After setting the number of rings before voicemail answers, the representative will give you the phone number you will use to access your voicemail, retrieve messages, record greetings and change preferences. The representative will also tell you the temporary security code: 1234. You will be prompted to change the code the first time you access your voicemail.
When you dial your voicemail for the first time, there will be a message welcoming you to the system. The fluttering light on your TTY will indicate the voice prompt is playing back. After the playback ends, enter your temporary security code (1234). You will then be prompted to choose your own security code. When your TTY indicates the end of the voice prompt, enter your new security code. Pick something easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess. The number can be four to 15 digits long, but cannot begin or end with a zero.
