Verizon Tips I need but can never easily find

Verizon Phone Finder
They will lead you to some page that seems to suggest you needed to buy a premium service from them if you need to find your phone. Don’t fall for it. Or maybe you will get their other page which only sends you on to Google’s page. So, for Android phones, here is the universal phone finder link:

http://google.com/android/find

It’s pretty cool. It shows pretty precisely where the phone is, how much power is left and gives you the chance to ring it for five minutes and even lock it.

Change your Verizon Wireless Voicemail password
This is even harder to find unless you have just the right search terms.

How to set up your voicemail so as not to enter a password
Basic idea: add a contact for Voicemail tack on two pauses, then append the password. So that will be

*86,,<YOUR_PASSWORD>

For instance I named this contact VM. If my password were 1234 the number would be

*86,,1234

To generate the “,” character go to the special characters key to the right of # when typing in the number.
