Cisco VoIP - Changing Voicemail PIN

How to change your voicemail personal identification number (PIN).
When changing a phone PIN, follow the security guidelines provided by the Cisco Unity Connection administrator.  In general, shorter PINs are easier to use, but longer PINs are more secure, especially using a nontrivial PIN. The phone PIN must be at least five digits long.
A nontrivial PIN means: 
  1. The PIN is not the same as previous PINs.
  2. The digits are not all the same (for example, 99999).
  3. The digits are not consecutive (for example, 12345).
  4. The PIN is not the same as the extension.
  5. The PIN does not spell the subscribers name.
  6. Password cannot contain digits that are dialed in a straight line on a keypad
  7. Password cannot contain repeated groups of three or more numbers
