Unable to make voicemail on prepaid plan

Hi I'm having issues with setting up voicemail. I previously had a monthly plan with Fido and switched to prepaid.

https://forums.fido.ca/t5/Phones-and-Devices/Setting-up-Voice-Mail/m-p/165637#M43771 

 

This person seems to be having a similar issue as I am. I'm going to the phone app, holding 1 to activate voicemail and it says "to retrieve voice messages, enter yout 10 digit fido phone followed by the pound key". I enter my phone number and pound but it says "Sorry, that number isn't vaild".

 

Please help me!

Hello ZyraBot,

 

  Sorry to hear you're having issues setting up your voicemail on your pre-paid account. Since you've migrated from a post-paid to pre-paid account, you might need to contact customer service to have them reset your voicemail.

 

  What pre-paid plan do you have? You should note that some of the pre-paid plans only have voicemail on a pay-per-use basis. You should also note that airtime (plus long-distance or roaming charges, if applicable) would be incurred for listening to your messages (see here).

 

Hope this helps 😀

 

Cheers
