Set Up Voice Mail

Set Up Voice Mail

With Voice Mail from MTC, getting your messages is easy and convenient! You will always know you have received a message if you hear a stutter dial tone, or if you have a message indicator light on your phone and it is blinking. Or, if you’ve set your voice mail online to forward to your e-mail box, your voice mail messages will automatically show up in your in-box in real time.

To access and set-up your Voice Mail the first time:

  1. Dial 897-9906 or *318  if you are at home or within the MTC calling area.  If you are out of town, you will need to dial 1-620-897-9906 to access your voice mail. The first time you access your Voice Mail,  you will be prompted to set-up your PIN, record your name and choose your greeting.
  2. When prompted, you will enter a new PIN then press the # key, and then confirm.  MTC will provide you with a temporary PIN when you order your voice mail service.
  3. Next, when prompted, you will record your name and then press the # key. You may re-record by pressing 1.
  4. Finally, you will be prompted to choose your greeting:
  • If you would like to record your own greeting, press 1.
