Access your voicemail from a different phone

I left my phone at home today and struggled to find a way to check my voicemail from a different phone, but I did find the answer, so I thought I would share it here for future reference.

This worked with my vodafone phone, but should be similar across most providers. A handy tip for getting staight to your voicemail, or anyones for that matter is to insert a 5 between the area code (086 for example) and your phone number.

  1. Dial your voicemail: 086 5 12345678
  2. Once the outgoing message starts, hit # (the ‘pound’ or ‘hash’ symbol)
  3. You will be prompted for your password. This is usually a 4 digit pin. If you don’t know it or don’t remember setting it, the default is 0000. I would recommend you change it if that is the case. Enter the password and hit # again.

Hope this helps you  (or even future me).
