Introduction: Never Enter Your Pin for Your Voicemail

About: Who reads these?

Are you tired of having to enter your voice mail pin
every time you check your voice mail. Well I am so I have found a trick for that.

Step 1: Step 1

All phones are different but for me I go to messages then Msg settings. Now open Msg settings then go to Voice Mailbox # now open that.

Step 2: Step 2

It should look something like this. Add two 2-sec Pauses.
What these do is they pause for two seconds each.
Then enter your pin my pin is 1346
For Verizon users you have to enter the pound key after your pin is enterd
so put a pound after your pin.


When your done it should look like this.

Step 3: Step 3

Now lets test it by calling our voice mail.

If your successful it should enter your pin for you like in the video.

    So simple. This saves me the hassle of having to type my pin in every time. Good thinking.

    I can't get this to work on my phone, and I know I've probably done something wrong, but I don't know what.

    What kind of phone do you have?  On some phones the code is different Google the pause code for your phone.  The pause makes the number not do anything on my phone for 2 seconds.  Search for that code.

    I love this, I love this so much. For some reason, I am always walking when I check my voicemail, and this just made my life 50% easier. Awesome. I only had to use one pause.

    I'm sure there are going to be people who will say this isn't safe, I'm not one of them. However I think I'm going to try this it's a pain to have to do it all the time.
