Hi,

Not sure how widely known this is, but I emailed vodafone support yesterday to ask what the status was of visual voicemail and whether vodafone was still working on it.

The reply I got was:

"At this stage Vodafone does not have the Visual Voicemail option on
either the iPhone 3G or the iPhone 3GS
The Vodafone New Zealand Network cannot support this feature of the
iPhone
There are no plans at this stage to release Visual VoiceMail"

Sounds like a complete u-turn on what was previously indicated?  I thought they were working on a solution?

Mike.

never.

shoot me...

Is there plans in the future to offer it, because this would be a deal breaker for me to shift to vodafone and get an iPhone.

:/

If they do, it's gonna cost $9.99 per month. Or only enabled on contracts over 36 months or more. Or will come with a ToS that gives VF the right to sell your body parts. Or something.

Or not.

Ok, I will give you some of the story I know...

Vodafone AU offers Visual Voicemail. There reason for that is because they use a Unisys VSP service and Unisys developed the VVM interface based on the Apple APIs.

Vodafone NZ uses a different platform, and it appears they don't have a VVM interface. Simple as that.

Are they developing one? Who knows. But from my sources I hear things are not looking good for New Zealand users.

What platform does Vodafone NZ use for voicemail?

I know when the iPhone 3G first came out I had a problem and they put me on the 'new' voicemail platform which they said worked better with the iPhones. I never got any more details than that.

Perhaps Apple should open source the protocol. :) Yeah, Right.

The thing which always drove me nuts about the Vodafone voicemail is the weird numbers they give to tasks, press 1 to listen again 6 to save 7 to delete etc, Telecom's are 1 to play again 2 to save 3 to delete. I could never remember what did what.

Also Telecom don't just DELETE messages older than 10 days. It's nice as I never miss doing things because VM deleted it.
