ELKHART — Verizon Wireless customers in northern Indiana need to set up new voice mailboxes or risk losing previous messages.
Verizon announced recently that it’s upgrading its voicemail service, meaning customers need to set up new voicemail boxes on or after Saturday, June 14, in order to continue receiving new messages and upgrades.
After the upgrade is complete, customers won’t be able to reply to or forward old messages. After 30 days, all messages will be deleted.
The following instructions are from the Verizon website:
