Say your expecting an important call but then your phone dies. Or worse still, you lose it. How can you check your voicemail to make sure you can check if that call came through? Don’t panic, it’s actually pretty easy, here’s how.

I. Check Your Voicemail

1. Using someone else’s phone, call your own phone number.

2. When it goes to voicemail, push the * key on the keypad during the voicemail greeting.

3. You’ll be prompted for your voicemail pin code, enter it and then press the # button.

4. After that it will begin telling you about your new messages if you have any.

    Just be sure to delete your number from their call log so as not to give away your pin.

    What if i forgot the password in my phone is dead in i need to check it asap

    • You won’t be able to check it without your password (if that were the case anyone could check your voicemail).

        Is there anyway around it if i trun my phone back on

        • It depends. Some carriers force you to input your password even when you can from your own phone. You’ll have to just try (or try and remember it). Hope it works!

    where do i find my pin because i don’t remember and i need to check it.

    • Unfortunately you’ll have to call your carrier to reset it.

    I have a broken Nexus5phone I keep trying to get my voicemail messages from another phone and I can’t get them. I call&during the message I press the *but it says my voicemail box is full&hangs up on me. How can I get my messages?

    • Contact your carrier and ask them. They might have blocked this method.
