If you're currently utilizing an answering service which is provided by AT & T, you may be wondering how to link your answering service to your landline. In order to help you discover how easy it is to perform this simple process, we've created a practical quick-guide.

Step One
-----------------

Press star 98 on your domestic telephone. This is the quickest way to get into your answering service. However, some regions won't allow for a "star 98" command - hopefully, you will be able to access the service.

Step Two
-----------------

Utilize your whole telephone number, include the prefix and then hit the pound key. This step is only necessary for those who aren't using their domestic telephones. If you're on your domestic phone, just move onto Step Three.

Step Three
-----------------

You need to create a pass code, which is "1, 2, 3, 4". This allows you to access your voice mailbox whenever you need to. This should never be your permanent pass code however, as it's obviously very easy for other people to figure out. Change your pass code during the next step in order to protect your privacy.

Step Four
-----------------

In order to create a strong and personalized pass code, you should choose one longer than 4 characters and less than 15 characters long. It should be simple for you to remember, yet hard for others to intuit. Avoid utilizing basic information, such as birth dates etc, as other people know that such passwords are commonly created. After creating your new password, proceed to Step Five.

Step Five
-----------------

Pay attention whilst listening to instructions from the system as you record a message via the Personal Options setting. This message will play for those who call you and are forwarded to your voicemail. Your message will need to be under 120 seconds in length.

Step Six
-----------------

Create extension mailboxes if you require them. This happens on the same setting as the central menu. Follow the prompts in order to get your message up and running.
