How to Call Voicemail From a Verizon Phone
Voicemail is one of the most commonly used utilities on a Verizon phone. It enables others to leave messages if you're unavailable and allows you to manage those messages at a later time. Here's how to retrieve, delete and save a voicemail message on any Verizon phone, regardless of manufacturer
Press *, then "86" and push "Send." Or hold down the "1" button until the screen reads "voicemail" and shows an icon of a cell phone. Or go to the "Messages" menu and scroll down to "voicemail," then select it. Push "Send" while in the "voicemail" menu to be connected to your voicemail.
Enter your personal password using the number keys. A password will have been chosen for you when you set up your Verizon phone. Enter that password when you are prompted by the recording.
Listen to any new or saved messages on your voicemail account.
Use shortcut keys to delete or change voicemail messages. Press "1" to replay the message, "7" to delete it and "9" to save the message in a folder for later listening.
Tips & Warnings
- You can change the settings in your voicemail by listening to all of the messages and waiting to be taken to the voicemail main menu.
