Your voicemail is automatically 'switched on' when you join giffgaff.

To change your voicemail settings, you need to use a few 'USSD codes'/ Shortcodes, which are short codes / numbers that you simply dial on your mobile and hit the SEND key (they don't cost anything to use).

  • Switch on: Short code is '1616' - Alternatively dial *004# then press the SEND key 
  • Switch off: Short code is '1626' - Alternatively dial #004# then press the SEND key

 

If you're not certain of the status, dial *#004# then press the SEND key to check

Have you tried leaving yourself a voicemail and then deleting it to see if that refreshes the icon?

dialling 1626 only cancels diverts to voicemail and not voicemail itself.

Have you listened to your voicemail? A symbol usually denotes a new message and would remain until they have been listened to and the network then sends the signal to the phone to clear it.

Dial 443 to access your voicemail. It requires an active goodybag with at least 1 minute remaining call allowance or 8p credit.

If it's the first time you've accessed it then it will ask you to set up a PIN.

When I get an icon it just means voicemail is full.. I usually delete and reboot and it does the trick.. try this and let us know... good luck.
