    1. If you have a Direct number, dial it, and then press * when you hear your greeting.

  • OR:
  • 2. Dial the voicemail access number which is 647-497-7036

  • When prompted, enter your 10 digit number.

• Press 1 to change the PIN.

RECORDING YOUR PERSONAL GREETING

  • To set up a personal greeting press 1.

  • To set up a system generated greeting or to change the recording of your name press 3.
