    Question Voice Mail Password

    Hi Everyone
    Does anybody know how to automatically put in your password for voicemail? With the Treo speed dial there was an option for extra numbers that would be dialed after a call was connected.

    In the voicemail box:

    *86p0000#

    Where 0000 = your pin number

    If it is too fast, add another p for additional pause time.

    Wouldn't it be *86p#0000?

    I have to hit # before I can enter my PIN.

    also, i belive i read somewhere that if you use the '*86' you are billed air time, however, if you use your actual phone number (i.e. '6175551212p0000#') it is considered verizon to verizon call and you are not charged... however, i don’t know the validity behind this...

    If you look at the Verizon web page they say that it will use air time....

    I don't get that many voice mail messages... so with the few times I actually use it, I don't think it is going to be much of an issue with the plan I have. *86p0000# works fine for me.

    Its best to use FULL (including area code) numbers for ALL contacts including your voicemail. If you ever travel outside the verizon network (extended, roaming) the non-full numbers wont work.

    Example 7145551212PPP#xxxx (one P mis not enough as verizon does not answer quick enough sometimes)

    There is a special button setup for that already. #1

    Use Start -> Settings > Phone Handset Icon

    Then you can use it by simply pressing and holding the number 1 on the front keypad to connect.

    Thanks I did modify the existing number (*86) to use my number and password and it works great. Now if I can just get "Voice Command" to dial it I would be set.

    Set up a new contact called "Voice Mail" and enter your 10 digit number, the appropriate pauses, then your password as the phone number. Then have voice command "call voice mail". Alternately you can create a contact record for yourself with your mobile phone number including the pauses and password. Either way works.

    This is really neat and worked like a charm. I put in the double pause just in case and it worked great.

    Love that we can add the 1 and go straight to the first message!
