Voicemail | User guides for Mobile and Wireless broadband
This article explains how to set up and manage your voicemail service on home phone wireless or a wireless broadband account.
- Voicemail gives callers the ability to leave a message when you're busy or not available.
Before you start
Your voicemails are only accessible by you and remain available until you listen to them.
Once you have listened to them you can then keep them for a further 30 days, after which they are deleted unless you listen again and renew that period.
The inbox capacity is 50 messages, once this limit has been reached you will be advised that the inbox is full and no more messages can be left.
Voicemails can't be retrieved once they have been deleted, or after voicemail has been deactivated.
Note: In some cases, you are charged to call voicemail. Please check your plan's pricing information.
While you are roaming, your calls will only go to voicemail if :
- Your mobile is switched off
- You have activated the 'divert all calls to voicemail' option
First time Setup
- Your greeting: This is the message people who are diverted to your voicemail will hear
- Your voicemail PIN: This is a 4-6 digit number that is needed when you're checking your voicemail from a landline or another mobile
