as i posted in an earlier post about not being able to set default o2 voicmail number. the phone is always setting it to tesco mobiles vm number. well i have found a file in the \data\cust\xml\voicemail-conf.xml that lists alot of different networks and their vm numbers, so im thinking if i change tesco's from 905 to 901 it will be sorted. the only problem is when i try to save changes to the file with root explorer is says unable to save changes. any suggestions?

Edit the file and save it to sd. Then delete the old file then copy the new one in. That should work.

I must be doing something stupid, but I cannot delete that voicemail-conf.xml file. I'm rooted as per Pauls instructions, but I cannot delete the file or change it's permissions. I'm tried the root mode of ES File Explorer, Rom Toolbox's root browser and I attempted it through adb commands. When I do 'adb shell' I get a $ sign. I can type 'su' and I get the #, but still cant change permissions or delete anything in /data/cust/xml

'adb remount' gives me a 'remount failed: Operations not permitted' error. The strange thing is, I've deleted stuff from elsewhere. I removed the UNO trial and Sims 3 trial with no problems.

Any ideas anyone ?

If you haven't got any data to be able to download the giffgaff settings, fear not.
Just type these settings in manually here: settings > wireless & networks > mobile networks > network settings > access point names.

GPRS-3G Settings

Connection Name: giffgaff - GPRS
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Proxy Server Address: 193.113.200.195
Proxy Port:8080
Login - Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MCC: 234
MNC: 10


MMS Settings

Connection Name: giffgaff - MMS
APN - Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: mms


If any settings are missing it means don't change them.

If it helps anyone who is trying to edit and move that voicemail xml file, I couldn't do it from this location: /data/cust/xml/voicemail-conf.xml

I simply couldn't delete it for nothing.

But there is an identical file in /cust/europe/xml that I could delete and add in the
edited file. Worked sweet as a nut. My proper voicemail number now shows as default. Thanks for the tip Frankish

I am unable to delete voicemail-conf.xml using ES Explorer but there is no 'europe' folder in my 'cust' folder either.

Edit: Ignore me; I was looking in data/cust when in fact the 'cust' folder is in the root directory. There is also a folder named 'normal' between 'cust' and 'europe' on my phone.

Edit 2: Still can't change or delete the file, though. :-(

yeah, that's it. I must have missed out the normal. Just looked again this is path: /cust/normal/europe/xml then it's the voicemail-conf.xml file that you change.

You have to search through loads of numbers, but for O2 to giffgaff you have to find 901 and then change it to 443, then copy and save the file to the sd card, then delete the old one and copy/paste the changed file back in to the same location.

Regarding not be able to delete, try ticking or unticking USB debugging in the settings menu. I used rom toolbox pro and I believe I needed to tick it to make changes at root level.

Hope that helps. It does work once its done and it stays changed even if you install a new rom

Maybe someone nice person with the appropriate skills could make a CWM flashable zip with modded voicemail-conf.xml file. It might save a lot of hassle for people having to do it via root explorer. ;)

That's probably not me sorry. I still have the altered file but I wouldn't know how to make it flashable. I'm sure I could put in a zip file but not sure if that's all that's needed to make it play with Cwm?

Thanks for the update. Ticking/unticking USB debugging didn't make a difference. Think I'll have to purchase Root Explorer pro. Have been using ES File Explorer.

I tried with ES File Explorer but didn't get any where. I'll probably have to try Root Explorer Pro but I don't really want to spend £3 on it to find I'm still having problems.

I'm on O2 and there are other numbers besides the voicemail number. Are these stored anywhere in the settings?

When the exclusive period ends for Vodafone, I imagine if O2 sell the phone, there will be O2 settings available. Could someone who buys the phone once it comes out on O2, just create a ROM with the O2 settings. Flashing that would be simpler. Of curse typing in 901 every time isn't exactly difficult.

That's funny cause my phone had the default number as 901. That's the number I couldn't change with out this fix, cause I needed the giffgaff one.
