How to Set Up a TracFone Voice Mail

While using a prepaid cell phone service may mean forgoing certain luxuries, TracFone customers never have to be without voice mail service. Provided you have purchased a digital TracFone handset, you can set up a voice mail account from the provider's website. Doing so ensures that you never have to miss out on important messages just because you can't answer your prepaid TracFone.
