Wink Auto Dialing w/Pauses, ones voice mail.??

Please Login to Remove!

OK: Called Bell this AM, got my temp PWD. Changed it as per directions. No problem.

Issue is this: On all other phones I have had, one can set up ones voice mail such that when you either speed dial or use an other method, gain access to messages without entering a lot of numbers etc. by the use of pauses and the # key within the dialed number. Typically: 1-(403-819-xxxx)#pxxxxp1 or 11 to get your messages. with p's being pauses and x's being numbers and numeric password.

I have tried on more than one occasion to get this Bell8830 figured out in that manner to no avail. When using the ROM voice mail # I keep getting my message and then whern the pwd goes it tells me "you are pressing an incorrect key". I also note that one seemingly cannot add pauses to this ROM voice mail.?

I even tried to make my own "Messages" and put it into speed dial to avoid using the generic one but I seem to lack the correct sequence...and tried many. I guess the bottom line is I don't need to be inputting data while using my voice mail...should be a 1 touch op...NO.?

I know this is basic stuff but any help would be greatly appreciated.

BTW: a Very Merry Christmas to all..!!

thank you,

Maybe I don't understand..... How are you adding pauses? Just bring up the menu and select Add Pause.

Try this--go to the Call Log screen then hit the menu button. Select "Options". Under Options, select "Voice Mail". Then type in your voice mail access number and password (I put a # sign after my password).
From this point on, I can use the menu button in Call Log or Messages and choose the option to "Call Voice Mail". The BB will then call your Voice Mail, followed by a three-second pause, then key in your password. There should be no reason to try to program pauses into the phone because BB takes care of it.

Default Thank you..

Bungy..that is exactly the information I was looking for..thanx,
I have been to that screen and inputted my pwd. However the # sign I added was after my number. I'll change that and see what happens.

Default Does not work...bummer

I Went to: Call Log/Options/Voice Mail.

In there I have used my phone no. as the access number. I have inputted as well my 4 digit numeric password.

I have tried putting a # sign in more than one place. Nothing seems to work. All I get when i try to retrieve my VM is my previously recorded message and the beep to leave a message as I would want others to do..!

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.???

I don't know about Bell, but under the options menu, you need to place their voicemail access number in that location. What is their voicemail access number?

the Built in VM will not work as far as i am concerned. One touch or otherwise.

So: I programmed my own:
1 (xxx) xxx-xxxx p#pppasspp11



Added it as "MESSAGES" in my speed dial and now use the P button in a one shot deal. This works.

....next...

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.
