    Hi, I need to figure out how to record an outgoing message...I have a Verizon Phone, but I don't recall what kind. I just got it today, so I can look on the box if that info is needed in order to get help. Please help me ASAP! Thank you! :)

    Setting Up Your Mailbox
    ACCESSING THE VOICE MAIL SYSTEM

    1. With your wireless phone turned off, call your wireless number from any touchtone landline phone.

    2. When you hear the recorded announcement, interrupt it by pressing #.

    3. When you are asked to enter your temporary password, press 1 plus the last four digits of your wireless telephone number.

    4. Follow the prompts to change your password and to record a greeting.

    TIP: If you smile when you record your personalized greeting, it comes across in your tone of voice!

    Also, edit your voicemail entry in your cell phone so you only have to dial your voice mailbox and it will do the rest for you, especially useful for when you're driving.

    *86p#xxxx# (*86 is your mailbox access, p is a pause (press the menu key and you'll see the option insert pause, and the 4 x's are whatever your password is, you can actually use between 4 & 7 digits, 4 is just easier to remember because it's less numbers; the # signs are used to separate different options).

    Also remember that when you access your voice mailbox from your cel phone during peak hours, it uses airtime. Calling your cel from a landline does not.

    Simply dial your cel number from any landline, if your cel is on you can let it ring and then go into voicemail; or you can hit the ignore or end key and it will go right into it. If it's off, it'll go right in anyways. When you hear your voice, press #, your password and # again, and you're good to go.

    Another cool thing too, I know it definitely works for Verizon, not sure about other carriers; when you call someone who has Verizon, if you want to bypass their voicemail altogether, press * and you'll hear the beep and you're golden.

    Good luck!

    On verizon, if you call your own cell phone number from your cell phone instead of *86, it uses your "IN" minutes instead of cell minutes.

    I got that tip from a site that instructs how to use voicemail.
