The voice commands work in my car but If I use *82 to unblock callers. Any reason why?


iMore Question

Because of my work and having to use my private phone at times to make calls I have a block through Verizon. My number comes up as restricted. To allow anyone to see the call is from me I add *82 in front of the number and it shows my name.
I had an android and it worked fine in my car when I gave a voice command to call someone.
I just got an Iphone SE. If I give a voice command to call someone from my car it calls them with no issue, unless it has the *82 and then it will not work (it says dialing but wont connect). I can hit the number with the *82 on my cell itself and then it will dial and work through my Bluetooth fine, but only if done manually. So regular numbers work fine its only the numbers I unblock with *82.
My android never had this problem and the *82 numbers work fine.
I went to a Verizon and to Chevy and no one seems to know what is causing this issue. Any idea what might be causing it,

Interesting....Use the Hey Siri feature to see if Siri can dial the numbers with the *82 prefix. I'm assuming you were using the car's inherent voice command feature.
