I have Verizon, so in the Access Number field, I entered *86, and in the Additional Numbers field I simply entered #xxxx# .
(x = my four-digit numerical password).
No pause codes (like a P for pause) were necessary.
As another option, I added my voicemail as a contact and included hard pauses in between the *86, #, and VM password. It works very well.
