I reactivated voice mail after discovering that it's free to check from a landline (see FAQ #15a). Just turn off your cell phone, call your cell phone, then press # when you hear your message (it will of course prompt you for your password).
This does not appear to work for me with a US Speakout service. When I call my own number from a landline (with cell off), I get my standard voice mail msg, but pressing # does not appear to have any effect. It behaves as though I am leaving a new msg. Anbody with US service have any suggestions?
Are you pushing # during your greeting, or waiting until it's finished (too late)?
