Replying to:  Deleting Voicemail from a landline by veegee2   Jul 31, 2007, 1:28 PM

Re: Deleting Voicemail from a landline

I found the answer to my own question! It is in the "Personal Options Menu" that can be accessed after all of the voicemail messages are played. There are two options here; 1. "Automatic Playback", which is apparently the default setting and "Normal Playback". When I selected "Normal Playback" I then got the option to Replay, Save, or Delete the message after it was played.
No one at Tracfone mentioned this in the many emails we exchanged or in the 30 minute phone call to a Customer Care Representative.

In fact, there is no mention on their website that you can use a landline phone to listen to your Voicemail Messages. You just dial your cell phone number (making sure your cellphone is turned off) and when you hear your greeting you hit the # key. You will then be asked to enter your Security Code and then your Voicemail Messages will start playing.

Of course Tracfone wants you to use your cell phone to listen to your voicemail so that you will use up your minutes faster.
