If you are refering to the VOIP service, no.  If you have a voice mail message waiting you will hear a stutter tone when you pick up your phone receiver.  That would be a good idea though.

Oddly, my phones (the ones that are working, anyway) did show a little envelope when I had a voice mail today. They happen to be AT&T phones that I bought about 6 years ago.

 

So the answer is "maybe." Try calling home with your mobile, leave a voice mail and see what shows up on your phone.

Apparently the RG generates the FSK signal that tells certain phones to turn on their MWI (Message Waiting Indicator).  Who'd have thunk it?!


Bet Magic Jack won't do that.

Is there a shortcut to retrieve vmails from landline?  In my old service, I dialled *99 after i heard the stutter.  W att I need to dial my own number and press * ?

AMM123 - Landline - POTS or U-verse

POTS uses Unified messaging - dial *98 - I programmed my VM button to dial it. You can also turn off the need to enter pin & select - just jump into the messages.

Looks like U-verse is the same - at least the *98 part.
