Wrong Voicemail Time Stamp

I live in New York, but I have a 323 Los Angeles #. I noticed recently that the voicemail timestamp is giving L.A. (Pacific) time. How can I change it so it gives New York (Eastern) timestamp?

Is your service address changed to the New York location?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

kahajose,


That would certainly concern me too! It's important that everything shows up the way you need it to. Let's make sure we solve this. What phone do you have? Has this always been the case or did this just start recently? Can you think of any recent changes to the phone?

Hi Andrew! I have a Blackberry Classic. It hasn't always been like this. It started after an extended trip to California in May. Ever since I got back home to New York, the voicemail time stamp is still California time.

kahajose,


That makes a lot of sense. The phone may not be recognizing the home area for some reason. Let's see if we can fix that. Can you try turning the phone off and removing the SIM card? Go ahead and leave that out for a minute or two and then put the SIM back in and turn it back on.

Hi Kahajose,


Thanks for the hardwork! The voicemail platform is going to be based on the area code of the number. If the number is Los Angeles number the voicemail will steer to a Los Angeles timestamp.


Thanks,

That hasn't always been the case though and is illogical that it doesn't adjust to current time zone

Does your phone have the correct time showing at the top? If not it might be in the actual VM settings. Call #8899 from a different phone if you can or 8009220204 so tech support can help.

Hope this helps
