    So if you change the number to "*86;XXXX#" when you dial your voicemail it will immediately popup with a confirm window asking when to send the tone XXXX#

    If you make it "*86,,,XXXX#" it will send the tone XXXX# on it's own. I believe each comma is a second and I remember I used to use 3 on my palm treo (windows mobile) with verizon wireless. This seems to work best.

    The only thing I don't like is that it shows the password on the screen.. but I suppose it would do that when typing it manually as well.

    Let me know if this helps anyone or has a better way or suggestions.

    P.s. In case it wasn't obvious the XXXX is your voicemail password.

    by the way, this also works for calling your bank, credit card company, utility... anything that says, "press 1 for this, 2 for that, enter zip code, PIN" whatever... the point is, if you routinely press the same options every time you call - program those options in.

    This worked like a charm, thank you!!! I thought for a second it wasn't going too but then it automatically input my code after the required wait and my VM's came up. Thanks!!!

    This is the system I used on my old BB, but on my Droid X the problem I have is that I cannot change the default button the dialer screen -- it just uses *86, rather than the Voicemail contact.

    In other words, if I wanted to set up a speed dial for a VM contact using this method, I could do that. But there's already a VM button on the bottom left of my dialer screen, and I can NOT change that to use this method.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Sweet I was hoping the Droid would have an option to do this.

    Why isn't this a sticky yet???

    After getting my droid I found that this does not work for me BUT I found a much easier way to do this. just go into your contacts and edit the number for voicemail. Should look something like this *86,,yourpassword

    Friends i found this method works well for me. I use the htc incredible with 2.2 firmware
    Settings>Call>Voicemail service>My carrier>Voicemail number
    After *86 type pXXXX#
    the full number should look like this *86pXXXX#
    XXXX being your password
    Now just speed dial your voicemail and it should auto dial your password. I think this will also work on previous firmware issues.

    Lightbulb Re: Voicemail Password?

    in order for your vm to auto remem your password, you go to settings on your voicemail and chose the option of turning of your password.....therefore its on but you don't have to type it in.......
