voicemail

Whilst trying to get my shiny new Android phone setup, I came across a small issue with the voicemail
to email service in Asterisk. Seems Android can’t handle the wav49 codec, so there’s a simple fix to
change the codec in the voicemail.conf

Original – voicemail.conf

[general]
; Formats for writing Voicemail.  Note that when using IMAP storage for
; voicemail, only the first format specified will be used.
;format=g723sf|wav49|wav
format=wav49|wav

New – voicemail.conf

[general]
; Formats for writing Voicemail.  Note that when using IMAP storage for
; voicemail, only the first format specified will be used.
;format=g723sf|wav49|wav
format=wav|gsm

The only downside is that the new WAV attachments are much larger, however – being able to
listen to them under Android, outweighs that issue.
