Setup

When you access your Voicemail for the first time, clear directions will tell you how to record your answering message. You will be required to use your PIN in this process. If you have not yet created a PIN number, your default PIN is the last six digits of your phone number. We strongly suggest you change your default PIN after establishing the Voicemail feature.
