If you travel a lot, or if you should go out for the day and forget your cell phone it is possible to touch base and check your messages. My name is Kathy Pabst Robshaw total telephone effectiveness. On your cell phone it's pretty easy to do if your out, you leave your cell phone home, and you are missing those calls, missing those voicemail messages, dial your cell phone number after your voice message comes on hit pound, you generally enter your password and you'll have access to your voicemail messages. You can forward them, delete them, fast forward them what ever you have to do with your messages you can do from your cell phone. If you should have a phone with an answering machine built in like this one, you can generally call that number and again hit pound or another code and that will give you access to your voicemail. Not every telephone can allow you to check remotely, you should know that. Older machines you won't be able to do that. It has to have a certain technology that talks to the phone line and that gives you access to your voicemail. So just don't forget your pin, and don't forget your password when you have to make those phone calls and you'll have a piece of paper handy and you'll get those messages down pretty easily.
