D.R. Greenlaw: Thanks for posting this video! I've been using a Tracfone for over a year
but never bothered to set up the VM. (Mostly laziness but also because I
wasn't sure how.) Your video should help me get my VM up and running
Shoogymoogylover: Much thanks
bestprep11: @shovelmarais True, though people would like to get a proper manual, too.
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
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
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.

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

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

"bestprep11" for the instruction! =0]
Flashdongtwo: Thank you for your advice. I will look into this way of solving my
situation. Have a great Day.
cooldog60: @bestprep11 The only time the phone rang was when tracfone called trying to
sell me more minutes.
RagingSqwuirrel: thats alot of button pushing just to set up a voicemail... eff tracfone
hobot22: Please answer by PM??
bestprep11: Only when you check it. You can even check it from a separate landline to
avoid using your minutes at all.
cooldog60: @bestprep11 Okay got this figured out, Thanks for the help.
hobot22: Do I need an active signal to get a text msg? Is it retrievable?
HotHetroman2011: How to change how long a tracphone lg800g phone rings before it goes to
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?
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.
cooldog60: How do you get the phone to ring with out setting up voice mail?
nemoryer: Hello -- Do you know how to delete certain messages from my Voicemail Inbox
without listening? Not all, but just certain messages WITHOUT LISTENING?
lolligag: hey i got my moms old phone how do i change the voice mail?
Haley Jensen: Thanx man
bestprep11: @cooldog60 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.
