Transmission of voice messages by extension instead of name?

Is there a setting in the unit in advance voice messages by extension, rather then the spelling of a name? I think the name is faster, but for some reason... we have a few vps who think differently.

Thank you


Hi Tommer,

Hows things? I hope all is well with you!

Take a look at this snippet and document. I think that's what you're looking for:

Change your Message to setting

Cisco Unity provides two methods for sending messages to other subscribers using the keyboard of your phone:

Spell out a name of the Subscriber.

Enter an extension of the Subscriber.

You change the address of message that Cisco Unity uses by default only from Cisco Unity Assistant, not by phone. Depending on how Cisco Unity is set up, you may be able to switch between the entrance of the spelling and number by pressing on # when prompted to send a message by phone regardless of the message addressing the setting you choose in the Cisco Unity Assistant.

To change your Message to setting


Step 1 in the Cisco Unity Assistant, in the Preferences menu, click on the phone Menu.

Page on the phone preferences Menu of stage 2, in addressing when a Message I would like to identify a Subscriber by section, click the option you want to use by default for messages that you send.

Step 3 scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.

Or change to a default parameter;

Conversation settings for the Subscriber model

The conversation of the standard Subscriber is a set of prerecorded instructions and options that Cisco Unity plays by phone to subscribers when they listen to, send, and manage messages, and they change their Cisco Unity settings. Note that Cisco Unity also offers an alternative to the standard conversation conversation.

Subscribers > Subscriber model > Chat Page

* Identify a Subscriber by *.

Select how the subscribers address messages to other subscribers. Subscribers can address messages over the phone by entering extensions of the Subscriber, by spelling out their name or spelling of their surnames. Name address requires letters keyboards on phones of the Subscriber.

In the conversation subscriber, subscribers can pass a name address and addressing by extension by pressing the key twice. Note that when the box hit the search name spelled is disabled on the system > Configuration > page settings, subscribers can address messages over the phone only by entering subscriber extensions.

    During the transmission of a message, it is still blocked with red lines around the message and title. I've never had this happen with other programs such as Windows Live Mail, hope you can help eliminate this very annoying problem.
    Thank you.

    Ignore them. They are the attempt of Thunderbird to help you navigate through complex systems of images, often resulting in multiple shipments. They allow you to decide exactly here where in a message you insert new. I sometimes try to flatten the content by removing unnecessary nested frames, but it is generally not worth the effort.

    Send a copy of this message to yourself and you will see that they are invisible to the recipient - until it is re-released in Thunderbird.

  • "Voice Message Upload Error" - creation of a personal voicemail does not work

    HI again!

    Just a note to ask if someone at Skype can help with a tech questions. Just set up my new shiny number (which does not yet!) and then tried to set up voicemail. Sometimes I can save a virtual machine but not read or save it and I get messages like;

    'Upload voice error message' and 'Voice Message error reading '.

    Seems to Skype and I got off to a bad start! Help appreciated and I tried this for an hour and no luck at all!

    Thank you


    I had the same problem, and I was looking for help, but could not find.

    It's very frustrating not being able to record a greeting voicemail customized because default greeting looks like very hostile. (A stern survey woman says: "the party that you want to reach is unavailable!") He said not even the appellants what number they have reached so they could be left wondering if they have reached a sufficient number.

    In any case... I hit on an idea and tried it out, and it worked!

    One of the buttons has two sets of arrows going round and round. It is the button to reset the voicemail for the default greeting. You wouldn't click to record a custom greeting, but I moved and that you have clicked this button, and he asked me if I was sure that I wanted to return to the default welcome message. On a hunch, I selected the Yes option. After I did it, all of a sudden I could record a voice greeting! (Press the red circle to save, press again to stop the recording and press the green arrow to play it back and see how it sounds.)

    I hope this helps someone out there.

  • Unknown caller, leaving voice messages

    Does anyone know how to prevent a caller to leave voice messages? Initially it was a normal number that I blocked. Now, it appears as Unknown caller and leaves voice messages all the time. I think it's one of these robo-dialers as voice messages, it leaves is just constant beep like a fax machine. I get about 5-7 calls from this number every day and it leaves a virtual machine all the time. Quite boring. I think that this beyond the normal settings on the iPhone so maybe there is an application that can do?

    You can block someone from calling or texting you in two ways:

    To block someone who has been added to the Contacts on your phone, go to settings > phone > blocked > add new. All Contacts window appears where you can scroll through the names and type the name of the contact you want to block. You will be taken back to the window blocked with the name added to the list of blocked contacts.

    Parameters, contacts can be also blocked selection of Messages or Facetime and then following the instructions above.

    In the case where you want to block a number that is not stored as a contact in your phone, go to the phone application > Recents. Watch the number (or name) you want to block and tap the blue 'i' with a circle around it to the right of the number. Scroll to the bottom of the plug contact that appears and select "Block this caller." The message "You will not receive FaceTime, messages or phone calls from people on the red list" appears with two options: block contact or cancel. Hit the block Contact to add the number to the blocked list, bad.

    Block Messages by selecting the message with the contact and typing Contact thread in the upper right. Select the information icon and move forward with the same instructions as in the most recent in the phone tab.
