    I started using YouMail for my voicemail and I want to modify the number that the phone dials when I press the voicemail shortcut. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Can't you just change it in the Phone apps preferences?

    You can't modify your voicemail number in the phone preferences.

    If you search the forum for these filenames, you'll find a few tutorials telling you how to locate the files, and which fields to edit with what program.
    What do you mean by using manual data settings? I'm not sure if I do or not.

    It's probably Off if you don't know. ;-)
    Well I don't even have a section called Manual Settings so I guess I don't use them. :-)

    I looked at the file and found Sprint listed twice. Which one do I add the voice mail number to?

    Sorry but Palm Pre spells 'trial&error'.
    Ok I'll do that. I just read that you can really screw stuff up by editing that file, so I didn't want to go the "trial and error" route with something so dangerous. Thanks!

    Sorry tomi666, but your change does not work with Sprint. I changed both "sprint" records but the buttons still called my Sprint VM.

    I'm trying to follow the instructions in this thread because I really hate having to put in my voicemail password every time (damn Verizon). I can't get the WebOS QI "receive a file" function to work however. I have added several mods with WebOS QI, so I think everything that should be working there is. I select tools->receive a file and copy

    /usr/lib/luna/CarrierNetworkSettings.db3

    into the first line, select a destination, click Get.... and nothing! What am I doing wrong?

    Phone: Pre
    Carrier: Verizon
    WebOS: 1.4.0
    Computer: Mac, OSX 10.6.4

    Has anyone gotten this to work for Verizon? I followed the walk through, but nothing changed when I tried dialing the voicemail number by pressing 1 in the phone app. See screen shots to see what I changed, saved, uploaded to the phone, and restarted.

    Bummer, thanks though.

    Sounds like a good homebrew app. I'd download it so I can have my password, etc. entered when I call VM.

    If you're on Verizon, they can set up your phone so that it will automatically put the voicemail password in for you. My dad's wife had this done, as she can never remember her passwords.

    I figured out how to do that by setting up a voicemail contact, but how do you get it to automatically dial the password if you tap on the "voicemail" alerts the phone throws up or by pressing and holing 1 on the the dialpad?

    I've searched for forums but this thread comes up.. ??

    Can this be done w/ Sprints 1.4.5 and if you could be so polite and point me in the right thread?

    I'm a fulltime G-Voice user and would like to reprogram my V-mail #. Thanks,

    Interesting that I've not seen this thread before.

    I don't know about other carriers, but Sprint has a system called "Conditional Call Forwarding". You dial *28 + <the number you want called>, and your unanswered/busy calls go to that number.

    Is there a way to edit the # that your 1 on the keypad goes to?


    So when I press and hold 'e' it dials my correct voicemail (google voice) #.

    thanks,

    Be sure to back up the original file and prepared to run into sync issues if anything goes wrong.
    Let me know if anyone figures out how to do this. That damn voicemail password really annoys the crap out of me.

    Can't you just set up a speed dial for your google voice number? That's what I do.

    Make sure your google voice number is listed in your contacts. Pull up the number in your contacts list, tap on contacts at top left corner, select "Set Speed Dial" and then select the speed dial key you want to set.

    For example, I set "V" for voicemail for my google voice number. When I open the phone app, I press and hold "V" on the keyboard for a few seconds and it dials my google voice number and allows me to access the voicemail.

    Although I haven't tried it, you can set up your google voice number (or any number) to also enter a hard pause or timed pause + your PIN so you don't have to manually enter the PIN each time. See the link below for more info:
