Switching your voicemail on/off

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, to check dial *#004# then press the SEND key

Just a quick note: "switch off" voicemail 'disables' voicemail - which means it changes the way the network deals with call diverts. When you 'switch off' / disable voicemail - it stops all calls going to your voicemail - this covers all types of call situation which would normally be diverted to voicemail (i.e. when you don't answer a call, when you have your phone switched off, and when you're are on another call).
