    I think that's something you'll need to change in your voice mail settings. You'll need to access your voice mail (*86) and get into the menu. Here's a link to get voice mail instructions on the Verizon support page.

    As far as your texts not coming through, have you power cycled your phone (turned it off & back on again) when you're in a strong signal area? It may be that it just needs a simple reboot. Try that and post back if it doesn't work.

    Go to settings/text-to-speach make sure "speak incoming CallerID" is not checked. I would also try reset as suggested by Mujibar to fix texting issues. If that doesn't work, try to download one of the free texting programs such as ChompSMS to see if it will receive the problems, if they won't it is probably a network (Verizon) problem or maybe an issue with the phone hardware.

    "Handcent SMS" is another free texting app that's received good reviews from the Market.

    FWIW, I'll second the recommendation to try Handcent. It's a great messaging app.
