MSU's new Cisco VoIP phones use Cisco Unity Connection voicemail. After upgrading to the VoIP system follow the instructions below to access and set up your voicemail.
Connection ID = your desk phone's extension (usually)
Cisco Personal Communications Assistant (PCA) = new Cisco voicemail web site
Sign into Cisco PCA with NetID and NetID password.
Access voicemail from phone
When you access your new Cisco voicemail for the first time you'll use 0211 for PIN after which you'll be prompted to set a new PIN.
From work phone:
Press Message button or dial 6060.
Press 0211* for PIN
Follow prompts to set new PIN, record greetings, etc.
From off-campus phone:
During the pilot, early adopters can access voicemail by:
- Dial your work phone's extension (for example: 994-5096).
- Wait for voicemail to answer, and then press * to listen to messages.
- Enter your extension (ID) followed by #.
- Enter your PIN (default is 0211) followed by #.
After migration to the new phone system is complete (sometime in mid-2019), all users will be able to dial 994-6060 to access their voice messages from an off-campus phone. Until then, dialing 994-6060 from off campus to access email will only work for users still on the old phone system.
*0211 is the default first-time password.
