Q. How do I check my voicemail?
A. There are two ways to access your voicemail

1. By telephone
Dial *55 to access phone. 

2. Online
Log into C-Tel Portal and select Messages from the menu. You can also have voicemail's forwarded to an email address of your choice - configure this in the Voicemail Service option in your C-Tel Settings screen. Messages will be sent as .wav attachments to the email and will normally play in Windows Media Player or similar software.
