    Call your cell phone number.

     

    When it picks up, hit *

     

    Then enter your PIN.

     

    Hope you remember it if it was from long ago.

     

    If you don't remember, you need to dial your VM from your cell and then go thru the menu to reset the VM password.

    Yes, I saw that.

     

    I answered his question. What seems to be confusing?

    I would interpret the OP's question as "how to I retrieve my cell phone's voice mail by dialing from a landline."

    Thank you, pixelmountain.

     

    Yes. That is how I interpreted OP's question...

     

    "How do I retrieve my cell phone VM from a landline?"

     

    That is the question I answered.

    That you did and it's crystal clear if you ask me Smiley Very Happy Apparently not everyone is aware of the fact that it is possible to place a call to a cell phone number from a landline but lets hope the OP is.

    OP never said that he/she wants to retrieve VM from Cell phone... Obviously some people don't know that people can leave VM on Land line...

    LOL.

     

    No problem. I've confused myself (and others) many a time.

     

    As long as the OP was helped that's all that matters.

    I understand how to get to voice mail from land line BUT does this use any of your minutes to retrieve?

    No. Calling from a land line does not use cell minutes. In fact calling from another AT&T cell phone uses mobile to mobile minutes.
    This is a user to user forum. I am a user, just like almost everyone else on the site.

    *98 will bring you to AT&T voice mail.  Just enter your pin #.  If you forget it, it'll ask you that and have you enter a retrieval question so you can reset it.
