Default Checking BB voicemail from a "regular" phone...

Please Login to Remove!

I'm on the Telus network in Canada and was wondering if there was a way to check my BB voicemail while using a regular line.

Thanks as always.

I don't know much about Telus, but here are the ways I have got into voicemail on different networks/phone systems

Dial your cell from a landline, and wait for your greeting

At that point try one of the following
  • Dial your passcode
  • Dial your passcode and press pound
  • Press pound, and dial your passcode
  • Press pound, dial your passcode and press pound
  • Press *, and dial your passcode
  • Press *, dial your passcode and press pound

Those are the most popular ways.

On Nextel there is a different number for voicemail. Under phone and options you can see what number unanswered calls are forwarded to. Call that number and follow the prompts.

Thanks guys,

It turns out that dialing my cell number, waiting for the greeting, pushing * then my access code did the trick.

While that is true, that is extra work. Just call your Nextel phone, when you hear your greeting press *, dial your passcode and press #. Much quicker and much less work.
