It doesn't mean having to move through a network of numerical options to use your voicemail. It shouldn't have to be with Ooma! You must have the flexibility to choose your Ooma Telo Base Station user interface to control your voicemail.

If you have a new voicemail, you'll know many ways:
Premier: Subscribers of Ooma Premier who have configured voicemail forwarding will receive an email or text message alerting them to a new email.
You can access the initial voicemail set up by making a phone call and clicking the replay button on your Ooma computer. Setting up your PIN (for network users), recording your name, and recording a greeting will lead you through the initial setup process. The entire process is just meant to take you a few minutes.
Cab changes these settings by connecting to your voicemail and pressing '2' from the main voicemail menu.
Ooma provides a quick way for you to search for your voicemail, no matter where you are. Wherever you are, it all depends on what is best for you. In a variety of different ways, you can set up an Ooma voicemail system:
• To hear your messages being played through the built-in speaker, click the play button on your Ooma Telo Base Station.
• Pick up your handset and dial your phone number to listen to your messages on your phone.
• Pick up the handset Ooma HD2 or HD3 and click the soft toolkit to the Voicemail option.
For some reason, you may want to disable your phone service's voicemail function. Fortunately, it is not an official function made by the company, but users will be asking for it most of the time.
There are a few right solutions that we have put up with it to work on just this topic and ensure that people don't leave voicemails for you.
Option 1: Drop a recording saying anything like, "Hey, Right now, I'm not home, please call again at the time." When done, don't pick up the phone but instead leave 1-2 minutes of your personal greeting recording.
Option 2: Set 1 min or more for your voicemail pickup time. If you're doing it calling other people, you keep hanging up before your voicemail even picks it up.
Option 3: You could try a combination of option one and option two if you are tired of having voicemails. The possibilities would be incredibly poor for you ever to get a voicemail.
