free voicemail with or without credit

i think we should receive our voicemails free with or without credit as long as you have topped up in the last 3 months, there is nothing more frustrating than missing a call and you have used up all your mins, i think this could give giffgaff another edge again in the market.

Even if voicemail is free to pickup, having voicemail turned on will have cost each of your callers up to 20p every time they call you and the voicemail answers the call. Worse, they get charged that 20p even if they have no message to leave.

Isn't it a bit of a paradox that people resent paying 8p (or much less if they have a goodybag) to pick up any number of messages, yet have no qualms about charging their callers an unnecessary 20p for every single wasted call?

In most cases, the message says nothing useful anyway apart from that somebody tried to call you, which you could have got from a missed calls list.

So I think rather than asking for free voicemail pickup, you should be turning your voicemail off (or better still, that should be the default) and let them send a text if they really want to leave a message when you're not able to answer.

Totally agree, I recently put £10 credit on my phone intending to buy two £5 goody bags to cover the next two months but before I had an opportunity to purchase a goodbag I missed a call and got a voicemail, now I have not got enough credit left for my two goody bags.

Is it really taking almost 2 years? Come on, GiffGaff - this is ludicrous.
