To use the service, you'll need a special access telephone number and PIN. If you already have this feature, you should have received your PIN after signing up for Remote Call Forwarding. If you don’t have this feature, you'll receive your PIN in the mail after adding this feature to your monthly service.

Call forwarding to a number with Unified Messaging

We have set up our voicemail on our home phone with the new Unified Messaging service.  When you call the number directly, it goes to voice mail as we have just set up.  We have business number that we forward to the home number.  Before this switch to Unified Messaging, it always forwarded to the home number and then to voice mail if no one picks up.  Now, after we call forward to the home number from the business number and dial the business number, you do not hear our outgoing message on the home number.  What you now hear is the message about entering your phone number and your PIN.  It's the same message you would get before the new voicemail was set up (as if the home number has not set up the voicemail).  Is there a setting to change with this new Unified Messaging at home or is there a way to fix this?  Thank you.
