Hi I was just checking my text messages on my phone today and found that my voice mail password was changed back to the default 11111.
So I called my voicemail to change my settings through a landline so that its free.
anyways I found that there have been new options for your voice mail.
- you can now turn on the option to say what time the voice mail was received and from what phone number
- you can turn off the message prompt "At the tone please leave your message or press * blah blah blah"
- you can now turn on auto play to make all your message play one right after the other

Thought you guys may want to know

Yeah, I got that the other day when I turned my phone on. I was too busy trying to figure out why I couldn't find the dang "change your password" prompt to notice the new options.

That is pretty cool. I've added a link to this post in the FAQ (#15b).

This is interesting – I've been wondering if there might be more local voicemail access numbers – and I found this:
http://tinyurl.com/33pxnt
which includes a local number for Ottawa – and it works…

Then I realized that this seems to be piggy-backed onto the Rogers Home Phone Voicemail system – which led me to this:
http://tinyurl.com/3xwrnu
-scroll down to Voice Mail Access Codes
and it appears (not confirmed) that the number format NPA-NXX-6245 (6245 = mail) might work for all NXX owned by Rogers Home Phone – NPA = area code, NXX = local exchange code – see http://tinyurl.com/24nd54
for more information.
Anyone want to check this out?

EDIT – This seems to work for the NXX codes owned by Rogers (OCN 743B) but not those owned by Futureway (OCN 4297). My second link was to Futureway, my third was to the full listing of OCN 743B codes.

All Canadian NXX codes are also listed here:

The NXX codes for the voicemail numbers listed by Neil are owned by Rogers Wireless – but unfortunately they don't follow the handy -6245 format – although they do cover a wider area.

In Calgary, you can use 403-390-3602. It's actually listed inside the voicemail settings of the phone.

how about calling your own number from a landline and hitting # when you hear your own message? that way we dont have to remember the other local numbers

There's nothing wrong with that – provided you have a landline handy, and that you're in your local calling area. The problem is that you can't use your own number from your cell – and the numbers published by SpeakOut are in Toronto – which is LD for some of us. So it's useful to have an alternative.

Sorry for adding to this thread after so long. Is there a way to pause after entering the voice mail number and then put in your password. I like simple.

Thanks

Is voicemail acivated by default? I don't want voicemail, so do I have to call customer service to get it deacivated?

@Connie — Do you mean so that you can program this into your phone? I believe that this is a difference process for each phone. You'd have to check the manual or research the details for your particular phone.

@Goldhead — Yes, it is activated by default and yes, call customer service.

I have tried to deativate the voice mail in several of my SO and PCM phones through the setting of these phones but unsuccessfully. This is not the problem of these phones. It is the matter of this Mobility's service. You have to call the CS to do it for you.

Hi, I've just started using voicemail with my Nokia 5200. I'm wondering if others can explain what the following options in my voicemail personal options:

Notification:
- Message waiting indicator
- Out call notification

Administrative Options:
- Record prompt

Thanks,
Stan
