SBC Call Notes Directions
By Christell York
SBC acquired its former parent company, AT&T, in 2005, and then changed its name to AT&T Inc. But the company continues to offer phone features including Call Notes voice messaging service. Call Notes allows callers to leave the individual a message when their calls go unanswered. This feature is offered for an additional monthly fee to AT&T subscribers. Once your voice mail is set up you can check your messages from any phone with no additional fees assessed.
Dial "*98" or the voicemail access number at 1-800-225-5668 from you home phone. Enter your temporary password provided by AT&T to begin the setup process. You will be prompted to create a permanent password for your account. Your permanent password should be six to 10 digits long. After updating your password you will be prompted to record a name announcement and a greeting. Once you have completed these steps your message box will be read for use.
