How to Check Your Verizon Cell Phone Voice-Mail Messages From Another Phone

By Michael Koyan

Verizon Wireless allows you to check your cell phone's voice-mail messages from another phone as needed. This feature is convenient when you may be away from your cell phone or are in an area that does not allow your phone to get service. You can use any phone -- cellular or land line -- to check your Verizon voice-mail messages. Using another phone to access your voice-mail still allows you to listen to, save and delete messages as desired.

Step 1

Dial the full 10-digit number associated with your Verizon Wireless cell phone.

Step 2

Press the "#" key once your voice-mail greeting begins to play, before you are given an opportunity to leave a message.

Step 3

Enter your Verizon Wireless voice-mail password and press the "#" key to confirm your entry.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you forget your voice-mail password you can change it via the Verizon Wireless website. Log in to your My Verizon account and click on "More Actions" from the "Home" screen. Select "Change Voicemail Password" to create a new password or reset your old one. Your voice-mail password can also be changed by dialing "*611" from your Verizon Wireless cell phone and following the automated prompts.
  • Protect your Verizon voice-mail password, as anyone who knows it can access your voice-mail from another phone.
