How do I setup up my voicemail?

Ive got the Nokia C6 on a pre paid plan with free call display and voicemail, but the booklet it came with and the website doesnt direct me to such a solution.

Re: How do I setup up my voicemail?

Hey everyone!

 

       Although this thread is quite old, I'd like to add a little update since I came across it. Fido`s voicemail retrieval number has changed  in the past years. If you find yourselves unable to retrieve your voicemail when you are already subscribe to a voicemail option then I recommend to follow the steps bellow to make sure that your voicemail number is correct & to set it up if needed.

 Please proceed as indicated: 

  • iPhone: Dial *5005*86*+16478396178# (may not work on all iPhone models).
    • This is for customers without IPhone Visual Voicemail
  • Android: Go to Phone Icon > option for extraSettings > Call Settings > Voicemail Settings > Voicemail Number and input +14168216549
  • Wireless Home Phone (WHP): Dial *983*866*(Voicemail Retrieval Number)# from the home phone handset.

 

 Hope this helps!

Voicemail setup

Hi 

I am trying to setup my VM on Fido but it asks me to enter my 10digit mobile no to retrieve messages when i press 1 and then says thats incorrect.

 

I am from NS if there is anything different that we have to do. Please let me know as this is becoming really frustrating now.

 

Thanks,

siri
