  • Using FiOS Digital Voice With a Home Answering Machine You have two options if you want to use your home answering machine with FiOS Digital Voice.

    Remove Verizon Home Voice Mail
    You must request that Verizon Home Voice Mail be removed from your service. You can do this when you first sign up for FiOS Digital Voice, or you can contact Verizon.

    Bypass Verizon Home Voice Mail
    You can bypass voice mail by increasing the number of rings on the Verizon Voice Mail to eight (which is the maximum of rings allowed) and decreasing the number of rings on your personal answering machine to less than eight.

    You can use this same method to redirect faxes to your home fax machine.
