how to check phone # for person who leaves voice mail?


Jan 17, 2013, 10:24 PM
When callers dial my cell and I don't answer, I can check their number under "missed calls" ... as long as they don't leave a voice mail. However, if they wait until my voice mail answers, then their number won't show up in the missed call list. This can be frustrating when someone mumbles their number when they leave a message.

Is this a limitation of my phone, or a limitation of T-mobile's network, or is there some setting I need to adjust?

I have the Galaxy S and it leaves the number in the log whether they leave voice mail or not, and whether I answer or not. Sounds like it may be a problem with your phone.

What type of phone do you have?

Thanks for replies. For some reason, I'm not getting notification when replies are posted.

I have Sony Ericsson W300i phone. I had assumed this was a carrier issue. Boy it sure would be nice if there's a setting I can change in my phone that will log the phone number when someone leaves a message.

Ronm (or anyone reading this), does your phone log the # if someone goes straight to voice mail when phone is powered off?

No the number does not go into the log if the phone is turned off. No phone will do that. Why do you turn it off anyway? And it will also not go into the log if you have lost the signal.
