Additional Questions and Answer

Refer to the following questions and answers about Voice Tools. If you have additional questions, you can contact us.

Why does the Call History log list the name of some outbound calls as either unavailable or blank?

These calls go through successfully, but the call log cannot list a name associated with a 7-digit outbound call. Only 10-digit calls list the name being called.

How do I rewind a voice message?

Position the mouse cursor onto the left side of the slider bar on the media player and then click. The voice message rewinds to the point where you clicked.

Can Voice Tools retrieve a deleted voice mail message?

No. Once the Delete button is clicked, the message is deleted and cannot be retrieved.
