Reset your PIN from your home phone
Your Authentication Code is required to reset your PIN from a phone. Use the steps below to reset forgotten PIN from home phone.
  1. Dial *98 from your home phone or, if away from home, dial your home number and press *.
  2. Enter the PIN you believe is correct and press # if asked.
  3. After three failed attempts, the voicemail system will ask if you have forgotten your PIN. Follow the prompts for a forgotten PIN. You will hear a prompt to reset your PIN.
  4. When you hear the prompt to reset your PIN, press 1.
  5. When prompted, enter the eight-digit authentication code you created during setup. You will be required to enter it twice.
  6. Once successful, you will be asked to create a new PIN.

Note:
Your voicemail Personal Identification Number (PIN) is similar to a password. Just like a password is required to receive email, your PIN must be entered each time you retrieve voicemail messages. Voicemail comes with a default PIN which is the last 6-digits of your account number. We recommend you change your default PIN even if you are not using voicemail.
