Checking your voicemail on a Samsung cell phone can be done from the actual cell phone or from a land line. The Samsung automated voice mailbox system guides cell phone owners through the initial steps of setting up your voice mailbox, and continues to give directions on which keys to press to access messages each time you check your voicemail, making for convenient communication.


Checking Voicemail

Step 1

Cell Phone: Hold down the "1" key for 2 to 3 seconds to speed dial your voicemail. Another option is to manually dial "*86", followed by the send key to access your Samsung automated voicemail system.
