voice mail deletion

voice mail deletion

is there a way to delete voice mail by batch, rather than having to listen to each and then delete?  I don't use this vm system and i see there are 188 vms.  i don't want to have to go into each one, then delete, even without listening to the message that's going to take awhile.   also can you block vm?

Re: voice mail deletion

You don't have to listen to an entire voicemail to delete it. Start listening to a message and then press 7-7 to delete it immediately.

I think you should be able to delete voicemails from the DVC without listening to them. But I don't think there's a delete-all option there, either.

If you call Comcast they may be able to turn off your voicemail entirely. I don't think there's a way for you to do this yourself.

You should probably read the Voicemail FAQ.

Re: voice mail deletion

Currently you can not delete all messages or disable voicemail through telephone or web interfaces by yourself. We will consider some enhancements in the future.

Re: voice mail deletion

I can just hear the support call or forum message now: 

"I deleted all of my voicemail at once and I had a VERY important message in there that I can't lose from my [lawyer/doctor/ex].  How do I undelete it?"

Re: voice mail deletion

Undelete is not available today. So when you delete a message, please be careful. For an important message, you may want to download a copy from DVC and save it to your computer.

Re: voice mail deletion

According to Managing Your Voice Mail, you can review and restore your deleted messages as long as you're in the same voicemail session. Deletions become permanent when you hang up from voicemail.

Re: voice mail deletion

That’s right. You can press 6 at the main menu. Barmar, thanks for the clarification.
