Sending voicemail from iPhone directly to voicemail on another iPhone

Member

Is this possible?  I see that others have said it's option 2 in the main voicemail menu, but I don't have an option 2.  All I'm offered is 4 for personal options and * to exit.

I can't see the PDF you attached, but I suspect it is referring to the basic non-visual voicemail option that isn't available through the voicemail system used by the iPhone. The option is only available by dialing *86 to get to the voicemail system on the Verizon Wireless server and not the Apple server for the iPhone voicemail system.

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

No, I want to leave a voicemail for another Verizon customer without making their phone ring (which would disturb them at work).  There are variations of this flowchart out there which all show option 2 from the main menu to  send a voicemail, but I only have option 4 in my main menu.

Got it, janineanne. The only guarantee that a phone will not ring are: if the device if off/Airplane Mode, contact is blocked, ringer off or Do Not Disturb is on. If this is not the case, the phone will ring before it routes to the voicemail.

Thanks.  I can dial *86 to get to voicemail, but it doesn't have that option so I guess it's a different server.  Darn.
