Updated list of Voicemail Access Numbers

Hey all, as you may know Public Mobile/Koodo/Telus Mobility have local access numbers across Canada, most ending in *4001. Many of the numbers are used for a much wider geographic area than the rate centre listed. (ie BC lower mainland numbers being assigned for phones everywhere outside of the lower mainland). These may come in handy for those travelling looking for local numbers to call from a land line, etc.

 

I also found a local access number in Yellowknife by looking up TELUS rate centres in area code 867, and trying those prefixes with *4001. Woman Happy

 

Anyhow, the "Intended Serving Area" is mostly guesses at this time, so I'd enjoy some comments oh what cities people are in, and what phone number is configured for your voicemail, and post here.

 

To check your voicemail deposit/access number, dial one of: *#61# *#62# or *#67# and let me know if you have a default access number outside of your geographical area, or one not listed here.

Re: Updated list of Voicemail Access Numbers

 @Nezgar  That's some nice research and compiling of info for the community. Excellent work.

 

It comes up third in the search bar once you type in: Voicemail access numbers. I wonder if you switch "updated list" to the end of your subject line (title) if it would come up quicker and first when typing in the search bar.

Re: Updated list of Voicemail Access Numbers

@Nezgar , great effort.  These days, most of not all smartphones can pull the voice mail number off the network.

Re: Updated list of Voicemail Access Numbers

To update the list further, it would be cool if those who see this could check their phone's default conditional forwarders via their smarphone's call forward screen, or manually by dialing one of: *#61# *#62# or *#67# and let me know if the number is something not listed above, or being used for an area different than my notes above.

I can say thay customers with an Edmonton phone number sometimes get assigned a Regina voicemail number.

Re: Updated list of Voicemail Access Numbers

Is this number assignment from the network updated when phones travel around?

And (assuming no long distance or roaming, etc) does it matter which of these numbers you dial for voicemail?

I presume the number assigned to you is determined only by the area of your own phone number. If anything, given that some cities have multiple numbers, and some users in Alberta have the Regina Sask # provisioned suggesting users in any given area may be 'load balanced' across a range of them as well.

 

All of these numbers function exactly the same.

Re: Updated list of Voicemail Access Numbers

The Halifax access number seems to be used in NL as well.

Any chance you can find out if the Edmonton account was provisioned with the 306-580-4001 or the -4002 access number?

Thanks, I've added a note regarding NL for the Halifax entry! (And PEI too since it shares NS area codes)

Sorry, but I don't remember. I no longer have that Edmonton phone number. I do know for sure that one of the Regina numbers was sent to the sim card by the network.
