Show more/lesshow to set up your Answer Phone PIN

Setting up a PIN for your Orange Answer Phone will ensure that your voicemail messages are protected. You'll also need to have an Answer Phone PIN set up to access your voicemail while abroad in some countries.

Here's how to set up you Answer Phone PIN:

  1. call your Answer Phone from your Orange mobile by dialling 123 or holding 1
  2. select option 3 for settings and features
  3. select option 3 to set your PIN

Your unique PIN must be between four and ten digits long. For better security, your PIN can not be made up of one repeated number (like 2222), or consecutive numbers (like 5678).

We recommend that you change your PIN on a regular basis. For additional security, it's also possible to require the entry of your PIN every time you access your Answer Phone, either from another phone or your mobile phone itself.
