Busy trawling the web this evening and I saw an article on marcforrest.com that Vodacom has finally released Visual Voicemail.
I think this is one of the nicest features of the iPhone and I’ve been bitterly disappointed that it has not been available. the basic premise is that instead of listening to all your voices (normal 121) I can actually SEE who called me, and choose who to listen to. This feature will cost R10.00 per month, which is a little disappointing. I really don’t see why Vodacom needs to charge for a service like this.
Apparently, as an iPhone user, simply SMS VVM ON to switch it on or VVM OFF to turn it off again. I’ve given it a shot and keep getting error messages, so I’ll see what Vodacom Help can do for me.
