Hi there

Can anyone tell me if I use the generic voice mail number as a magic number if that'll stop me being charged?

Cheers in advance

    Don't know about that but if you have a smartphone then use Hullomail app to avoid paying for them.

    I used that when with Orange as they charged over 40p per minute for voicemail. Hullomail is also much better than the standard voicemail offering and I would use it even where voicemail retrieval was free.

    No you can't, sorry.
    I spent 25 years in the mobile industry, from 1994 to 2019. Worked for indies as well as the big networks, in their stores also in contact centres. I also hold a degree in telecoms engineering so I like to think I know what I’m talking about 😂
