Haven't seen this tip yet on here:
If you'd like to have your voice mail log in automatically (instead of having to type your password in) go to settings>call settings>Voicemail>

enter *86,1234#

1234 = whatever your pin is.

the "," is a 2 second pause. you may have to play with this and add another "," if it enters the pin too quickly after you call.

On my old phone I need 2 2sec pauses so when I got my SF I tried the second comma from the get go but it wouldn't take it for some reason. For me it does work just fine with the one comma, 2 sec pause. There have been threads on this in here but its good to resurface the subject since we get dozens of new members every week

Actually *86,1234#1 works better as it starts playing the messages for you.

I actually have my 10 digit number instead of the *86, it helps if you are not on a home tower however I basically have an unlimited pool of minutes. Good tip, can be modified for any carrier.

This is going to seem like a very silly question...when I went into the menu described, I did NOT see a keypad key which had a ",". Any way around that?
