    Default Is there a way to turn off Voicemail password?

    Can I set it up so I dont have to input my password everytime I want to hear a voicemail?

    thanks

    Just add your password like mentioned above, & you will not have to enter it again when checking your voicemail. But if someone gets a hold of your phone they will also be able to listen to al of your voicemail. Use it with caution.

    Click your green phone button > Menu > Options > Voice Mail
    You will see the top line for your phone number and the next line for your password. Enter those two numbers and when you call your voicemail it will automatically pause and dial your password.

    To assign your voicemail a speed dial, go to your address book and start typing in voicemail. When it comes up, click on it, scroll down to the phone number and click your track ball to bring up the menu. On the menu scroll down til you see add speed dial > click on that and assign it whatever key you want, mine is W.

    Now every time you hold down the W key, your BB will call your voice mail and dial your password, automatically

    I did it a more manual way. My Voicemail is set as a speed dial that will dial *86PPP(password)#11. This dials VM, pauses 7-seconds, enters the password and starts playing the messages automatically.

    Ihave a blackberry 8330 with verizon, every time I go into my vmail it tells me my password is incorrect. I always have to dial it at least 2 times to get in. Is anyone else having the same problem? For all of the smart rumps....Yes I know my password, and I'm sure I am putting in the same answer twice.

    My BB would dial the password fine but I couldn’t get my cars Bluetooth to dial it. I went with YouMail , it lets you turn off the password. Just an option

    Adding a # after your 4 digit password will eliminate the pause before you are connected to the voicemail.

    This thread explains it:

    There has to be some trick to this- i have tried with the # without the #, pause, no pause- this is not working for me.

    I thought it was pretty straight forward. Can you be as specific as possible as to where the hang up is?

    Good answer, however, here's the dumbed down version:

    1. Hit send
    2. Once in call log, hit your blackberry button once and scroll to options
    3. Under options, hit voicemail.
    4. Where it says password, put your pin.
    5. Dial your voicemail, and you're good to go!

    Send > BBerry > Options > Voicemail > Enter VM Pass > Backout/save

    Enjoy!

    You should also check to see if the Verizon voicemail box setup has an option to skip the password if you're calling in from your own phone (if you call it from an landline, you'll still have to enter your password).

    With Telus, there's a way to enable this feature but you gotta drill through a few choices to get to it.

    It is basically the same. The trick is, after you enter your password, to access VM, press & hold "1"

    It will dial your phone, add an appropriate pause, then it runs your password. No fuss, no muss.

    I do it differently on my Alias 2:

    Contacts>'V'>Voicemail>View>Edit

    I keyed in *86P(for pause)9P9P9P9P9P9 where the "9s" are my default password. Now when I access my VM, either from Contacts or via the '1' key(speed dial), I get right into my VM with just a few beeps and no annoying automated voice.

    I think this will work on BBs too.
