Cell phone hacks

I just saw this wonderful article at Lifehacker and I really like these tips. The article is aimed at Sprint customers but I'm sure Verizon, ATT, and others have similar options. It mentions using your setting to turn off caller information (so you don't have to wait for it to say date, phone numer, etc. of the person who called before each voicemail) and to enable expert mode (cuts down the bot chatter to more concise speaking of menu entries).

The most important, which everyone should do, is disabling numeric paging. I had no idea this could be done and it's really annoying when I'm getting ready to leave someone a voicemail and have the bot ask me if I want to leave a numeric page. No. No one does. Ever. Let's all take this off our accounts and make the world a happier place.
