Accessing your Voicemail when you are away from home

Back to Get Started


Once you have initialized your Voicemail, you can access it any time, even when you are away from home, in order to listen to, save or delete your voice messages.

To access your messages from the outside:

  1. Dial your home phone number.
  2. When you hear the Voicemail greeting, press * (star).
  3. The system will ask you for your PIN (the Voicemail one).
  4. You will then be able to access your messages, as well as all the Voicemail features.

Note: These instructions also apply if you are calling long distance to retrieve your messages. In this event, you can charge the call to your NorthernTel Calling Card.

Alternate number for remote access (direct access)

If one of the following services has been activated on your line, namely Call Forwarding, Find-Me-Follow-Me or Do Not Disturb, dial the remote access number that that was provided to you when you subscribed. Since you may not be able to hear your personal greeting when these services are activated, this phone number gives you direct access to the Voicemail instructions. Once you have entered your 10-digit telephone number and your password, simply follow the voice prompts as usual.
