How Do I Check My Bell Canada Voicemail While Away?

It's always a good idea to have some voicemail system in place, even if you're only using it for personal use. Voicemail can be helpful in several ways, from providing a way to take messages when you're unavailable to giving you access to important messages when you're out of town. Bell Canada makes it easy to get your voicemail while away, as you can use another phone.

If you're like most people, you probably don't want to miss any important calls while you're away from home. That's why it's a good idea to check your voicemail regularly, even when you're on vacation. But what if you're not near a phone? Or what if there's no signal where you are? Not to worry -- there are several ways to check your Bell Canada voicemail while you're away. Here is how to go about it.

How to Check My Bell Canada Voicemail From Another Phone

If you're not near your home phone, you can check your voicemail from another phone by dialing your Bell Canada voicemail number. Here is the procedure to follow:

  1. To listen to your voicemail from another phone, dial your ten-digit home phone number.

  2. Press "9". This is After the voicemail begins to play.

  3. Dial your ten-digit phone number.

  4. Enter "#" when prompted by the voicemail service.

  5. When prompted to enter your password, enter your seven-digit phone number.

  6. Press '#,' and your voice messages will begin to play.

What To Do If You Can't Access Your Voicemail

If you're having trouble accessing your voicemail, there are a few things you can do:

  1. First, try deleting any old voicemails that may be taking up space in your mailbox.

  2. Then, make sure you're entering your password correctly. Be sure to use the numbers associated with your account, not the letters.

  3. Finally, if you've tried both of these things and you're still having trouble accessing your voicemail, contact Bell Canada's customer service department for assistance.

Receiving Voicemail Through MMS

If you're traveling outside of Canada, you may not be able to access your voicemail through regular phone service. In this case, you can receive voicemail through MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service). Here's how:

  1. To receive voicemail through MMS, make sure your phone is set up to accept MMS messages.

  2. Once your phone is set up, send a blank text message to Bell Canada's voicemail number.

  3. You will then be sent a confirmation message. Reply "Y" to this message. Contact customer support when a problem comes up.

From then on, you will receive voicemails as MMS messages

What To Do If You Forget Your Voicemail Password

If you forget your voicemail password, don't worry -- you can reset it. Here's how:

  1. First, try calling Bell Canada's customer service department. They may be able to help you reset your password.

  2. If that doesn't work, go to and click on the "Forgot your password?" link. Reach out to customer support for further guidance.

  3. Enter your phone number and click "Submit."

  4. You will then be sent a password reset message. Follow the instructions in the message to reset your password.

  5. Once you have reset your password, you will need to enter it into your voicemail settings.

How to Set Up Notifications for New Messages

You can set up notifications if you want to be notified when you have a new voicemail. Here's how:

  1. Go to and sign in to your account.

  2. Click on the "Settings" tab.

  3. Click on the "Notifications" tab.
