How to retrieve a voice mail message on a Samsung mobile phone

Updated April 17, 2017

Checking the voicemail of your Samsung mobile phone is relatively simple. The same process applies to most cellular devices in general. The most important thing is, when you purchase your phone, set up your voicemail options and write them down so that you do not forget how to check your messages later on. There are two models of checking your voice messages that you can follow.

Speed dial voicemail

Set up your phone for an easy speed dial voicemail check. This means that when you first purchase your Samsung cell phone, you will need to program the voicemail to be checked by speed dial. Many phones, Samsung included, already come with this option, and the speed dial is the number "1." Hold down the "1" key until you hear the voicemail operator.

Enter your personalised passcode to enter your voicemail account. In setting up your phone, you have the option to forgo this passcode if you are accessing your voicemail from your cellular device. If you choose to keep the passcode, make sure to choose a number combination that you can remember. Depending on your service provider, this number could be anywhere from four to 10 digits.

Listen to your messages. You will have successfully accessed your voice mailbox at this point, and your automated voicemail operator will tell you how many new and saved messages you have. After listening, you will be given the options of saving, repeating or deleting your voicemail messages.

Call your Samsung mobile phone number. You will be directed to your phone's voicemail, where you will be given the option of checking your messages.

Enter your personalised passcode. Depending on your service provider, you may be asked to enter a pound or asterisk sign before entering your passcode, which you will be alerted of in creating your voicemail settings. You must have your passcode memorised or on hand, otherwise you will not be able to access your messages from another phone.

Listen to your messages. Once you have entered your passcode, you should be directed to your voicemail and the operator will tell you how many new and saved messages you have. Once you have listened to your messages, you will have the option to save, delete or replay your messages.
