    Just got FiOS. After 2 nightmarish days of 'botched installation & 1/3service" I thought everything was up & running. However, when I try to access my mailbox to retrieve messages, guess what? My number is not in service & the thing hangs up on me when I input my passcode. Although how is my number not in service...I can get phone calls?

How can I delete recieved voicemails?

You dial into your cell phone provider's voice mail access number, enter your password and then delete. For Verizon you would hit 7 once the voice starts playing.

Change voice mail message from one person to another person

Step 1 Lift the handset for your telephone and listen for the dial tone. Dial the access code you were given by Verizon when you signed up for residential telephone service. Dialing the access code will call the voicemail system. If you do not have an access code, you will need to call Verizon Customer Servicemag-glass_10x10.gif (see link in Resources).
  • Step 2 Identify the telephone number you are setting up voicemail services for. If you are calling from that telephone number, enter the temporary passcode and then press "#." The temporary passcode is the last 4 digits of your residential telephone number. If you are calling from a different phone, press "*" when the system greeting starts to play, then enter the 10-digit telephone number when prompted. After this, you will be asked to input the temporary passcode.
  • Step 3 Choose a new passcode. The passcode must be from 4 to 8 digits in length. It should be easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess. Do not use easy to guess numbers, such as 1234 or 1111. Also do not re-enter the same temporary passcode, since it will be easy for anyone to guess.
  • Step 4 Record your name. Simply say your name, without a long complicated message. This recording is used by the voicemail system to identify you whenever you forward a message to another user. It is not used as the standard greeting when a caller is directed to your voicemail to leave a message.
  • Step 5 Record or change your personal greeting. This greeting is played any time someone reaches your voicemail box. Record a friendly greeting to announce that you are unavailable and will return all calls upon your return.
    Decide if you want to set up a different mailbox for each family member. Verizon residential telephone service allows you to set up multiple mailboxes so that everyone can have his own private message center. Callers who reach voicemail will be prompted to press "1" to leave a message for one person, press "2" for the next person, and so on.
  • Step 6 Hang up the telephone. When you have finished setting up the voicemail system on your Verizon residential phone line, hang up the phone to end the call and exit the voicemail system.

    RCA Model 25204 2 line speakerphone corded with call waiting caller ID

    As bsmither said, how voice mail is accessed is very dependent on your phone company and how they've set things up. They would be the best place to ask about any problems you're having there.

    As for programming the voice mail buttons on the 25204, I was confused by that one as well until I finally figured it out. Specializations aside, they're just speed dial buttons, and are programmed in exactly the same way as the ones along the right side of the phone. RCA could have documented that detail better than they did.

    In my case, with Vonage, I just programmed the buttons with the numbers for the lines that they're associated with. When they dial and I'm connected to the voice mail system, I'm prompted for my VM password, which I then enter manually.

    Usually the voicemail number is set automatically by the service provider so that the general user wont have to. Sorry but I do not think you'll be able to, but I will keep my eyes open for a unlock code for it. Hope this helps!
