How to access Voice Mail / Messages without entering password

I don't know how many of you know this but you can do the following and your phone will automatically enter your password when you retrieve your voice messages.

 

1. Click on CALL button (green button)
2. Press BB button (Blackberry button)
3. Scroll and click on OPTIONS
4. Click on VOICE MAIL
5. Under "Password", enter two pauses by pressing BB button twice
6. Now type in your 4 digit password after the pauses.
7. It should look like PP1234 under "Password"

So now on, when you press and hold down 1, it will call your voicemail and will pause automatically and enters your password for you automatically.

If this info helped, please click on my Kudos. Thanks.

Re: How to access Voice Mail / Messages without entering password

I cannot get the Pauses

 

When I push BB button twice it takes me back to "options"

Rather than pushing the BB key twice, push it once and select "Add Pause".

Re: How to access Voice Mail / Messages without entering password

thats what i was planning on being able to do as well.  i dont know if mines different or if im just not following.  ive done this on other phones

 

Options>voice mail

Phone number: ########

Password:

 

when im at this screen and under the password heading and i push the bb button, my only options are paste, save, hide keyborad, switch app, and close

 

i also tried doing this under contacts and just changing my voice mail number to my phone number + pp + password but doesnt work when i hold one either

Re: How to access Voice Mail / Messages without entering password

Oh my that is odd! Mine shows:

 

Select

Clear Field

Call Voice Mail

Add Wait

Add Pause

Save

Hide Keyboard

Switch Application

Close

It may be that your carrier has overridden in your OS...but that would seem quite strange for them to do in this particular field. Try doing a batt-pull reboot and see if it's just the OS getting hosed due to memory leaks and such.

Re: How to access Voice Mail / Messages without entering password

Had the same problem, so I went ahead and entered my password, then checked the BB button again and all the options were there.

 

Went back to the begining of the password and entered the pauses. All is well now.
