    Local voice mail numbers requested and listed here…


    I’ve been searching for a local voice mail number for different locations I travel to but haven’t found any yet. So I thought I’d start a thread on this. When people travel, they sometimes want to check their voicemail from a landline phone so they don’t use their package minutes. And if they dial from a landline they don’t want to call a long distance number back where they are from or they don’t want to call their own cell phone number (it would be long distance where they are). SO… most Cingular service areas (at least in my state, Alabama) have a “local” voicemail number in each area code so that it can be checked locally. When I purchased my phone my “local” voicemail number was already programmed in (or a Rep did it for me).

    So if we could help each other out and list the numbers we know of that would be great! (I am not sure but these numbers may also be called “ back door numbers ”.)

    List your own local VM number: list state, city, area code, and then the number you use to dial voice mail.

    If you need a VM number tell what state, city if possible, and what area code and maybe someone will know it!

    Here’s my info:
    Alabama – Birmingham, (205) , My local voice mail number is 1-205-616-0660

    You're in Knoxville, which is considered part of the DCS market, which covers NC/SC and parts of TN and GA. The VM number is 704 451 8989. Here are some local VM retreival numbers for Raleigh, NC: (919) 412-8989, 413-8989, 601-8989, 649-8989, 749-8989.

    It comes from BellSouth Mobility DCS, which was the original name for the network.

    "Digital Communications System", I believe. As techfury pointed out, it was part of the original company's name, as well.

    Additionally, the voicemail backdoor number in any DCS market should be npa-nxx-8989, where npa-nxx are the area code and exchange of your mobile number. This may not be true of areas where number pooling is in effect, but I don't know if there are any of those in the DCS markets.

    919-607-xxxx is pooled with VZW (I know because my sister's number is 919-607-32xx).

    I have two numbers with Cingular, both based out of Santa Rosa, CA, 707-228-xxx and 707-548-xxxx, the VM number that works for both is 707-548-1234, I tried 707-228-1234 once, but it doesn't work and gives only a busy signal.

    Well, let me guess. You're either lost, or desperately searching for a good tailor.

    Anyone know the VM # for Monroe, LA area code 318?

    I ask this because the preprogrammed #'s that were in my phones didn't work. When I pressed "1" for the first time to set up my VM it didn't go to setup. Instead it asked me to enter my 10 digit cell #, then it told me it was an invalid VM #. The only way I could get my VM set up was to dial my own cell # then it went into the setup menu correctly.
