1. Use the campus Microsoft Exchange voicemail system (there is a $3 monthly charge for this service)
- submit a service order for this at https://wsnet.colostate.edu/cwis24/telecomweb/serviceorders/Default.aspx
- change the ring time before going to voicemail at http://myphone.colostate.edu in “Call Forwarding” options
- Enter your cell phone number with 8 + area code (e.g. 8-970-123-4567) at http://myphone.colostate.edu in “Call Forwarding” options. NOTE: you can not forward to a long distance number.
- visit http://support.google.com/voice/ for more information
Hint: If you don’t want to use any form of voicemail, but want to prevent callers from hearing the “This phone is not set up for voicemail” message, then change the call forwarding number of seconds to 60. That should deter anyone from thinking there is a voicemail box connected to the phone.
If you still have questions or need help, please contact Telecommunications by dialing “0” from on campus, or 970-491-1111 from off campus.
