Cant transfer to voicemail

Anyone have any ideas?

I see a bunch of similar threads over the years and I don’t see much of a resolution on any of them. I just had this come up. Some things suggested in the other threads were to make sure that * is the voicemail prefix and to try ## instead of the transfer button on the phone. I checked/tried those.

Here is what I see in the CDR where I call in and they try to transfer me to voicemail for x106.

I checked

  • that x106 has voicemail enabled,
  • that the template that the phone is using has a dial plan that will accept *106,
  • that the “direct dial prefix” for voicemail is set to * and enabled,
  • that the version of Asterisk they’re running will support this on a different PBX (13.22.0),
  • and that it works with Yealinks specifically. The person that reported the issue is using a t42s and we tried with another t42s on a different system.

I see in the full asterisk log where she tries to transfer

pbx.c: Executing [*[email protected]:1] Answer("SIP/VI-Inbound_64.136.173.31-00000423", "") in new stack

then a few lines further down i see the where it processes the call as a “bad-number” and then starts the hangup procedure

So the issue is only wuth T42S model?

Can you post the full call trace?

I meant that this was reported by someone using a t42s so we tried with another t42s on a different pbx and it worked there.

Look through the feature codes page, there might be a conflict.

If you find none. Please post the full call trace.

Apparently when we tested on other phone servers we were dialing 4-digit extension numbers. This only seems to be an issue with 3-digit extension numbers, and more specifically 3-digit extensions in the 1XX range. I can duplicate the issue when I make x106 on a different PBX but it works fine for x206.

I don’t see anything obvious in the feature codes, the dial plan, or the advanced settings.

Can you post the full call trace?

Did you change the Speed Dial Feature Code from *10? Because if you didn’t *106 will be treated as *10 (speed dial) to extension 6. So you either need to change your speed dial feature code or your direct dial voicemail feature code.

Derp. Not sure how I missed that one. Thanks, that fixed it.
