    PagePlus Voice Mail Features and Assistance

    Switched to PP recently from Tmobile and I cannot get the hang of the PP voice mail system.

    How do I turn off requests for my PIN each time I access the voice mail system?

    Also, how can you redial the number that left the voice mail?

    Is there a list of PP voice mail features and commands anywhere? (couldn't find one on PP's website)

    Thanks for the help!

    Thanks for the useful links; I did try to search but somehow missed that thread.

    I guess PP's voicemail is pretty basic compared to Tmobile. Seems like you cant redial the number that left you the voicemail or even tell which number left the particular message.

    Maybe PP will upgrade/enhance their voicemail system one day?

    Thanks again.

    If you hit 5 during a voicemail message's playback, it should tell you the number that dialed and left that particular message.

    Or you could just use a service like Youmail that has better functionality and text notifications when you miss calls (that even list the number that called).

    The PP dealer prepared voice mail command list link above seems to have an outdated command list. Many of the commands under administrative options no longer exist.

    Is there any way to remove the password entry requirement upon connecting to your voice mail?

    I can't delete my password through the administrative options (system forces you to acually enter a new password, just pressing "#" without entering a new password doesn't work). The voice mail system prompts for it EVERY time you check your voice mail. Very annoying if you don't need the security!

    You can set up conditional call forwarding and use Google Voice (set to do not disturb) or YouMail for voice mail. The customized messages for frequent callers is a nice feature on both services and GV gives free if not always accurate transcripts also.

    To avoid manually entering your password set up your speed dial to automatically send it as follows:

    *86ppXXXX

    *86 is the number to call

    pp = two pauses

    XXXX = your password

    Thanks very much for emailing PP re my question!! I gave up trying to call them ("all circuits busy" at worst and 45-minute hold times at best) and figured emailing them might be a waste of time , too. I greatly appreciate your help.

    This is the correct answer to automate the password entry.


    *86pXXXX#

    This works on an smt5800
    You password is "xxxx"
    Only one "p" needed and must have the pound sign at the end.

    How do I do an initial voicemail setup? It asks for my password, and I've tried 0000, 1234, the last four of my ph #, my old VZW password, and nothing works.
