How do I set up voicemail

Usually, all you have to do is call your cell phone number and then you will be prompted to set up your voicemail out-going message, etc

If you are unsure, the best thing to do is, on a secondary phone that is not your cell phone that you want to set up the voicemail, call your cellular service customer support number. This number might be on your cellular bill. They can help walk you through setting it up step by step since each type of phone and phone service is different.

Voicemail number changed on samsung galaxy and can not check voicemail now

Voice mails are set up from the phone company. Your phone has no control over the voice mailing service other than assigning a speed dial to it. You should call your phone company on their customer service number and they will tell your the number to call for setting up your voice mail box.

How to increase ring duration

First of all you need to know the number you dial for voicemail. Make a note of this.
Then, go to the dialpad and dial:
and press Call.
A box will popup telling you what the redirect to voicemail delay is. On my handset the default was 15 seconds.
Now, dial:
and press Call
where *** is your voicemail number and SECS is the number of seconds you want it to ring for before diverting. For example, on Vodafone UK the voicemail number is 121 so to set the ring for 30 seconds before diverting, dial:
Once the box has come up saying it was successful you can use *#61# again to check the setting.

What does center address mean in setting up voicemail

The voicemail number is predetermined by the service provider and may differ from your actual mobile number. When setting up your voicemail, you are only required to press and hold the #1 key until you are connected to voicemail. When you are setting up your voicemail, the only number that you should be required to input, would be your password that enables you to access your mailbox remotely/from another phone, to listen to your messages.

Get invalid number when I call voicemail


There are specific numbers for Voice mail. The number that's usually added to your cell phone might not be the updated voice mail number for your cellphone.

In order to activate this service, you need to call your service provider. They would activate the settings from their end and they will let you know how to change and set the specific voice mail number for you.

Razr v3 setting up voice mail

Which mobile service carrier do you use? Are you trying to setup voicemail to play your messages on your phone, or are you trying to setup greetings and what not inside of the voicemail?

Your voicemail settings depend on where you live, and there are hundreds of different access numbers. If you are trying to setup the phone to connect to voicemail and are on Cingular/AT&T, call them at 800-331-0500 from a different phone and they can walk you through the setup easily since they have access to the appropriate voicemail access number for your location.
