Telephone Features

Some of our phone features and how to use them.

To setup your voice mail you need to setup call forwarding and your voice mail preferences. Call forwarding is set for when there is no answer or when the line is busy. Setting your voice mail preferences sets your voice mail box password, recording/greeting, notification and wake up calls.

First we'll setup your call forwarding. Call forwarding is 2 steps. Call forward when there is no answer and call forward when the line is busy. Call Forward No Answer: To enable call forwarding to your voice mail box when your phone is not answered dial *92 (wait a few seconds for the stutter to quit), dial a number for the number of rings you want to wait before forwarding the call (normally 4, but if you would like to give yourself more time to get to a phone before forwarding, make the number of rings higher), then dial 258-8000. Do not hang up until the line answers, 'Please enter your mailbox number'. After you hear the recording, go ahead and hang up. EXAMPLE: *92 pause a second, 4 then 2588000. (*93 disables Call-Forward-No-Answer feature)

Call Foward Busy: To enable call fowarding to your voice mail box if your line is busy dial *90 (wait a few seconds for the stutter to quit) then dial 258-8000. Do not hang up until the line answers, 'Please enter your mailbox number'. After you hear the recording, go ahead and hang up. EXAMPLE: *90 pause a second, then 2588000. (*91 disables Call-Forward-Busy feature)

OK, now your calls will go to your voice mail box when your line is busy or no one answers. Time to set up your voice mail box features.

Dial 258-8000
1. ENTER YOUR USER BOX NUMBER: enter in your seven digit telephone number.
2. ENTER IN YOUR PASSWORD: new users will create a password further along in the setup, the default for new users is your phone number; existing users will enter their four digit password.

For new voice mail users the system begins with a tutorial to welcome you to the system and give you an overview of it. If you choose not to listen to it, or to remove it from the opening, you can press the star *

Once you enter into the voicemail system, you will be guided through by using your dial pad on your telephone. You are notified of a new voicemail message by a stutter dial tone on your phone line.

Once the user box number and the password are correctly entered, the voicemail system will give your message status. EXAMPLE: You have 1 new message, you have 2 saved messages.
