To access your voicemail from your phone, dial *512 and enter your password when prompted.  You'll be given a default password when you start, but you can change that in the voicemail menu.  If you need your voicemail password reset, send mail to gripe [at] cs [dot] utexas [dot] edu.

To enable call forwarding from your phone, dial *72 and follow the prompts.  To disable it, dial *73.
