Voicemail authentication code

Tips for creating an authentication code
Ensure your voicemail PIN is set up before creating an authentication code. You’ll need your authentication code when setting up voicemail.

Follow This Steps

Set up your authentication code by phone

  1. Dial*98 from your home phone.
  2. Press4 for Mailbox Settings.
  3. Press2 for Administrative Options.
  4. Press1 for Security and Hands-Free.
  5. Press4 for Authentication Code.
  6. Press1 to Create or Change.
  7. Select which birthday to enter:
    • Mother – press1
    • Father – press2
    • Spouse – press3
    • Child – press4
  8. Enter the 8-digit date of birth (MMDDYYYY).
  9. Re-enter the 8-digit date to confirm. This returns you to the Security Options menu.
