How can I delete voicemails that I do not wish to open or listen to? Is that possible? I have a AT&T Samsung BlackJack. I hate having to open a voicemail that I already know is junk before I'm able to delete it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Delete voice mail by going through the keypad on your cell phone. The actual procedure depends on the kind of cell phone that you own. For example, on the Nokia 1100, hold down the "1" key while you are on standby. Tracfone connects you to your voicemail, where you can follow spoken menu instructions to listen to your voicemail. After you hear the voice message, you're asked if you want to delete your recordings.
This is not recommended, because connecting in this way uses up your minutes even if you just want to listen to them.
Use your landline phone to delete messages if you want to avoid using your Tracfone minutes. Turn off your cell phone so it doesn't ring and then call your cell phone number from a landline.
Press the "*" (star) key as soon as you hear your voice mail greeting. Then enter your password number and press the "#" (pound) key.
Listen to the instructions for accessing your voice mail, which can vary slightly depending on the phone you have. You are told the number of new and old messages you have, how to listen to them and how to store or delete them. Press the number for listening to the message to hear it, and then the number for deleting.
Hi again Linda. Great, now we have a real question :>)
The voicemail capability is nothing to do with your Samsung phone (I hope you liked that picture), it is powered by your cellphone carrier, Sprint, AT&T or Fido (my carrier). What you need to do is this. Access your voicemail, on my iphone it is from the 'make a phone call' app, and then the VoiceMail button. The recorded message gives you options. One of those is 'Listen to Voicemail'. when you listen to your messages you will be prompted to delete or save the message. With mine you press 9 to Delete.
If none of that helps, you need to contact your cellphone carrier.
Your inbox may be full. Delete old messages once you've listened to them to keep free space in your voicemail inbox. Otherwise you may be accidentally deleting them yourself but I don't think this is the problem
Voicemail is a service from your telephone company and is nothing to do with the handset. Call your Voicemail number (123, something like that?) and listen to the instructions. Usually it's something like press 1 to listen to a message, 2 to save it and 3 to delete. You might have to spend some time going through all your messages and deleting them one by one. Alternatively, call your customer services and ask them if there is a quicker way to erase ALL your voicemails?
Possibly you have voicemail feature enabled from your service provider. Call service provider and have voicemail disabled or forwarding to voicemail disabled. Your service provider can give information on retrieving and deleting voicemail messages.
have you tried calling your voicemail inbox and deleting it there? normaly a voice mail is not saved on your phone, but at your provider. so you have to call your mailbox as if you want to listen to your voicemails, and there you can choose to hear, to save or to delete it.
SOME WORKAROUNDs - which MAY NOT WORK for everyone!
while ensuring that the TBB line is ON HOOK - NOT OFF HOOK:
1) LISTEN to your NEW VM through the Portal. If you listen through Email forwarding - this will NOT cancel the flashing VMWI.
2) Access your TBB VoiceMail from another phone (cell) or through RemotePhone. LISTEN to your NEW VM from there.
The flashing VMWI should be OFF and back to normal operation! You need to repeat the above steps for any NEW VM.
•You need to have at least one NEW VM that you have not listened to for the above to work. So if there are no NEW VM, phone your TBB line and create one. Then LISTEN to it from the Remote Phone/ cell phone, or delete it from the Portal, and the light should go off.
•Note that listening to or deleting OLD VM (whether in CURRENT or SAVED folders) will do nothing!
I've had the same problem as well. I made sure no messages were there, then called and left myself a message from another phone. I went in and listened to the message and waited till the option to delete came on and for the indication there were no more messages. Icon was gone.
If you don't want to waste minutes listening to vm:
Just call your cell phone and let it go to voicemail. When the voicemessage comes up click the pound sign. It will ask you to enter your password, then you can listen to and erase voicemail for free.
