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

    • 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.

    • Press 5 to create or change your voicemail PIN (Personal Identification Number to secure access to the mailbox.) You will be prompted to enter your new PIN followed by # and reenter it for verification. If both entries match the PIN will be updated.
