Hear your Tracfone voice mail messages for free!

Did you know you can access your voice mail box from a land line and not use ANY air time minutes?
Yep! You have to set up a "password" which can be a 4 digit number and you can do that online.
Then just shut off your cell phone. Call your cell number from a land line. When you hear "leave a message" press the star key.

This activates your mail box and it asks for your password. Just press your 4 digit pass word number and you are into the main menu for your voice mail where you can do virtually anything you could with the cell but you aren't using any minutes!

Access LG 500g voicemail from landline

by Amelia
(Tallahassee FL)

I have an LG500G and can access my voicemail using a landline, so I don't have to use Tracfone minutes. I call the voicemail number, then press *, then follow the directions to access voicemail. You have to use the password you entered when you first set up voicemail. I can also leave a message if I choose. This works on the GSM/AT&T network here in the Tallahassee FL area.

Problem accessing by phone or landline

by mike
(RI)

My LG 800g phone is not letting me access my voice mail on my phone or by using the landline with the voicemail phone number. What is up with this and what to do?

--------------
Hi Mike,

You didn't give a lot of details here so I'm not sure how to help. Have you set up your voicemail on your LG 800g? It sounds like the answer to that is yes. Then, if you can't access it, something's gone wrong, and you need to contact customer support to reset it.

As for accessing it from a landline, instead of calling the voicemail number, you can call your own cell phone number and press * (star) when you hear the menu prompt.

PRESS # NOT *
by: Anonymous

Press the pound # key not the star * key. Then it will work and you can enter passcode digits.

I spent 30 minutes on hold with tracfone and they finally answered my call and said I couldn't access my voicemail from a landline. I thought that wasn't right. I read on here about using the # key and it worked!!! thank you!!

Get voicemail from land line
by: Anonymous

I just called Tracfone and was told you couldn't get messages from land line anymore. Still didn't give up and found the recent posts. "#" is the key now. No longer "*". Thanks all for your input.

"#" (pound key) and then pass code works for me to access my voicemail from the home phone. It used to be the "*" key.

Can't access voicemail from landline
by: Linda

I used to be able to listen to my voice mail from my landline by pressing the * key and then my code. That is not working now. I tried using the # key also. The message to leave a voice mail continues as if I pressed nothing. I even tried calling from a friends landline and No luck. I called Tracfone help twice and they were of NO HELP at all. Any suggestions?

# worked for me too
by: Anonymous

Good tip. I repeatedly tried accessing my vm from google voice with the * and it did not work (You have pressed an incorrect key). I tried the # and what do you know - it worked. I am in KY Moto E

LG800G
by: Nancy

Thanks Dan! I followed your instructions to access my VM box through the landline by pressing the * key + 4-digit code and was able to finish setting up the VM (which must have hiccupped during set-up)and disable the access code. It worked like a charm and allowed me to actually listen to the VM. Well done! :)

I discovered hitting the #, vs *, key too...
by: VoxS

Yep... It appears that the tracfone website instructions don't work for at least some of the phones. My LG L41C smartphone is one of the ones for which hitting * after dialing your cell from a landline results in a request to leave a message. Hitting # leads to a voice menu that prompts you to playback all your voicemails. Strange that it appears that * works on some, # on others... and only this forum seems to mention the # alternative.
