Voicemail - Initial setup

General Info

  • Your voice mailbox number is the same as your extension number
  • Your password is initially set by the IT Department
  • The storage limit is 100 messages (in instances where messages are not being delivered to email)
  • You may access your voicemail from your handset, from any other university handset or remotely i.e. from a home phone or cell phone

Access your voice mailbox for the first time:

From the handset at your desk:

  1. Press message button on the handset on your telephone OR dial 1014
  2. System will automatically connect you to your voicemail box
  3. Enter your password at the prompt

From an extension other than your own located on the Trent phone system:

  1. Dial 1014
  2. Enter your 4-digit extension at the prompt.
  3. Enter your password at the prompt

From remote location (device not on the Trent phone system network)

  1. Dial 1-705-748-1014.
  2. Enter your 4-digit extension at the prompt.
  3. Enter your password at the prompt

    1. At first login your password is the same as your extension. The system will not accept your extension number as the new password. Password can be a minimum of 4 characters to a maximum of 15 characters in length, and cannot contain the characters #pound sign or *asterisk
  2. Record your name
    1. Generally your personal (first/last) name, but this could also be the name of a dept., lab or service for that extension.
