As a TracFone customer, you never want to miss a call, even if you can't answer every call. This is why it's a good idea to set up your voicemail ASAP. Luckily, TracFone makes it easy to set up voicemail by following a few simple steps.
Take the steps required to activate your cell phone before you can set up your voicemail. The activation process will depend on whether or not you're using a TracFone or your own phone. Each process has different steps. You can visit TracFone's activation page for directions on how to proceed with your TracFone device or your own device. There are specific instructions for each scenario.
Once your phone has been activated, place a call. Once you make an initial call, you can set up your voicemail, so use your cell phone to call your home phone or a friend, for example. Once you have finished placing the first call, you are ready to set up your voicemail.
How you connect to voicemail will depend upon the type of device you're using.
Customers with basic phones can simply tap the phone icon on the home screen, and press and hold "1" on the dial pad.
However, there will be specific instructions for setting up your voicemail according to the type of device you have. For specific instructions, visit the TracFone website and navigate to the voicemail setup section. You'll need to locate your device's serial number to get started. iPhone users can find their serial number by selecting Settings and navigating to the About section. Android users can open their Settings and select the About Phone option to find the serial number. People without a smartphone can usually find the phone's serial number inside the phone near the battery compartment.
Enter your device's serial number, along with your phone number, to get specific instructions for setup. The instructions for your device will show you how to setup your voicemail by following the prompts on your device's screen.
If you need to reset your voicemail password at any time, you can do so by simply texting PASSWORD to 611611. If you have any questions or issues with your device or your TracFone account, you can always contact customer service.
