iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

Visual voicemail is now apparently available on all 4GEE tariffs.  Anyone with an iPhone on 4GEE you need to send an SMS with the words iPhone visual to 150 to activate.

 

Orange users on a £36+ tairff can also get it (same activation process).

 

T-Mobile users apperently have to wait a few more months yet as TM need to move everyone onto the Orange voicemail platform first.

Re: iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

Is there an additional charge for this service. 

 

I have a 4G contract at £46 a month... would this be free for me?

When you click on your voicemail icon, it should ask you to first set up a PIN.

Re: iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

I've sent the 'iPhone visual' message to 150 several times, but have yet to receive an acknowledgement.

I've also connected my handset to my Mac to see of their are any carrier updates.

For those who have it working:
1. Did you get an acknowledgement SMS back?
2. What carrier version are you running?

Thanks.

Re: iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

Just spoke with an EE advisor; as I have a price plan change scheduled for my next billing cycle date (shifting to 20GB plan), this prevents me from activating Visual Voicemail.

Will hold off until 9th Feb (billing cycle date) and then try and activate after that.

Re: iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

Hi all

 

Thought you could do with some clarification about Visual Voicemail...

 

Visual Voicemail is now available for iPhone 5 customers on 4GEE plans.

 

New iPhone 5 customers on 4GEE plans can get visual voicemail activated in store or online, while existing iPhone 5 customers on a 4GEE plan can simply text “iPhone visual” to 150, and the service will be activated within 24 hours. UK data used to download visual voicemail messages is free-of-charge.

 

Visual Voicemail will be available on Orange plans on or above £35, but not until 28 February 2013. No date has yet been set for T-Mobile customers but it's pencilled in for "a later stage".

 

Fore more information visit www.ee.co.uk/vvm

 

Hope this helps!

Re: iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

I have authorised this and it's showing up in my ee. But on my phone whenever I go to voicemail it says can not authorise access. Looking at other forums this is an carrier issue I'm on 6.1 with carrier settings of 14.0

Re: iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

- Fully up-to-date software

- Texted 150, and have had confirmation reply

- Restarted phone..

 

Still not appearing as VVM - is there somewhere in settings I need to turn VVM 'on'?

 

 

Many thanks.

You have done everything correct.
It should just be there now. Try leaving yourself a voicemail ! That may kick it in !

Re: iPhone visual voicemail now available on 4GEE

It's working now. :smileyhappy:

 

Didn't have do anything special, it just presented password and greeting options the next time I went into voicemail.

 

Easy.
