    Well, I'm new here, as you can see. I just got my Moto Droid a week ago and love it. Still trying to figure everything out on it, but making some progress.

    One thing I would like to know is how can I check my voicemail without having to enter my password in EVERYTIME. I could do it on my other phone but haven't found a way to do it on my Droid yet. Any help would be great.

    Other than that, I'm always looking on the web to find new things I can do on my Droid after work.

    :welcome: to the forum. Every phone I've owned with Verizon I've always had to type in my password. If there was a way around it I sure don't know how. I'm not sure I'd not want it to request my password.

    You can always download a visual voicemail app from the Market. There's 3 free ones I know of for sure. There's Youmail, Phone Fusion Visual Voicemail, and one called Hulu that I've never used. Youmail and PF are both great and you can set a password if you want to

    Current Phone Model:
    Nokia Lumia Icon
    Go into Setting/call settings/voicemail settings.

    you will see *86

    After *86 put two commas then your password. The commas are pauses.

    So voicemail settings should look like this :

    *86,,1234 (1234 designates your password)

    Thanks. I just done it and that's what I was looking to do. Thanks again.
    Also, you forgot to add # to it. So it should look like
    *86,,#1234
