How to Check Voicemail Remotely

By Christell York

Voicemail messages can be checked from any landline or mobile phone for both landline or cell phones. The methods to check your voicemail may vary depending on your messaging service, and your provider may have a special number you can call to access your mailbox. Checking your cell phone voicemail from another phone does not incur any additional charges. The menu options of your voicemail service will be the same as when checked from your home or cell phone, so there are no additional menu options to memorize.

Step 1

Dial your phone number and wait your greeting to begin, then press "#."

Step 2

Enter your passcode. Your passcode will be the same as when you set up your voicemail service.

Step 3

Select the menu option you would like to begin to check your messages.
