Checking voice mail on a Tracfone is very easy. Just make sure that your phone is charged so that the battery doesn't run out while attempting to check your voice mail. Also, ensure that you have adequate airtime minutes to dial in to get your messages.

In order to connect to your voice mail when dialling your number, make sure that your phone is charged and that you have at least a few minutes of airtime to complete the call. Checking your voice mail requires at least one minute of airtime to connect. If you have more than a few short voice mails to check, you may need more than a few minutes of airtime to hear them all.
Dial your number, and wait for the prompt to tell you to choose a number to listen to your voice mail. This is usually the number "1". Press "1" and listen to your messages. Again, make sure that you have at least a few minutes to call in for your messages. The call will be terminated if you have more messages than airtime. If you are uncertain how long listening to your messages will take, consider buying more minutes first, whether it be from a store, a set-up account for your phone or via the Tracfone website.
When you have finished listening to your messages, you have a variety of options. The basic options are deleting or saving a message. Listen to the prompts for which number saves or deletes. The number "7" is usually the delete option and "9" tends to be the number to save a message. Use the Save option if you don't want to listen to a message or if you need to save it to listen to it again later. After listening to your messages, you will have a few other options to consider beyond listening, saving and deleting as well. As mentioned, make sure that your phone has enough charge and enough airtime in order to proceed.
