I got this phone about a year ago; it's a replacement from Tracfone when that company upgraded its service in Kodiak from 2G to 3G.

Thanks much. Other than what I sent JustAnswer a few minutes ago, I'm not sure what more information you need to resolve this problem. Let me know.

Try holding down the 1 key, that should bring up your voicemail, then hit star.

if it still says error.. Then you need to call tracphone and have your voicemail provisioned..

I tied that. Twice. Both times I was told that my number can't be completed as dialed.... Frankly, I'm not optimistic that this model CAN access voicemail. I may well dump this damned thing.
