GENERAL INFORMATION
User notes
Spoken user prompts in the Hicom 300 Voice Mail System (VMS) will guide you
step by step through the various operations and menu’s
Each time you hear a single “bleep” tone you can proceed to the next input the spoken announcement will be stopped.
A triple bleep tone means you have made an incorrect entry or the function is
not possible.
A PIN (personal identification number) will be supplied to you by the System
Administrator to allow access to various features.
As an additional safeguard a personal password may be entered by yourself.
When you are uncertain of your position in any one of the menu’s then return
to the main starting menu by keying 0 *
Although access codes have been detailed throughout these instructions they
may not be required where certain features have been preprogrammed on the
T24/25 Digital telephones for easy operation.
Terminology
Infobox number = Address = Mailbox number = Extension number.
ID number = PIN (personal identification number).
