Setting up your Koodo Wireless Home Phone
So you’ve got a fancy new home phone. Here’s how to get started.
- Insert the SIM card into the tray located under the battery cover on the bottom of the wireless home phone hub.
- Insert the battery pack and close the cover.
- Connect your home phone handset to the wireless home phone hub using the phone cable supplied.
- Plug the wireless home phone hub into a power outlet located in an area that gets good mobile reception.
- Turn the power on and start dialing!
Setting up voicemail on the Koodo Wireless Home Phone is easy! Just press 1 and follow the prompts. Good to know: the steps are the same for both setting up and accessing voicemail.
All home phone handsets are compatible with our wireless home phone, except for rotary phones. Our wireless home phone also supports cordless phones that are connected to the base station, so you can receive calls throughout your home.
Since the wireless home phone requires cell service, you’ll need to make sure that your wireless home phone hub is located in an area that receives good cell reception. You’ll also get better service near a window. Be sure to avoid locating your hub in the basement.
