After my last post about VodacomVisual Voicemail, there was a lot of confusion sorrounding if Visual Voicemail had actually been launched by Vodacom. According to sources the product was still in Beta, but a couple of people of managed to activate the service, albeit at R10 a month.
Press release from Vodacom:
Vodacom is pleased to announce the launch of Visual Voicemail, available from 1 April 2010. Visual Voicemail enables Vodacom Contract, Top Up and Prepaid customers who use the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS smartphones to view their Voicemail messages displayed in a ‘list format’, in the same way as they would view their email messages – and it’s FREE for the first 30 days.
Vodacom is offering a FREE trial to Visual Voicemail from 1 April to 31 May 2010, which means all customers with iPhones can try out the service at no charge during this period.
Lets hope they can support the product, and hopefully realise that they are the ONLY service provider in the WORLD actually charging for the service.
