Short code access to Value Added Services (VAS) is commonly used in the roamers Virtual Home Environment, but when subscribers travel abroad the short code dialing may be unavailable or inaccessible due to different dialing sequences. This often causes frustration, because many roamers do not know the full numbers and passwords to access voicemail, and therefore never complete these calls.

- Provide mobile operators with a basis to increase their revenue potential from both the inbound and outbound roaming market
