Samsung A737 slider phone. Trying to follow the steps below:Dialed 1 to access voicemail- it says more information needed to direct your call to the appropriate mailbox. To leave a message dial a 10 digit mailbox number or if you have a mailbox on this system press #We press # it asks that we enter the mailbox number which I am assuming is her phone number. That's where we are stuck. I've entered her entire number with area code, number without area code, and the last four of her phone number. It tells me it does not recognize a mailbox with that number.What is this??? All of our other phones were set up when received and never had this problem. We hit voicemail and it goes straight to our mailbox, never have entered a mailbox number.Any ideas?????????????

what do you do after calling cs should you talk to a person or automated message because i am having the same problem
Talk to a person, automated system may be good at answering generic questions or solving common tasks, but if you have a specific VM problem a person is always better to troubleshoot.

This is easy, just call customer support. I had the same problem, calling customer support and telling them my same problem worked for me.
