Phones & voicemail

Forwarding a Desk phone to mobile

While you can forward your phone, the preferred option is to setup/update your voicemail message rather than having a call forward put in place.   

Setting up voicemail

Please follow the instructions to set up voicemail. If you have forgotten your voicemail pin number this will require a ticket to be logged. 

You will need to speak to your supervisor/manager who should log one ticket for all of your team members via the Service Desk Portal

We require the following information for each person: 

Extension number 

Name 

Uni ID 

New Mailbox

(Yes/No) 

Pin reset

(Yes/No)

Blocking or masking your personal mobile number 

By default, your phone number is visible when you make calls from your mobile phone.  You can suppress your number on a call by call or all calls basis. 

Blocking for a single call

You can block your number on a call by call basis by dialling #31# then the number you want to call  

NB: This may vary for some providers, please check with your service provider if this does not work.
