    Voicemail password doesn't dial..

    I have an odd issue with my droid that I was hoping there is a solution for.

    Both when calling voice mail from the notification bar or contacts, the droid dials *86 but then, I added a couple of pauses and my security code (password). The droid will not consistently send the pauses and 4 digit security code when it's up to my face (dark). If I pull the phone away from my face and wait a couple of seconds, it will send the characters.

    This also happens when calling businesses with menu trees to reach someone in particular. In other words, the droid doesn't send the complete programmed number that you dial when the screen is dark from holding it against your face.

    This is bizarre behavior and a considerable nuisance.

    Anybody seen this and maybe have found an answer?

    Try just using 1 comma for the pause and see if that helps. I use 1 and mine works just fine. Maybe taking too long and causing the screen to time out?

    2 pauses is all you should need....

    OK, let me try this again.

    Essentially, the droid doesn't send any additional tones while being held up to my ear. that is, once the screen goes dark - nothing gets sent.

    I would like to just hit the voice mail contact and then wait until prompted to hit "1" to play new messages, or whatever.

    I had 3 pauses (commas) inserted between *86 and my security code (password) and changing it to 2 or 1 or whatever doesn't change the fact that no additional digits are sent unless I pull the phone away from my ear.

    Try it and let me know if your droid behaves like you would expect.

    Voice Mail Login/Password

    I can confirm the same problem when using Droid as a handset - if the screen is dark the commands aren't sent. If I take it away from my face and the screen comes back on it then sends the tones. Haven't confirmed functionality in hands free operation. Would be nice to get this fixed/worked around.

    I've revised mine to just one comma and it works better than 2.
