    Need help after Firmware upgrade - Voice Mail issue

    Hi All,

    Something weird happened to my 7135 and I am sure there is someone on this board that can probably help me out.

    I had my phone updated here in Toronto and I it really has brought new life to the phone.

    It operates way better than it ever did.

    With the exception of one thing.

    Before when I got a voice mail my phone would tell me and I would hit the button to take me to the messages screen.

    There I would click on the line "1 Voice Mail Message"

    Along the bottom of the next screen was:

    Done Check Reset


    Now that I have been upgraded ... the CHECK button is missing.

    Do I have to program something to put that button back?

    It is driving me crazy!

    If someone could help I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks


    Derek

    I recall a discussion of this way back when the firmware update was just released. I'm sure others will confirm this. I think that that option (button) is removed as a result of the firmware upgrade, and there is no way to get it back.

    I believe MGuzzy is right. There's no way to get it back. As a workaround, you can open the Messages application and set your voice mail number in it's Voice Mail options. That will have the affect of programming the number into the "1" key on the keypad. Simply hold down that key for 2-3 seconds, and the 7135 will automatically dial the number that you programmed in the Messages application. That's the way I check mine.

    Thanks for the update... I thought I was going crazy.

    I searched everywhere looking for the setting.


    I have programed my phone to check VM by holding the 1 key.

    I just liked the old way better.

    I'm ready to update my phone to the new firmware as well. Do you recommend that I load apps fresh after the update or can I shoot them all back with Backup Buddy? Also, do I have to do anything special before I hotsync back from my desktop for the first time after the update?
    Thanks.

    After I had my "35" flashed with the new firmware my phone still gives you the options of DONE - CHECK - RESTART, but when I hit CHECK it closes the app. and returns the screen to whatever app. was open before I recieved a message. I just did like SilvrDrgn except I put my voice mail number in an empty speed dail slot.

    Russmd, when I had mine flashed I got all my apps. back with Backup Buddy no problem. I didnt have to do anything special before my first new hotsync, so far I've had no problems and it's was flashed right after the firmware was released. Had it done at Verizon even though they didnt want to do it.
