Is there a way I can delete voice mail messages without having to go into voice mail and listen to it first before deleting. Currently, I can delete the notification but that does not delete the message, it is still out there when I go back into voice mail and start listening to them.
I used to be able to do this with my old phone before I got a smart phone.
You could subscribe to Visual Voicemail for $2.99 per month. This gives you a lot of different options with voicemail, including erasing a message without listening to it.
But you can just delete a voicemail message without playing it through to its entirity by pressing 7 in the middle of the message. Be sure to press * (twice) to end the call, or it may just end up being marked for deletion and not deleted.
Thank you 10sEn for providing great feedback.
To delete a voicemail message without having to listen to it, simply press the number 7 once the message begins. For more information on voicemail, please visit the link below:

I use youmail and I can erase from computer. It sends to phone plus computer and I can listen from both and erase. You can set up special messages for individuals if you want, it's cool and it is free. It turns off Verizons voice mail so you can check on PC and not get charged minutes by calling into VZW Voicemail. Youmail.com
