How to access voicemail from another phone

Updated: Jul 3

This is something that's come up a few times in the past week, during recording sessions for business telephone messages.


When the messages are destined for a telephone system where you can load in audio files, I record, edit and send the finished product off to the client. They send it on to their phone provider who puts it into the system for them.


But I'm yet to find a mobile phone provider who lets you email them WAVs or MP3s to install as a voicemail for you. I'm happy to be informed otherwise, of course.


So when a client requests the message is to be put on their mobile, I have to access their voicemail remotely.


I discovered that info on how to do it was pretty difficult to find. So when I did, I decided to put it in a blog. Not only to make it clear for users who may need to listen to their voicemail on another phone, but for my benefit, should the situation arise again in the future.

If anyone's interested on how I got the recordings I was talking about onto my client's mobile voicemail...


...did I record them live into the phone? No.


I pre-recorded them, logged in as above via my computer using VoIP, found the "record new greeting" menu option, held my Beyerdynamic headphones up to my Sennheiser MK4 condenser microphone and pressed play on the pre-recorded message.


The result? A nice crisp voicemail on a mobile phone.


If you want to record your own voicemails and get a better quality sound, you could do a lot worse than use one of these very affordable little mics from Rode.
