VM Access and Delivery
- Accessing your Voicemail box: You can access your own inbox by dialing *55.
- Voicemail PIN number: To access to your voicemail from a phone not directly linked to your message box requires a PIN code (see Voicemail PIN number). To access that box enter *55 at any time during the message. You will be greeted by the message…… ”please enter your password followed by the # key”.
- Trusted Callers: Create a trusted caller number list to avoid the extra step of entering a Voicemail PIN code. To access that box enter *55 at any time during the message. Because your number is on the Trusted callers list you will not be challenged for a PIN code.
- "Voicemail Answers": Sets the seconds to wait before diverting to voicemail.
- Email: This setting enables you to enter the email address where you want your voicemail messages delivered.
- Voicemail Star Access: Dial your own number from any phone and wait for it to go to voicemail then press *55 and you will be prompted for your PIN code (this must already be setup) followed by # to access your mailbox messages as normal. You can also setup calling numbers as trusted callers to avoid having to enter a PIN number.
