60 day voicemail frustration

By: andreww | 14-05-2013 16:26


A little known fact is that if you don't access your giffgaff voicemail for 60 days any customisation is lost (no pin, no personalised greeting etc) and you're not informed it has happened :smileysad:


If having gone to the trouble of setting these, to find if you did need to urgently check voicemail from another phone if would be very annoying to find you can't!


This is idea is very simple - once a PIN and/or a personalised greeting has been set - just leave it there without any time limits for it to be removed :smileywink:

Makes sense to me

This is SO annoying! I get a voice mail every so often and every flippin time I have to reset the PIN. I didn't even realise my personal greeting had gone too. 

A million up votes from me if it were possible!

yeah, this is a no brainer really.. 60 days is far too less - should be more like 6 months

Agreed also.

I agree. I always wondered why I need to input a new pin each time I have a message. It's quite annoying doing it everytime as I don't get that many messages.

I supported the original idea when first posted - and obviously still support it now. Just how long does it take to "look into it"??

It would be even better if giffgaff didn't mess with my voicemail at all once I've taken the time to set it up.

This is completely bizarre, but explains why every time I call voicemail I'm asked to set a PIN. What is the PIN even for if every time I access voicemail I'm asked to set it?

I'm not keen on personalising my greeting because I don't want people to leave voice messages in the first place - although that's partly because I don't want to jump through the hoops to set a new PIN AGAIN to access those messages! It's a bit of a joke.
