This is not rocket science, yet I cannot access my voice mail.
I had set up my own "MESSAGES" number in the speed dial using some "p" pauses and the # sign.and at least I could access my VM and managed to change out the temp pwd for my own...yet when I try to use the built in VM, it will not work.
WHY..?? WTF am I doing wrong here.???
Don't use the Voicemail option for this. Instead, just program a new phonebook entry, where you'll be able to add all of your pauses, etc. By the way, you can use the menu key to insert pauses or waits, but I believe you can also use ',' for pause, and '!' for wait.
At any rate, don't use the voicemail option. But once you program in your new phonebook entry, use the speed dial keys to assign that entry to the key you use for voicemail. On the 8800, it's usually the "1" key, which corresponds to the 'W' on the QWERTY keyboard.
