voice mail tip

I don’t remember this being the case with other voice mail systems I’ve used, but AT&T doesn’t give you the option to skip to the end of the message which can be frustrating with those long messages you’ve already heard and now want to delete. While listening to a particularly long message I hit ‘7’ over and over again (7 is the key to delete a message) and much to my surprise and delight, the message stuttered, then the voice mail lady said the message had been deleted.

So, long story short, if you want to delete a message on AT&T’s voice mail system, try hitting 7 twice in rapid succession.

  1. I figured that one out when I received a call from my wife’s cell phone while it was in her purse. She must not have locked the keys and I was subjected to a 20 minute muffled conversation with her friends at lunch. I finally found the double-seven feature, much to my relief. Believe me, you don’t want to listen to a lunch conversation between four women.
