Support ⋟ Voicemail
Each Virtual Number includes its own Voicemail box. The Outgoing message can be the same as other Virtual Numbers or be completely different. This allows you to have multiple "identities" for each Virtual Number. You can use the same greeting for each Voicemail box, or record and use different greetings for each.
Unlimited Voicemail Messages
We offer Unlimited Voicemail Messages, so your callers will never hear "Your mailbox is full." We NEVER delete Voicemails while your account is active, unless you delete them. But you don't have to; we have virtually Unlimited Voicemail Message capacity, so you never have to delete Voicemails.
Tossable Digits Voicemail not Answering
If you have our Voicemail enabled for one of your Virtual Number, you may find that calls go to your forwarding phone's voicemail. To make sure calls go to our Voicemail, check the PromptMe™ checkbox in the Voicemail section of the Number Configuration page. This will play a short message to you when you answer, requesting that you press 1 to accept the call, or press 2 to send them to Voicemail. If your forwarding phone's voicemail answers, the caller will still hear ringing for 10 more seconds as this message plays, and then we'll stop waiting for a response and take the message. Now you can safely ignore calls and know that callers will hear your custom Virtual Number Voicemail and not reach your forwarding phone's voicemail.
Checking Voicemail via PhoneYou can check your Voicemail three different ways from any phone, anywhere.
Using the phone that your Virtual Number forwards to
Dial your Virtual Number. The system will detect that you are, in effect, calling yourself, and put you into our Voicemail system. You must unblock and expose CallerID, or this method will not work.
From a different phone with Voicemail enabledDial your Virtual Number. When you hear your Voicemail greeting, press # and you'll be asked for your Passcode. This method only works if you have Voicemail enabled. NOTE: For this method you must have a Passcode set in your Profile.
From a different phoneDial our Access Number, available here once you are a customer, and enter your Virtual Number, including Country Code, and press pound (#). You'll be prompted for your Passcode, after which you can access your Voicemail. NOTE: For this method you must have a Passcode set in your Profile.
Change Greeting viaPhone
You can change your greeting from your phone as well. Dial into your Voicemail, then when the system tells you how many Voicemails you have, press "3" and the system will ask you to record your Voicemail Greeting.

Receiving your Voicemail via Email
Log into your account and click the Virtual Number. Under the Voicemail feature, check the box entitled "send a copy of each message by email to" and enter the email address. It can be the same as your account email address, or a different email address for each Virtual Number. Voicemails are sent as an MP3 attachment. Here is a sample:
