodafone, the
    mailbox No is 121 (on PAYG anyway)

    I know that - it's when I want to divert my calls, it asks for a Voice
    Mailbox number

    So what should I put - before I had a normal number to put in!

    Re: Finding my mailbox number

    oh, dang, I had this same damn problem with some 3rd part mob that used the
    Optus network !!

    They were charging me $5 a month for v/mail, and when I went to try get my
    $$$$ worth and check my messages I got the same recorded msg asking for my
    m/box number.

    I complained till I was blue in the face regarding these charges, and it
    wasnt till I threatened legal action I got a call from someone over there to
    oversee my problem.

    The voicemail service had not even been activated on my account.

    call you ph company and scream blue murder down the line(or politely ask),
    request the service to be activated on your account.

    Hope this helps.
