VZ voice mail vs Answering machine
tssna5

I'd like to know if there's a telephone that can display if I have a voice mail message much like a phone/answering machine combo.  I'd like to keep using the vz voice mail system but when I forget to call the voice mail number daily, I end up missing important messages.

It's a common feature on higher-end telephones.  All o my caller ID phones (16 units) have this feature.  When shopping for telephone devices, search for phones whose specifications list this feature:

Some models will send a beep when you have voice mail.  Such as the Panasonic KX-TG6531. There are other models  that do the same thing.  I don't know of any that provide a visual display, but some may. Especially higher priced phones.

We have a standard Panasonic Cordless Phone and if a message is left on the VZ voice mail the link will blink on top of any of the phones indicating a message.  I can even program the phone with the access code to access VZ voice mail.  When I pick up the phone and turn on I press VoiceMail Button in the display and it will dial and I even have it enter my voice mail password too.

Delete all voice mails at once??

Is there a way to delete multiple voice mails all at once, instead of each individually (which is a pain)?

Thanks.

I have a Vtech cordless phone that I am trying to set up to receive voice mail messages on but when i follow the directions given in the booklet to set up, I keep getting a busy signal and then it hangs up on me.  What do I need to do?  I have called Verizon tech support, but they say I will have to pay a fee for a technican to come out and check it out.  Does anyone have an answer to setting up this feature?
