The new converged fixed and mobile voicemail service will enable BT mobile and fixed line callers to leave a voice message across a choice of phones - landline and associated mobiles - as well as the ability to access voicemail from either type of device.

This service will also utilise comprehensive speech recognition for the first time and will also incorporate features such as Call Return.
