My ooma hub and scout are not conveniently located to access my voicemail.

When someone leaves me a voicemail, the voicemail light on my phone flashes. So I want to dial to get INSTANT access to my voice messages. (with Qwest we dialed *98)

Is it true that instant voice mail access is not a feature on ooma through dialing? (I already know you can access it with the hub/scout)

Others have suggested that I use remote access and dial my full number from the outside to access it remotely, but if I'm in my house I have to let it ring for 24 sec. before I can get to my voicemail. Is waiting 24 sec. the only voicemail option besides using the hub/scout or am I missing something here?

Let me know. Thanks.

Great. I will be programming the VM button on my phones. Do I need to include the area code, or will the 7 digits do it.
