Since voicemail has been the top searched word over the past 5 years, we thought it would be a good idea to blog about it. So without further ado, here’s a list of frequently asked questions we put together for you:
What is the voicemail number?
Regular voicemail: +1 416 821-6549
Visual voicemail for iPhones : +1 647 839-6178

The +18 text message is a notification to let you know that someone has left you a voicemail message. There is no way to turn this notification off (in case you were wondering).

Calls are automatically forwarded to voicemail when your phone is off, on airplane mode, Do Not Disturb mode, or when you’re outside of the coverage area (no service).
How do I bypass the voice signature recording during the setup?
It’s unfortunately not possible; that step can no longer be skipped. Also, once you record the voice signature, it can’t be deleted afterwards.
