Cellphone, check my messages HELP please?

Ok so I remember when I had Cingular that I could check my cell phone messages on a land line phone by just calling the number and waiting for the machine to come on and then pushing SOMETHING like *(star) last 4digits of my number and then I think #(pound sign) or something like that, but I can't... show more Ok so I remember when I had Cingular that I could check my cell phone messages on a land line phone by just calling the number and waiting for the machine to come on and then pushing SOMETHING like *(star) last 4digits of my number and then I think #(pound sign) or something like that, but I can't remember.

SO know I have this PREPAID phone and want to check my messages on a land line phone to save a little money, HOW can I do that? What is the DEFAULT passcode/numbers to do this on my prepaid?

Please help.
