Just read Nate's blog post vodafone voice mail to email free which explains how to set up redirecting to get voicemail in email.

In Nate's example, does the call redirect occur at the phone level or at the telco network level? I see it is set on the phone, but just want to be sure of the effect.

My iPhone 3G has a simple call forward on/off option which I assume is all or nothing.

By the way, do the standard GSM redirect codes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_forwarding) work on the Vodafone network?

I am often out of coverage and getting voicemail in email messages would help a lot. Getting notification only of voice mail in email messages would be almost as good.

But are call diversions to best mates free?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

coffeebaron: But are call diversions to best mates free?

As I understand it - redirected calls are charged at the same rate as outgoing calls from your phone. The bestmates addon allows you to nominate one number for (mostly) free calling. In Nate's solution you combine the two.

Be good to get that confirmed, as in the past, my understanding was that diversions are chargeable even to a best mate.

I deal with a customer of mine who has a vodafone homephone wireless box and redirects to his mobile phone when he's out and he has them both in the same vodafone family group and he doesn't get charged for diverts. Not quite the same as a bestmate but I would imagine a divert to a bestmate would be free too

Bestmates are "person to person" IIRC

Seems to indicate diverts will use plan minutes, even to best mate.
