Can anyone help.
My dad has a Samsung 4 and whenever he dials 901 for his voicemail, he gets a text message from 999/112 saying this isnt the right way to contact them.
I dont have a samsung. Ive checked the voicemail seting and it is set to 901. So I'm not sure hwta I need to do to sort it out for him.
He doesn't want to be clogging up their services.
Thank you in advance

If he actually dials 901 rather than the shortcut key, does it do the same ?

@Heidi To eliminate it as a possible cause, if you have an O2 store nearby, tell your dad to call in and ask them to swap his sim for a new one. The process is usually very quick and it's free. He will need to bring identification with him to prove he is the account holder.

Try dialling 1710 on the handset to switch off text notiication.

Hi @Heidi, how is your dad getting on with this?
Thanks everyone for trying to troubleshoot this one. This was a known problem for a short period of time caused by the Android software. Google has now fixed it, so @Heidi and anyone else if you had this issue earlier, please make sure your phone is set to allow updates.
