Question Voicemail access

Please Login to Remove!

I acquired a 7250 eight days ago. Not fully implemented yet. But, how can I access voicemail from another phone number? I see the "access number" but it was loaded with my cell phone number, and that works fine. But, if I am without my BB, how can I call voicemail to check messages? Have tried, but don't see the option to allow this. Thanks....Tim

Fully depends on your mobile operator. Check their website.

On my Verizon 7250, I can dial my cell phone number from any phone and press # when my voicemail message starts. It will ask you for your password and you can pick up messages or change options.

Thanks. I thought I tried the # sign already, but evidently not. It works from another phone. Thanks again.

How do I properly program a voicemail access + password character string,
such as *86 pause #numerals#? It doesn't seem to work on my new Verizon 7250.

Is there a way to program the device so it automatically dials the whole character string?

Default Found the answer!

Another poster (in an unrelated previous thread) advises to

Click on the PHONE icon, then click on OPTIONS, then click on VOICEMAIL, then enter your voicemail access number in the upper field labelled "Access Number", and in the lower field labelled "Additional Numbers" enter your password string.

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.
