Feature Request: Improve Voicemail PIN security

I remember when Sonic would only let me use an 8-character password. These days, in response to improved brute-force abilities, I can have a 32-character password, and on most sites 6 is a minimum. Yet voicemail will only let me have a 4-digit pin. That's little better than a 2-character password.

Allowing me to have a 12-digit PIN if I want would be approximately equivalent to that 6-character minimum. And if someone wants to have just 4 digits, that's their choice.

Please improve your Voicemail PIN security to allow up to 10 or 12 digits.

Voicemail PINs now accept 4-8 digits.

Considering how few people use a phone anymore or vm, 4-8 is probably enough. VM will not be a major attach factor, e-mail in general is and will continue to the the major problem. Something hacks your mail, they hack everything. A home phone is rather harmless...
