    Angry Default voice mail password?

    Grrrr. I went to set up the voice mail on my new LG phone, following the directions on the website, and it rejected the 9999 initial password. So I submitted a case to tech support via the website, and nothing happened for 4 days. So I called tech support, they escalated the case, and responded that they had reset the voice mail box. Guess what? 9999 doesn't work, not does 1111, 0000, 1234, the last 4 digits of my phone number, or blank. Any good ideas for other numbers to try while I'm waiting for tech support to ignore the new case I submitted?

    Did you try pushing * and then the code?

    If the underlying carrier is Verizon (assuming your LG is a CDMA phone) and you received a new phone number, when you call voicemail the first time from the phone (*86), it will prompt you to set it up, during this process, you will be prompted to key in a password.

    Yah, I hit * (otherwise I don't get a password prompt), the underlying carrier is US Cellular, and I didn't get prompted to set it up either the first time I called or after Tracfone supposedly did a voice mail reset.

    Finally figured it out, no thanks to Tracfone, who twice reset my voice mail and then referred me to their online instructions.

    Problem being, their online instructions aren't quite right. They're right for a phone activated on U.S. Cellular as the underlying carrier with a Chicago area zip code, but they're not right for a phone activated on U.S. Cellular as the underlying carrier with a Maine zip code. Once I figured that out, it was easy as 1-2-3.
