LG600G tracfone voicemail problems

My new phone is working fine except I can not get into my voicemail. It is set up right because I've called my phone from another phone and left a voicemail, but when I go into voicemail all I get is ''retrival of deleted messages service'' where it promps me to push # 2 to continue but it will not acknowlege that I've pushed #2. I have talked to someone at tracfone for an hour without them knowing what my problem is or how to correct it. Does anyone have any suggestions for correcting my problem? PLEASE...

    thanks for your timely response. I have held down # 1 and went to voicemail but all I get is the "retrival of deleted messages service" as I stated. So, now what? Sure could use some help with this simple problem! thanks so much.

My recently purchased LG600G (Target $30) immediately started receiving unwanted calls that forced me to figure out voicemail. Well, when I say "immediate", I mean once I struggled through the activation process! Turns out I wasn't pressing, and holding, one of the keys. The first of many firmware issues, read on.

Ironically, the phone is not by default setup to use the keypad for entering responses and I needed to enable DTMF tones. 9 Settings, 5 Call, 7 Send DTMF Tones. (btw, p.62 of the manual lists menu options 9.5.8 which is wrong). Select 1 then set.

I was then able to check my voicemail but my phone still doesn't actually let me hear the DTMF tones. I also have to hold the keys down longer than other phones; it doesn't like flying fingers.

Usually I check voicemail using a land line (or my wife's free work cell!). My local number is not my area code. For AT&T the requested mailbox is the cell number, followed by the 4-digit passcode.

Hope this helps somebody,

Call Tracfone and get them to reset your voicemail, wait 4-6 hours and reset up the voicemail. On a new LG600, the icon for voicemail does not work and the people at Tracfone had no idea how to repair it but it took 2 hours of time to get to the we can't fix it part and open a ticket for further more thorough testing. I like my little cheap tracfone I got at Wallmart as it works perfectly. It doesn't take pictures but I have a camera for that. It only has a few basic rings but do I need the complicated stuff?

How do I access my voicemail from another phone?

To call your Voice Mail from a landline phone:
1. Call your TracFone from a landline phone.
2. When your voicemail begins, press the star key on your landline phone immediately.
3. Enter the PIN you use to check your Voice Mail from your TracFone. When you have finished entering your PIN, press the pound key.
4. Listen to the instructions. They will tell you how many voicemail messages you have and give you options for checking them, deleting them, saving them or storing them as new messages. Phones may vary, so listen carefully to the options.

if you havent created a pass code try 9999, if that doesnt work give tracfone a call.

Tracfone LG 3100 handset. All calls go directly

I had the same problem with my LG100C. The tech support at Tracfone said that the person calling you must dial your area code too. Seems silly, but it worked for me.

My lg600g does not prompt me to set up voice mail when I call it. It just says to get to your mailbox press star, or to leave a message type the number now. I've done both to see if it was setup already,...

I had the same problem with my LG 600G. The problem was the preprogramed voice mail # on the phone might be incorrect. You will need to call Tracfone and get the correct # for your area.

What they did is added you the most feasable network cluster, its not your phone .. its the connectivity on your phone through the TSP (service provider).

NET10 sells me LG600G cell phone w/ useless users manual

I had this problem with my son's LG 600 that we purchased from Tracfone. When the time changed, it didn't change on his phone.


Turn the phone off for a few minutes and then power it back up. The correct time should be displayed.

I think the reason you can't change the time yourself on the tracrfone model is because it is automatically downloaded to your phone from their satellite. However satellite downloads can't be performed while the phone is turned on, since it might disrupt whatever you might be doing at the time.

Net10 is an affiliate of Tracfone, and this probably applies to their phones also.

So power down the phone for a few minutes, then power up, and the time should reset automatically.

Hope this helps somebody.
