Friday, 09 April 2010 10:43
iPhone users no longer need to dial 121 and go through a whole list of messages if they are waiting for an important one. Voicemail messages are viewable in a list format, which includes the number of the caller and time the message was left, like an SMS or email.
The service is available free of charge from 1 April – 31 May and a nominal charge of R9.99 per month is applicable from 1 June. Customers who subscribe in June will get the first 30 days of their subscription free.
According to Vodacom, iPhone users can use Visual Voicemail to read through a list of their voice messages; highlight the voicemail they want to listen to and, by enabling the speakerphone, listen, re-listen, ignore or delete voice messages in any order they please.
New and saved messaged will remain in the customer’s 121 mailbox for up to 7 days, unless the customer chooses to delete it.
Visual Voicemail will be available to all Contract, Prepaid and Top Up iPhone customers running iPhone’s software version 3 and higher.
Managing director of Vodacom SA, Shameel Joosub says that Visual Voicemail provides Vodacom iPhone users with an ability to, at-a-glance, view all their messages via an efficient and user-friendly interface.
“Visual Voicemail from Vodacom is a first for the South African market and will allow customers one-click access to any voicemail message in any chosen order in their mailbox. One of the great features of Visual Voicemail is that it allows customers to access messages, delete messages and compose messages, in any order they please, without dialing 121.”
To subscribe, iPhone users can send an SMS with “VVM On” to 123 (free) to activate the service and “VVM Off” to deactivate. Alternately, it can be activated through customer care on 111.
