To access voice mail from outside dial into your home phone and when the greeting is playing press #.  You only use *99 while you are in your home.

 

Full instructions are on page 12 on the manual HERE

if you have xfinity voice you can do it right through the web by clicking the voice tab on top of this page. I assume you can do that since you posted this. 

 

 

If you dont want to do it that way, call your phone number when the greeting starts click the # symbol put in your passcode and there you go.

It works. Call your home phone number, hit the pound key and it will ask you for your 4 digit password that you set when you created your voice mail box.Smiley Happy

Hello,

You will have to setup a passcode.
