I was I admit a little hesitent to do this after reading some of the posts early in the year.

Must say that Orcon has obviously learned from their earlier problems.

Duncan. Well done by your staff .  All went smoothly at Papatoetoe.

Still using my ADSL1 DSE router.  Download speed about the same upload now at 512Kb.

A couple of comments

1. No visual messaage waiting when a voicemail message is left only broken dialtone. 

2. This from wifey.  When I recorded our voicemail greeting there was no way to play it back,  Had to ring ourselve to hear it.

 

Apart from those two small points so far quite happy.

 

PS.  I prefer the Orcon single ring to the old Telecom 2 rings on incoming calls..

You mean your phone used to get a little icon on it telling you when you've got a message?  My panasonic is the same.  I told Orcon about it when I signed up (around April) but nothing was ever done about it.  It's annoying to have to pick it up to hear if there's a message, especially if the caller id breaks so you don't even know you have a missed call sometimes.  It's not too bad, though.

As for the message thing, I'm sure there's an option to replay the greeting.  I know because I just redid it today.  I had to practice a bunch of times to get it right Wink

P.S. I didn't think they used the single ring anymore?  Everyone complained about how it was different I guess, and they changed it.  I quite liked the different ring too...

On my fones  they have red LEDs that flashed when a MWI was set.  Now have to check for dial tone..

I am pretty sure there is an option to replay the greeting too. It has been a few months since I set mine up at home, so I can't remember exactly, but I will try to remember to double check for you over the weekend.

There are currently 5 exchanges around Auckland that have the single ring profile. This is directly linked to the problem we were having with caller ID not working intermittently. The fix that we are deploying for that issue also introduces the single ring profile. The reason we didn't spot this earlier is that most digital phones generate the ring themselves (so you can set custom ring tones and things), but if you have an analogue phone it will play this single ring.

We are working on getting that changed back to the standard ring, but if you guys like it, maybe we shouldn't! :)

Hi Duncan,

 

You are correct.  Wifey didn't listen to all the prompts.

 

One good thing now is that we get a 100% success rate with CLID  being displayed on my Cidco fones where as on the Telecom line it was about 80%.  Got lots of "Incomplete Data" messages..
