Set up MessageBank, call forwarding and extended ring time?
How do I set up and manage MessageBank®, call forwarding and extended ring time?
MessageBank® is Telstra's voicemail and provides a personal answering service if a phone line is busy or can’t be answered. Callers are greeted with your own personal greeting and then asked to leave a message.
If you’d prefer to send your incoming calls to another number so you don’t miss a call, you canuse our call forwarding service.
You can also extend your ring time so you have more time to answer the phone before your calls reach MessageBank®.
If your calls are going straight to MessageBank®, and you have an iPhone, you may have Do Not Disturb turned on. If Do Not Disturb is active, you’ll see a moon icon in the upper right corner of your iPhone.
To turn off Do Not Disturb:
- Go to Settings
- Select Do Not Disturb
- Toggle Manual off
