I know how to transfer callers to Voicemail but I want to just send a message to a phone without calling them 1st. How can I send a message directly into a voice mail box.

Try these steps:

1.       Press and hold “Transfer

2.       Press 2 for “Blind”, then press Select

3.       Press “*0” then Extension Number

4.       Press “Send

RodneyD..... Were you actually referring to situations where you are not transferring another caller? You are calling them direct?  If so, there's not a way to do that.

if its got to be a call wouldn't see how to make that happen, but there's always glip :), but i see what your saying, the samsung PBXs i sell you can hit # and the persons ext and leave a message without their phone ringing, the person then is notified they have a message by message indicating lamp and button flashing.

You can just call and extension and then #.  Not altogether, but dial the extension and then right as it starts playing connecting message press #.

It is probably dependent on having Set up a connecting message enabled under user > screening, greeting & hold.  But, that is on at default, I think.
