Voicemail speed dial

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Scopacetic, Mar 20, 2004.

    My Verizon phones have voicemail preset to speed dial #1. The problem is
    that I can't find a way to edit the entry. I want to put in a hard pause
    followed by #, my password and # to simplify the process of logging in and
    checking voicemail. Anyone know if there is a way to modify speed dial 1? I
    have a Kyocera 7135 and LG VX4500.

    Thanks,
    D Wilson

    There isn't, but you can simply program speed dial 2 or any other one
    the way you want to.

    The Dr offers: On th 7135 first display "messages", then use your "option"
    button (lower left icon on the writing screen) and under settings you'll
    find voicemail... whch displays voicemail settings and gives you three
    options:
    voice mail sounds/reminders
    reset voicemail count
    AND Voice Mail #.

    Suggesting this sequence to automate your mail: 1234567890,,#xxx#11
    1-0 is your 10 digit phone number
    ,, = two pauses
    # to force the prompt
    xxx your password
    # forces a termination of your password
    11 = check for new messages

    Wow, thanks. That did it all right. Strange that it is placed in such an out
    of the way menu. Now for the LG VX 4500, anyone know a similarly arcane way
    to change the speed dial entry for voicemail?

    I know, but it means one less speed dial location (at least from 1 to 9),
    and it just seems stupid to make the entry uneditable. Minor issue, but it's
    always irritated me, the way a little rattle in a new car does.

    I also have a LG4500 and yes, there definitely is a way to change the
    default speedial for VOICEMAIL. To get to the necessary screen from the
    desktop screen, PRESS:

    A) Menu (upper left key), then
    B) Messages (3), then
    C) Msg Settings (6), then
    D) Edit Voice MailBox # (8).

    Once you are at screen (D), Clear out the *86 and enter *86 (space)TTxxxx#
    where x is your password and # is the pound key. Press enter to save.
    (Wait until the phone gives you a confirmation; and then Hit END to return
    to the desktop.)

    Every time you need to call voicemail now, just press and hold the (1) key
    until dialing starts. The phone will dial *86, pause two seconds and then
    enter your password with out any prompting from you.

    Two caveats:

    1) This works for the Northern California Bay area market. I haven't
    traveled the USA with this particular phone, so it's possible it is not
    compatible with every Verizon system. (I previously had a LG TM510 and a
    similar setup worked everywhere I traveled.)

    2) When you receive an indication of new VOICEMAIL, IF you press (Listen),
    the phone will only dial *86, not the newly edited number.

    To have the phone dial the newly edited number, I hit CLEAR to get back to
    the desktop, and then press and hold (1) until dialing starts. The phone
    will dial the edited voicemail number you just changed.

    I hope this helps.

    Greg.

    MENU -> 3 (Messages) -> 6 (Msg Settings) -> 8 (Edit Voice Mailbox #).
    Upper case T will pause for 2 seconds, and upper case P will wait for
    you to press SEND before continuing.

    Thanks. After the post about my Kyocera, I followed the same 'logic tree'
    and found the solution you describe Under messages -> message settings.
    Interesting that the people at Verizon had no clue about this.
