How to set up voicemail on my LG phone

If I hold down the number 1, it says it is calling voice mail and shows my number and then hangs up automatically before anything happens.

Anyone have any ideas?

I have no idea why the user manual does not give instructions on setting up vm on this phone.

Just press 1 and enter the temporary PIN given to you by MetroPCS, which should be 9999. Then set your personal PIN.

From there follow the prompts and set-up your greeting and you are all set.

    I have the same problem. My (LG slide no touch screen) phone tells me I have pressed an incorrect number and then hangs up. This only happens after I call 1 and it tells me to hear you mail box promt in English press 1 so I press 1 and then I merge calls and then it make weird noses and hangs up. So i searched it. Some website told me to put the area code in. So I did--same thing happened "I have pressed an incorrect number" and then hangs up. So I did what you told me to do-- "I have pressed an incorrect number" and then hangs up. What do I do? I attached a photo I took of my phone so you know what it looks like. Thank you I hope you can help. :P

    I have an LG flip phone from Wal-Mart. I'm trying to figure out how to set up my voice mail, can you please advise.

    Call your own phone number while you are on the phone. The menu prompt should ask you if you would like to set it up. This will only work from the phone you are trying to set it up for. If the voicemail service sees you are calling from a different number it will just say your voicemail is not setup call again and hang up.

    How do you set up voicemail on an lg town gt350

    Thanks for visiting FixYa!

    Although you didn't include in your question who your cellular service provider is, for most cell phones, once the phone has been activated and you can make and receive calls, you can then set up your voice mail.

    Most phones access voice mail accounts the same way, by pressing and holding the 1 (one) button on the phone. The first time you access your voice mail account you'll need to follow the voice prompts to choose a password and greeting.

    AT&T has a web page with easy to follow instructions. They may be the same for your carrier.
