How do I retrieve voicemail on Fido


Hi gogi!

 

You should be able to press and hold the #1 key on your phone to access voicemail. If you're using an Android and your phone does not have the voicemail centre number stored, go to Settings > Call Settings > Voicemail Settings > Voicemail Number and input +1 416-821-6549.

 

To store the number on a iPhone, dial *5005*86*+14168216549# then tap Call (hold down 0 for a few seconds to get the + sign). This will only work if you don't have a Visual Voicemail.

 

More info here.

The speed dial 1 does not work for my call answering. It disconnects when I hold it. How do I fix this?

Re: What is Fido voicemail number?

Hi!

 

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 that was previously owned by someone else. When I try to program the voicemail number under voicemail settings, it tells me "Failed to read data. Voicemail number change unsuccessful."

 

I know I'm able to alternatively access my voicemail by dailing the 416-821-6549, but I'd rather have it set up with the long-hold 1. Can anyone help me with this?

 

Thanks.
