How to Set Up Voice Mail on a BlackBerry

Setting up your voice mail account on your new BlackBerry only takes a few minutes. If you buy your BlackBerry in a store, the sales associate will set up the account for you. However, if you purchase your BlackBerry online, you will need to set up the voice mail manually when the phone arrives. Activating the voice mail, setting up the password and recording a greeting can be done in a few easy steps.
