Digital Voice Phone Message Retrieval from Outside
mdhendler
Newbie

My VIOS phone was recently upgraded to Digital. Previously, I was able to retrieve my messages away from home by dialing my home number, pressing * , entering my code, etc. Now, is seems that I have to dial a specific voice mail system number.

Is there any way that I can continue to just dial my home number, enter * or some other codes to retrieve my messages? I don't want to have to use a separate number.

What happens now when I dial my home number and hit * and then my code and # is another message saying "invalid number, please enter your 10 digit phone number". So, what is the correct sequence of keys and codes that must be used to retrieve messages after dialing my home number from outside?

My manual mentions *86 from home phone.  Obvious doesn't work when away from home.

To listen to your messages while away from home:

1. Dial the FiOS Digital Voice Mail system: 1.888.2FIOSVM

(1.888.234.6786 or *86 from your home phone).
