Hi SueFred

I would be glad to assist you today! When calling your voicemail from a different device, once you hear your greeting press "#" key. It will then ask for your password .Then it will bring you to the main menu. I hope this helps!

Here's a great link with some FAQ's about voicemail: and Optional Services/faq_voice_mail.html
