I forgot my voicemail PIN, how can I reset it?

If you are on the Asterisk voicemail system, you can submit a request for your PIN to be reset.

If you are on the new Unity voicemail system, you can reset your PIN on your own, through the Unity web portal.

  1. In your browser, navigate to: unityw1.voip.uic.edu/ciscopca. If you are off-campus, you'll need to connect to the UIC VPN first.
  2. Enter your UIC NetID in the Username field, and your UIC Password in the Password field.

  4. Your voicemail PIN protects the privacy of messages and secures the account from unauthorized access. You can change your phone PIN at any time through this web portal. Select the Password drop-down menu, then select Change PIN to change your PIN.

     Note: The PIN must be at least six characters long and trivial passwords are not allowed i.e., 123456
