Voicemail FAQs

Basic Voicemail is included in your plan. Learn the ins and outs of voicemail, including:

General Information
  1. What is voicemail?

    Voicemail takes a caller's message when you can't answer the phone. You will receive a message-waiting indicator to let you know that a message has been left for you. Basic Voicemail includes:

    • Up to 20 stored messages
    • Up to a 3-minute recording per message

    We also offer Visual Voicemail. Visit our Voicemail Comparison chart to compare Basic and Visual Voicemail.



  2. How much does voicemail cost?

    Basic Voicemail is free and it's automatically included with your plan. You just need to set it up when you activate your service.

    We also offer Visual Voicemail for a low monthly fee. Visit our Voicemail Comparison chart to compare Basic and Visual Voicemail.



  3. How do I know my voicemail is secure?

    The privacy of customer information is important to us, including the voicemail services we offer. That’s one of the reasons you'll always need a password to access a Verizon Wireless voicemail account. You need it from the first time the account is activated, and then every time, and from any phone, including your own mobile phone. There's no default PIN, and hackers would have to guess or steal the password to access your voicemail.

    Remember, you can help keep the information on your phone safe by choosing a strong password for voicemail and other accounts. Stay away from common number sequences or things like birthdays or street addresses. Pick random sequences of numbers and change your passwords frequently.



Using Voicemail
  1. How do I set up my voicemail?

    To set up your voicemail using your phone:

    1. Enter *VM (*86).
    2. Tap the Call button.
    3. Follow the setup tutorial, which will walk you through selecting a password and recording both a voice signature and greeting for your voice mailbox.

      Note: If you hear your own or a system greeting, you've already set up your voicemail. Tap the # button to interrupt the greeting and follow the prompts to enter your password and retrieve your messages.

    Voicemail may not be available in some areas. Your Verizon Wireless voice mailbox is not password protected until you create a password by following the steps listed above. Mobile to Mobile calling minutes do not apply to voicemail retrievals. Airtime usage applies to calls to your voice mailbox from your Verizon Wireless phone.

     



  2. How do I check my voicemail to retrieve messages?

    To check your voicemail:

    1. Enter *VM (*86) on your phone.
    2. Tap the Call button. 
    3. Follow the prompts to enter your password and retrieve your messages.

      Note: If you hear your own or a system greeting, tap the # key to interrupt the greeting and follow the prompts to enter your password and retrieve your messages.

    Airtime usage applies for voicemail setup and retrieval in most areas. Mobile to Mobile calling minutes don't apply to voicemail retrievals; you'll be charged to maintain your connection to voicemail. Verizon Wireless is not liable for missed messages, or deletions of messages from your voice mailbox, even if you have saved them.



  3. Is there a way to access my voicemail messages without having to enter my password each time?

    Yes, you can reformat the voicemail number on your phone to automatically include two pauses and your password. Once you've made this change, you won't have to enter your password to listen to your voicemail messages.



  4. How do I check my voicemail if I'm not using my mobile phone or if I'm outside the service area?

    To check your voice mailbox outside the Verizon Wireless network or from any phone:

    1. Call your 10-digit mobile phone number.
    2. Tap # to interrupt your greeting.
    3. Enter your password and tap #.


  5. When I call another Verizon Wireless subscriber and get their voicemail, is there a way that I can skip right to the beep to leave my message faster?

    Yes, when you call most Verizon Wireless subscribers, tap the * button when you hear their message begin to play, and then leave your message.



  6. Are there time saving tips for checking my voicemail?

    Yes. See the time saving tips charts below.

