You can retrieve your mobile phone's voice mail from a landline phone. Voice mail messages can be left for you when you are unable to answer your mobile phone. When a message is left, you will be notified on your mobile phone. When you first established your voice mail, you were prompted to create a passcode. The passcode can be used to access your voice mail from a landline phone when you are unable to call the voice mail system from your mobile phone.
