Voicemail Access, PIN, Configuration, and Prompts

When receiving a new voicemail the phone will play a tone and the screen will prompt with the number of new voicemails.


Configuration


Before listening to voice mails, you need to make sure the voice mail access code has been configured properly. Alternatively you can use a Telebroad system code dialed from your phone or remotely to listen to your voicemails and access voicemail options (such as greetings and PIN)


To configure the voicemail access code:

  • Select Menu from the idle screen and navigate Message>Voice Mail>Set Voice Mail Code.

    You can also press    if the voice mail code is not yet configured.

  • Enter *1 (the voice mail access code) in the desired account field.

  • Select Save.

Accessing Voicemail Messages


After you have configured the access code you can listen to your voicemails.


To listen to voice mails


  •  Do one of the following:

    • Select Menu from the idle screen and navigate to Message>Voice Mail>View Voice Mail.

      The screen displays the number of new and old voice mails.

      Highlight an account, and select Connect (on a T57W phone you can just tap the account.)

    • When the phone prompts of a new voice mail press    or select Connect.
  • Follow the voice prompts from the system (see next) and, if requested, enter your mailbox PIN.

    You can change the PIN from the mailbox options by pressing 0 (see below), from the voicemail settings of the TeleConsole web version, or from the admin portal (Features>Mailboxes). The two later options can help you if you forgot your PIN.

Voice Prompts


The following is a list of all the voice prompts you can use while listening to your voicemails:



  • Press 1 to play the first message in the current folder. The default folder is New Messages. If you don't have new messages the default folder is Old Messages.

    During the message playback you can press * at any time to replay it from the beginning (without the envelope).

    During or after the message playback you can do any of the following:

    • Press to go back to the first message in the folder.

    • Press 2 to change the folder.

      Initially just two folders are available – press 1 for New or 2 for Old.

      New folders become available as you move or copy messages into them (see option 8 below.)

      Note that folders are available only in the voice prompts system. They do not appear in the TeleConsole!

    • Press 3 to play the envelope of the message – date, time, caller's name or number, and duration.

      You can select what you want to play from the voicemail settings of the TeleConsole Web version or from the admin portal (Features>Mailboxes).

    • Press 4 for the the previous message or 6 for the next one.

    • Press 5 to replay the message (including the envelope).

    • Press 7 to delete the message (be warned that no additional prompt is given before deletion is performed. So be careful!)

    • Press 8 to move/copy the voicemail message to a different folder and select one of the message folders – Deleted, Urgent, New, Old, Work, Family, Friends, Customer 1, Customer 2, Customer 3, Customer 4, and Customer 5.

      The folders are always listed in this order and you select them by pressing the 0-and keys. The actual key that corresponds to a folder changes slightly depending on which folder you are currently in. So 2 may be for either New or Old and 3 may be for either Work or New etc. Just listen to the prompts.

      Now press 1 to move the message, 2 to copy it, or  * to cancel.

    • Press 9 to forward the message to another mailbox. Enter the mailbox number and press #.

      Press 1 to move the message to the mailbox, 2 to copy it, 3 to add another destination mailbox, or * to cancel.

    • Press 0 for mailbox options (see below.)

  • Press 2 to change folder.

    Initially just two folders are available – press 1 for New or 2 for Old.

    New folders become available as you move or copy messages into them (see option 8 above.)

  • Press 0 for mailbox options:

    • Press 1 to create or change your Unavailable Greeting (played when you don't answer your phone.)

      Press 2 to create or change your Busy Greeting (played when you are on another call.)

      Press 4 to create or change your Name (played if the Unavailable Greeting is not set up. The system will play your name followed by saying "is unavailable".)

      For all the greetings:
       
      • If there is no prior greeting recording you will be prompted to press 1 to record a new one or * to return to the previous menu.
