Just read in the Vodafone forum (after searching for updates on Visual Voicemail, to no avail) that you can request to be notified of Voicemail messages via the 'red dot icon' on the iPhone Phone app, rather than via text message (I think XT does this by default?).

Anyone know how to get this working? I don't fancy my chances of getting a CSR to do it via 777 (not that I doubt their skill, just that I don't quite know how to explain it to them over the phone).

I found what I guess is the thread

http://forum.vodafone.co.nz/topic/172-visual-voicemail-on-iphone/page__hl__visual%20voicemail__st__40

But it doesn't seem to have an explanation there at all. Only people asking how to implement it...

I would like to know how to do this. I hate SMS notifications of Voicemail...

Jon

How much money would it cost for vodafone to implement the visual voicemail feature that other carriers worldwide have? $100,000? Maybe vodafone should startup a donation drive on kickstarter.com.

All sorted for me.  Tried via online chat (vodafone website), but the person had no idea despite forwarding him the link to the forum.

Rang 777 and CSR got it sorted for me.

Thanks again John for all your help here and on the vodafone forum.  You always seem to get stick and abuse from a view individuals, but luckily for some of us you keep coming back!!

Your doing a great job, keep it up!!

Mat

A CSR can do it but they might not understand what you mean
