Just set up my wireless home phone. When at home can I disable the need to enter the password for checking voicemails?

Thx

Re: Wireless home phone password

I'm not sure why people are saying you can't.

To skip the password prompt at home.  *98  (your password) followed by the prompts. #4, #2, #1, #2, choose skip password on.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Wireless home phone password

All 'remote' type voicemails... rogers home phone.. this one, etc... all require a password.. as they are not stored LOCALY but on a server with many other people mailboxes.

SOME Phones..  have an option to program a code INTO it that when you press the VM button it enters the code automatically.

Hi @LarsIngemar

 

Welcome to the Forums !

 

Unfortunately there’s no way to bypass entering your password on the wireless home phone service as this is a security feature.

 

As an alternative, you can turn off your voicemail completely. Please review the following thread here .

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

One more, call display only displays phone number, not name. Always worked with the same phone using Rogers internet based home phone. Any setup needed?

Hello @LarsIngemar,

 

Do you recall what base model you have? Name Display is only included  with the  WF721 device or later

Re: Wireless home phone password

Hi @SharMar57,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

I apologize for the delayed response. Just to clarify are you looking to change the current password or reset the current one in case you've forgotten it? 

 

The following steps describe how to access voicemail with the Wireless home phone service:

 

  1. Press and hold 1 from your home phone handset.
    • If holding 1 doesn’t work, you can dial *98.
  2. When connected to the voicemail, follow the system prompts to navigate and manage your voicemails.

 

In case you experience any errors, please reach out to us via PM @CommunityHelps and we can definitely help you with your request.
