@hio77 , Do you know if there is ever going to be visual voicemail at all ??.

 

Does anybody else have any experience with 3rd party visual voicemail providers. I see Vxt are they pretty good and what are their costs ??

I use Hi Voicemail on iOS and it’s awesome. Cost increased substantially a little while ago but in particular if you use it for work it’s worth it.

I don't see any point in it and a waste of $$ for carriers to deploy

Personally I love it, to know who actually left a message and the content without that ugh do I really want to listen thought... So worth it.

Note: I'm not consuming a spark voicemail service.

Just disable voicemail. Its day is done, people can email or text an actual message instead of leaving a long diatribe that you probably mishear because of telco crap voice quality and dropouts.

VM is on decline, so not worth the resources to setup now I'd say, when there are other options they could implement, e.g. VM message sent to email.

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Out of interest, do all of the telcos allow this? If you disable it can you still leave a greeting so that you can advise callers of your email address?

You can set a personal greeting with no voicemail on Skinny. Don’t know about other Telcos

I find our voicemail to email service on our home phone pretty useful. Both my wife and I receive any voicemail message wherever we are so we can see at a glance see whos called and listen to the message if we want - typically its either my mother or her mother so mmmm.

I'd be surprised if any telco in NZ bothers - voice is dead, voicemail is declining rapidly, and nobody would want to pay for VMM despite the fact it costs huge $$$ to deploy VMM as Apple own the patent and so every VM platform provider has to charge $$$ for licencing to deploy it.

Hi guys! Luke from Vxt here. Happy to answer any questions about Visual Voicemail whether it be our service or otherwise. 

Contrary to what you'd expect voicemail use in NZ at least hasn't been declining over the last decade (or increasing mind you). About 2 million voicemails are left every single day and approximately 1 million Kiwis check their messages at least once a week.  

If anything, my guess would be that people are using voicemail less in their personal lives and more professionally.

I would be surprised if any carrier in NZ released those stats! Sounds like figures pulled out of thin air
