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
This is interesting - I've been wondering if there might be more local voicemail access numbers - and I found this:
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:
-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.
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.
