By Dawn Gibbs

The BlackBerry Bold is a smartphone that allows you to instantly access the Internet and your e-mail accounts. When you purchase a new BlackBerry Bold, you need to set up your voicemail. Activating your voicemail only takes a few seconds, and you can do it directly from the device.

Step 1

Press and hold the "1" key until the phone connects you to your voicemail system. The "1" key is also the "W" key.

Step 2

Listen for the prompts from the automated setup system. It will ask you to enter a password. Select your password by entering it on the keyboard, then press the pound sign.

Step 3

Wait for the prompt to select a greeting. Press 2 to record your own voicemail message. Wait for the tone, speak your message, then press the pound sign to confirm it.

Step 4

Wait for the automated system to explain your voicemail features, then press 2 to confirm your selections. Exit your voicemail by pressing the star key.
