Set up T-Hub Messaging

Before you get started, you'll need:

  • A full service Telstra HomeLine® or BusinessLine® service, preselected to Telstra for local and long distance calls
  • A BigPond® or Telstra broadband connection
  • A Home Network Gateway or compatible wi-fi modem
 

Step 1 of 8 - Set up your Messaging Service.Your messaging service is used for Voicemail. There are two messaging services available for you to choose from - Telstra Home Messages 101® (no subscription charges and free message retrieval from your home phone) or MessageBank® (subscription charges may apply).

To activate either of these services, dial 125101 from your existing phone, before you set up your T-Hub.
 
If you are subscribed to MessageBank, you will be prompted to enter your PIN each time you dial 125101. By default, your PIN is the last 6 digits of your phone number. You will also be asked to create a Welcome message the first time you access your MessageBank service.
 
Step 2: Ensure you have Flashing Message Indicator activated on your service. Flashing Message Indicator is a free service, and alerts your T-Hub when you have new voicemail. You will know that this service is activated if you are already getting alerts on your current home phone when you receive a voice message. If you are unsure whether you have activated this feature, contact T-Hub Support on 1300 136 841.
