What is voicemail?
Voicemail is a digital answering service that can take messages for you when you are unable to take calls. Voicemail allows you to listen to messages, to record a personal greeting and to enter and change personal settings. Voicemail is active even when your mobile phone is switched off. If someone has left you a voicemail message, you will receive an SMS telling you that you have a voicemail message. Messages that you have listened to are saved for 72 hours. You do not pay to receive voicemail messages in Spain. You pay the normal call rate to listen to voicemail messages. When you are abroad, you pay the international rate and listen to voicemail messages..
How do I set up my voicemail?
Dial 1 2 0 4 and follow the instructions to record a personal message and to set up a PIN code. A personal message will let callers know that they have called the right person. If you do not record a personal message, callers will simply hear the telephone number they have called. The PIN code enables you to listen to your voicemail messages from abroad or from another phone.
How can I listen to my voicemail?
To listen to your voicemail from your mobile phone, dial 1 2 0 4. To listen to your voicemail from a different telephone: dial 644.001.204. In this case you will need your PIN code. To listen to your voicemail abroad from your mobile phone or a landline, dial +34.644.001.204. You will need the PIN code you set up in Spain.
Listening to your voicemail from abroad
To listen to your voicemail with your mobile phone from abroad you need your PIN code which you activate in Spain. Once you have entered your PIN code you will have direct access to your voicemail. Should you not have your PIN number with you, you can ask to have it sent to you via SMS message.
How it Works

- Dial 1 2 0 4 to listen to your messages
- If that number doesn’t work, dial +34.644.001.204
- Please note: You will need a password to listen to your roaming voicemail. Activate this feature in Spain by calling your voicemail and follow the instructions in the menu
- You can switch off your voicemail simply by resetting call forwards in your telephone
