Hi,

How do I set Telecom Mobile voice-mail forwarding numbers?

 

E.g. "When I don't answer", "When I'm busy" & "When I can't be reached" numbers? it seems to just ignore my new settings and doesn't save them - have Telecom blocked the ability to update these numbers?

Cheers,
Phill

Hi there it is my understanding that these are only available to be changed if you are on a post paid plan, prepaid customers don't have the ability to call forward to anything but the voicemail service

Login to http://www.telecom.co.nz/ytmobile and you can set the numbers in there.. but if you divert to the non voice mail number I think you get charged and I don't know if it works with prepaid but see how you go.

I can't seem to see how to enter a custom number?

Seems like you can't set it when you are prepaid. In postpaid you can set it to any number.

I have prepays and I can CFD All to any where I like but as Peter says Post pay has more options.

Well that really sucks that prepay customers can't change the number!
So there isn't any way around this?

Cheers,

No. It's a restriction of the way prepaid is billed which *may* be changed if/when pre and postpaid are put onto the same billing platform however its not seen as a service that is relevant to prepaid customers so I wouldn't hold my breath :(

Unsure you would need to ask someone from them but I would assume they do not based on the same reasoning. I'm not very familiar with skinny's systems and how they interact with us sorry...
