So It appears Vodafone have "transitioned" to a new voicemail system.

 

I used to get a red icon on my voicemail icon (both apple and Windows phones) telling me how many voicemails I had. Now I just get a string of txt messages.

 

When I rang 777 they told me their new system doesn't support this anymore and I have to put up with it. Really? I seem to remember the big hu-ha about providers needing to offer this service to become approved iphone resellers.

 

So my question is, "Can Vodafone's new system support icon notification or not?" and if it can how do we get it enabled?

ICON notification is zero related to Apple and was a standard before SMS notification that is normal today

As far as I know its just a specially formatted txt message that the phone interprets as an icon badge. Txt message notification was around way before that.

 

 

 

Anyway I've just signed up to Touch Voicemail, (touchvoicemail.com) and now I bypass the Vodafone system, so problem solved laughing

I spoke to someone from Vodafone about this today and was told the voicemail migration is still in progress. It was implied that the icon notification can be enabled once the migration is finished.
