lolligag: hey i got my moms old phone how do i change the voice mail?
nergalk: hey man, thank you for providing this instructional. The documentation that comes with the phone is horribly lacking in information. Well, THIS problem now solved. Now to figure out how to stop butt-dialing the police all the time!
bestprep11: Only when you check it. You can even check it from a separate landline to avoid using your minutes at all.
ladyb8692: Hi bestprep11, just wanted to know if my minutes are used when voicemail picks up or is it only when i check it ? I don't want to waste minutes on wrong number callers or long messages. Thank you
Flashdongtwo: Thank you for your advice. I will look into this way of solving my situation. Have a great Day.
bestprep11: I'm afraid you are going to have to call TF to ask them to reset your password. My advice is to do so from a landline or borrow a cellphone from someone who has an unlimited minutes plan and call. It shouldn't take 45 minutes unless you call at peak times and are put on hold. Resetting your voicemail may end up deleting existing messages.
Flashdongtwo: Hi, I need helpI have TF samung 404g. I can not remember the password to check my voice mail How do I get or change this option.PLEASE! PLEASE! don't tell me to call tracfone.It will cost me 45 mins. of my phone time and I will never get an answer.Seriously can anyone help me? TY
HotHetroman2011: How to change how long a tracphone lg800g phone rings before it goes to voicemail?
Shugo489: Hey dude, I couldn't find anyway to enter the Voicemail settings on my tracfone from another phone. Pressing both * and # while on the voicemail just told me didn't work.
hobot22: Please answer by PM??
hobot22: Do I need an active signal to get a text msg? Is it retrievable?
hobot22: I have a Text Message Center box with a phone number in it. Whats it for?
Will an incoming Voice mail appear as such in the in-box? or do I have to
call just to know that much?
hobot22: I hv safelink tracfone.Plan One. First time cell fone user. Customer svc gave me wrong info. They said I hd 2 use a land line 4 VM set up.My LG325G seems just like ur Samsung. The minutes that "roll over for 60 consecutive days", do they expire then?
On the service term date or at the end of the month??
hobot22: I tried to post but it wd not do. I sent you a pm . Your vid helped me.
bestprep11: I think you can wait for the menu and choose administrative options (3 or 4 don't remember exactly) and change your greeting.
bestprep11: When you set up TF voicemail, the default setting is the shortened menu. You can go into administrative options and choose the extended menu which may allow you to do what you want (I'm not sure). If you're worried about using airtime, you can check your voicemail from a landline by dialing your cellphone and hitting * or # (can't remember which) to go into the voicemail menu.
nemoryer: Hello -- Do you know how to delete certain messages from my Voicemail Inbox without listening? Not all, but just certain messages WITHOUT LISTENING? Thanks.
Haley Jensen: Thanx man
cooldog60: Okay got this figured out, Thanks for the help.
cooldog60: The only time the phone rang was when tracfone called trying to sell me more minutes.
bestprep11: Not sure what you mean? You don't have to set up voicemail. If you don't then, if you don't answer a call, or if the phone is switched off, or if you're out of range, the caller hears a message that this user has not set up voicemail on their phone.
cooldog60: How do you get the phone to ring with out setting up voice mail?
RagingSqwuirrel: thats alot of button pushing just to set up a voicemail... eff tracfone
tornmask: WOW!..this economical Tracfone has a clear voice sound!..very nice!..thx "bestprep11" for the instruction! =0]
bestprep11: True, though people would like to get a proper manual, too.
shovelmarais: This is a nice way for some people to learn about their phones. Not everyone is into reading the longwinded pamphlets that come with all cellphones
