    OK....I just paid $10 to your customer service experts for a solution to my problem.....sadly my phone has no ID on it other that 5.8 and your system doesn't understand that....I paid you $10 for some kind of a solution and I didn't get one....not a good deal in my mind - Don Osterhout.

    How to check voicemail is totally dependent on your phone service provider.For example, I use Vonage and I dial *123 to get into my mailbox. Your best bet is to check the website of your phone service provider or call them - there should be a contact # on your bill.................


    However,




    push and hold down 1 untill it says call voicemail it should go straight there







    Thnx.