    While listening to a message, tap:

     1 = Rewind   6 = Faster 
     1 - 1 =  Rewind to beginning of message  7 = Delete Message
     2 = Pause   9 = Save Message 
     3 = Fast Forward   * = Cancel/Exit 
     3- 3 = Fast Forward to end of message   0 = Help 
     4 = Slower   # = Finish/Skip
     5 = Envelope Info (date/time message was sent)   


    After listening to a message, tap:

     6 = Forward**   9 = Save
     7 = Delete  0 = Help
     8 = Reply**  


    **Forward / Reply only works with other Verizon Wireless voicemail subscribers in your own area.



Voicemail Archival
  1. Can I retrieve deleted voicemail messages?

    No, once a voicemail has been erased, the message is permanently deleted from the voicemail network.



  2. Can I have a permanent copy made of a voicemail message?

    Yes, permanent copies of your voicemail messages can be made through CBW Productions, Inc. for a minimal fee. Visit CBW Productions and select the format you wish to use for your message archive.

    Note: This isn't a Verizon Wireless service. Before any voicemail messages can be copied, you must register with CBW Productions.

    To have a copy of your message(s) made, you'll be asked to provide CBW Productions, Inc. with your mobile phone number and voicemail password so they can access your mailbox. The message(s) you wish to have copied MUST still be present in your voice mailbox. If a message has already been deleted, it can't be retrieved or copied. Your voicemail messages can't be enhanced; therefore, any copies will be exactly what you hear in your mailbox; if the message that was left for you is garbled, the copy of the message will be as well. This archival service is not available for text and multimedia messages. CBW also provides Notary services for voicemail messages that are being archived.



  3. How much does it cost to have a message copied?

    Refer to the CBW Productions website for more information.



  4. In what format can I get my saved voicemail messages?

    CBW Productions has 3 options to choose from for recording your voice messages:

    • Digital MP3 files delivered by email
    • CD
    • Cassette


Troubleshooting
  1. Why isn't my voicemail message indicator working?

    Your message indicator won't work if you're outside our network or if your message indicator is turned off. To verify that your voicemail message indicator is on:

    1. Enter *VM (*86) on your phone.
    2. Tap the Call button.
    3. From the Main Menu, tap 4 for Personal Options.
    4. Tap 1 for Message Waiting Indicator On/Off.

    You've successfully turned on your message waiting indicator.



  2. If I forget my voicemail password, can I reset it?

    Yes, you can reset your voicemail password.

    • In My Verizon:
    1. Go to the Manage voicemail password page in My Verizon.

      From there, you can choose to create your own password or have the system choose a password for you.

    2. Select the line you wish to change the password for from the dropdown list.

    3. If you're creating your own password enter it in the Create New Password and Confirm New Password fields.

    4. Click Submit.
    • From your mobile phone:
    1. Call *611 (airtime-free) to reach the automated Customer Service menu.

    2. Tap 2 to reset your voicemail password.

    3. Tap 1 when prompted for the password reset menu.

    4. You'll be asked to enter your 5-digit billing ZIP code. Follow the prompts for security verification and resetting the password.

      For prepaid accounts:
      Call *611 from your mobile phone (airtime-free) to reach Customer Service. You can also reach us by calling (866) 837-3387 (toll-free) from any phone.

    Note: Your voice mailbox is not password protected until you create a password by following the steps listed above.



Visual Voicemail
  1. What's the difference between the voice mail products offered by Verizon Wireless?

    To compare voicemail services, please see the Voicemail Comparison chart.



  2. How do I sign up for Visual Voicemail?

    You can add the feature through the Products & Apps page in My Verizon.

    Notes:

    • Visual Voicemail isn't available for prepaid plans.
    • Not all phones are compatible with Visual Voicemail.
    • Once you add Visual Voicemail, everything already existing in your voice mailbox will automatically be converted.


  3. What happens to my messages when I upgrade from Basic to Visual Voicemail?

    All existing messages will be transferred to your new Visual Voice Mailbox.



  4. What happens when I change from Visual Voicemail to Basic Voicemail?

    When changing from Visual Voicemail to Basic, all existing messages will be transferred. Your standard greetings will be saved but you will lose custom greetings.
