If it’s inconvenient to chat with someone on the phone, you can leave a voice message for that person instead. For example, you might be in a different time zone and you know that the person you’re calling probably can’t talk right now.
You can choose to leave a voicemail message for a person directly. You don’t have to talk to the person first.
Dial *55 followed by the person’s extension.
You connect directly to the person’s voicemail and can leave a message. Hang up when you finish.
If the person does not have a voicemail account, you reach their phone, not their voicemail.
