Changing the PIN of the remote access to Call Forwarding options

Back to Get Started

 

Call Forwarding functions can be activated and deactivated from your home, but also when you are away from home (remote access). A PIN is required in the latter case for remote access to the Call Forwarding functions.

The default temporary PIN supplied by the system is "1212" (just 4 digits). For security reasons, we advise you to change it as soon as possible. 

You can change your PIN either by phone or by Internet..

To change the PIN by telephone:

  1. Pick up the receiver and wait for a dial tone.

If you are away from home, dial the remote access number that you were given when you subscribed.

  1. Dial *319.
  2. When prompted, enter the temporary four-digit PIN (1212).
  3. You will then be prompted to input a new four-digit PIN.
  4. A message will confirm that your PIN has been correctly modified.

To change the PIN by Internet:

  1. Access the Call Feature Manager web-tool at: http://telephony.northerntel.ca
  2. Go to the "Settings" tab and choose the "Security" sub tab.
  3. In the "Change PIN" section, enter a 4-digit PIN number beside the "Call Services PIN" field, and click "Change".

    Write your personal remote access PIN here:. ____________(4 digits only)
