First, if you plan to do it from your phone, you need to make sure all of the following is tru:

  1. Your phone supports both 900 & 1800 MHz GSM frequencies used in Ireland
  2. You have international roaming enabled on your account
  3. You're dialing VM retrieval number and not your own phone number

If at least one of those conditions is not met, you won't be able to retrieve VM from your phone. If you have a password set for accessing VM you can use other phone services to dial your phone number, hit * to interrup the prompt and enter the password to retrieve the VM. best to turn the cell phone off just in case before calling it.
