Setting up your new voicemail service
We have tried to make setting up your voicemail as easy as possible To get started please follow the guide below. Setting up your voicemail should take about 2 minutes.
*NOTE* You must set up your voicemail from the phone connected to your DFN voice service. To begin the voicemail set up process dial *98, You will hear a series of prompts from our phone system to set up your voicemail account. You will be given the option to skip the voicemail initialization process, however, the system will prompt you to set it up the next time you call. Incoming calls will still be routed to voicemail with a generic greeting stating only your phone number, and you will not be able to postpone voicemail setup a second time
You will be asked to set up your pin to access your voicemail. The pin must meet the follow criteria;
At least 4 digits but not more than 20 (If you have problems creating a pin greater than 4 number please contact support for assistance)

Any part of your phone number or extension
A numeric sequence for example 1234 or 9876

2. Recording your name
Once you have completed setting up your PIN the system will prompt you to record your name, at this point you will only need to record your name, you will have a chance to record a greeting in step 3. To record your name simply wait until the prompt is finished and you hear the tone.
