  1. My voicemail was set up at the store. I can’t hear my voicemail messages. What do I need to do to hear messages once I hit play?

  2. What do you mean by, ‘Go back to the dialer and…
    Could you please tell me specifically how to ‘Go back to the dialer…’?

  3. The conditional call forwarding number for my account is corrupted. Instead of forwarding to my voicemail message for an unanswered call, the caller is routed to this message: “The number you have reached is no longer in service. Error Code DID1. Goodbye.”

    To say this is annoying is an understatement.
