You’re leaving a voicemail message for someone, and you mess up. Or maybe you’ve just said, “Dude—Your behavior at lunch was appalling,” and you realize that a more tactful wording might be appropriate.

Or you change your mind about leaving a message altogether.

All you have to do is press the # key on your phone.

At this point, a voice gives you three options:

Press 1 to play your message back so you can hear it.
Press 2 to continue recording. (In other words, the # is a great “Pause” key; it holds the recording while you think.)
Press 3 to erase your voicemail. You can start over again if you like, but you don’t have to.
Impressively enough, all four U.S. cellphone carriers—Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile—treat the # keystroke exactly the same way, and offer exactly the same options when you press it.
