Has anyone else had a problem when dialing 11 and then a Sprint phone number? It always worked for me in the past but quit working yesterday. Also, does anyone know if you can add your own number to your Pick 3 list so you don't get charged airtime minutes when you check your voicemail?

Thanks so much!!

Why would you dial 11 and then a sprint number??? what is 11 for??? and second I am sure you could get your own number added to your pick three list. But why would you need to. You don't get charged minutes for calling your voicemail. Not if you have mobile to mobile. You are calling a Sprint customer (yourself) so why would you get charged minutes???

yes you can.....that's what I did

also remember, you can dial option 8 and dial out to any number you want...so making your own number as a pick 3 number essentially gives you unlimited minutes

On some Sprint phones/numbers, calling 11 before the numbers makes it go right to voicemail.

As for getting charged to call voicemail, I think the jury is still out on that.

try it out yourself...make a quick 5 calls to your voicemail...don't make any other calls..and check before and about 1 hour later and u will see that it comes out of your AT minutes...this fact is irrefutable..you get charged peak mins when calling voicemail during peak times!

Wouldn't calling yourself, which is what getting voicemail is, be under the catagory, almost by default, a mobile to mobile call? I am, after all, calling a Sprint mobile number (my number) from a Sprint cellphone (my phone).
