How do I go right to someone's voicemail, so I don't have to let them answer the call???? 

 Like when dealing with someone you have to call but don't really want to talk to!!!

I know you can go to your voice mail and enter in your password. Then select the option "send a message".  You can send a voice mail to another verizon customer. Their phone won't ring at all. The voice mail will just appear on their phone.

 

if their not a verizon customer then you could use the Spoof feature. Although using this feature you'll still have to call the person, but you can make another phone nubmber appear on their caller ID.

If you AND they have Verizon cell phones, you can do it within your VM. The keystrokes to do this are different based on location though. But go into yourVM and listen thoroughly to all the options

I'm not sure you can do that, unless you call at a time you absolutely KNOW they will not answer their phone....

I'm not sure how they do it, but it does seem to work!

I followed the instructions calling from my husbands phone and when it prompted me to enter the 10 digit number for who I was calling I put in my cell number and my cell rang and did not go straight to voice mail, what did I do wrong I wonder.  Mary

I'm not sure.  I have used it several times.  On rare occasions the cell phone will ring very briefly before going to voice mail, but there will not be a calling number displayed.

Perhaps it behaves differently based on the type of phone or the type of cell service.

I tried it 3 times and it did not work, my phone just rang waiting for someone to answer it.    He has an ENV2 and I have an ENV3 on verizon.  Mary

Hey everyone., I tried it just now. At least where I am, when you go into VM, Option two allows one to leave a message. You record it, and hit #. You are then prompted for a phone number. If not a number that the message can be sent to (non Verizon), I am notified.

 

I think this only works if I am calling the service area of where I am. I do not think I can leave a message to a Verizon customer in CA and have this work. But honestly, I have no idea if that works or not.

Went out for a bit came home and tried again from my phone to his and it worked and the other way around so must have been a glitch the first time I tried it.  Mary

I know this is an old thread but I found this helpful: https://www.verizonwireless.com/dam/support/pdf/VM_Instructions_3.pdf

Dial into your voicemail, press 2, enter the number+#, then record and press #, then follow the prompts to send!
