    Is it not possible to change the pre-programmed speed dial on an LG VX
    4500 phone?

    If it is anything like a Nokia, it is reserved to call your voice mail.

    Yes, it is pre-programmed to call voice mail. I haven't been able to figure
    out how to erase that programming and replace it with something else.

    I know there are lots of other places to put numbers; its just the
    principal of the thing, you know? If I wanted *86 there I could program it
    myself. ;-)

    It is not not possible to change the *86 on LG phones.

    Let me guess...you're a southpaw? The '3' key is my favorite for
    speed dialing because I'm right handed and I can hit the key with my
    thumb. If you hold the phone in your left hand, the '1' key makes
    sense.

    This is simple to change, but be warned that you will have to dial *86
    to get your voice mails, even if you use the shortcut keys.

    A. Access the hidden menu that nobody wants you to know about. Press
    the 'menu' key, then press '0'. You will be prompted with "??????"
    for the Service Code. Enter six all zero's "000000".

    B. Choose item 6 labeled 'SMS'

    C. Choose item 8 labeled 'Edit Voice Mailbox #'

    D. Punch in whatever you want there.

    E. Hit 'End' key to exit.

    Hope this helps.

    - Sandy

    Sandy,

    What "...hidden menu that nobody wants you to know about"? How does one get
    to it on the LG?

    On the 3200 I have, which I'm gathering is probably similar, it came setup
    the same way, and I got rid of it. It was quite simple. Go into contacts.
    Delete every contact in there that you didn't put there.

    He's only interested in the speed dial. If you're saying *86 is always
    voice mail on LG phones, that may be, but I was easily able to manipulate
    the speed dials to my heart's content on my LG 3200.

    This is quite interesting, but on my phone I just got rid of the voice mail
    contact. You can still get to voice mail using *86 or other mechanisms in
    the phone.

    Bob,

    I certainly mis-read it. What I thought that Sandy meant was to first access
    the hidden menu, then take the steps noted. Actually, those steps were how
    to get into the hidden menu in the first place. I need more sleep!

    Well, at any rate, I certainly hope that method works for your 4500. I know
    my 6000 works that way, but no guarantee I guess that it'll work for all LG
    models.
