    Talking alternative to verizons new voicemail charges uses m2m!!

    Since verizon is now charging now for voicemail retrieval there is an alternative to these charges. These would be there "backdoor" voicemail system. Meaning you call a backdoor number and enter your phone number and as usual you would check your voicemail. Even though this may be a longer process for some, its cheaper for all of you with unlimted M2M mins. You are calling a "verizon number" therefore it is billed as a M2M call. I have checked my mins and was billed as a M2M call so a new alternative. Hopefully verizon will not take this system away. I am located in the Bay Area of cali so this mayb differ from area.

    Heres a list a backdoor #'s

    Even calling my own cell phone number for VM has been billed as M2M/IN up to this point, but that does not mean it will continue. Verizon has said in our billing statements that VM will not use M2M/IN after April 1, no matter what number you call. It will be interesting to see if your suggestion works after the billing system change -- which is a nation-wide change according to my billing notes.

    Calling a "verizon number," as you said, does NOT automatically qualify for M2M/IN minutes. My landline home phone is with Verizon, but I don't get M2M/IN minutes when I call it. The Verizon VM systems are also landline, so I doubt this will work for long even if it is working for you now.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt this loophole (which may exist in some markets now) will stay open for long.

    Thanks for taking the time to post all that.

    If you're right, you're saving quite a few of us some serious minutes.

    not really a longer process if you save the number in your phone book with all the right pauses. the only risk is your VM password would be in the phone book, My current VM entry in my phone is *86ppXXXX# (were XXXX is my password) so the new entry might look like ' 1-917-952-6892pppYourNumberpppXXXX#' you just might have to do it a few time to get it right the pause time might be different from phone to phone (im using right now a Moto t720)


    "If a Cell phone rings and there is no one around to hear it? did it actually ring?" "Just check the missed calls list" :P

    I tried the South Seattle # but it didn't work (I live in Tacoma). Do you or anybody else know the # for the Tacoma area?

    Also, maybe a mod should make this a sticky as there are a lot of people coming on here asking for backdoor #s....

    Within Verizon Wireless Exchange

    I can understand that calling the fixed voice mail numbers might be akin to calling a landline, but the Boise voice mail access number:

    Boise ID (208) 866-9200 EAGLIDAACM1 Verizon Wireless

    Has the same exchange as my mobile number.

    So does Verizon distinguish its wireless numbers from its landline numbers by using the exchange, or is there some other method?

    Just wondering...

    The Charlotte, NC number is not valid. It went to a woman's voice mail message. I wonder how many calls she'll get as a result of this post.

    I tried both the Gilbert AZ, & the Phoenix AZ backdoor numbers. They both connect up to a voicemail server, but both gave me a message that my number is not recognized. Guess it doesn't work for me at least.

    thanks anyways...

    Did you enter 10 digit number? You need to enter the area code and the phone number.

    Good Luck
    Devilish

    Use the provider with the best coverage for you and your area not the provider with the best handset in your pocket.

    Good Luck
    I tried both #'s with & without entering my area code, & no luck both times...

    The Verizon number for Ukiah, CA, 707-367-6300, just gets a fast busy signal. It used to work, I guess it's another one they've disconnected.

    Can anybody confirm that it does use M2M minutes? I've been monitoring my #MIN usage, and it appears it bills as regular.

    Remember, since LNP, Verizon knows which numbers are M2M regardless of exchange.
