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:

I thought you'd proposed this idea before 2015 Andrew? But I've supported it again.

I doubt that Giff Gaff provide this service themselves.  I suspect they are at the mercy of O2's policy.   I'd also note that Virgin voicemail boxes expire if you don't use them - I think they get disabled completely.  I think it is longer than two months, though.

Assuming that old mails are purged after a period, I can' think of any current commercial reason for imposing such a restriction, but it may well be the case that the voicemail equipment is very old and was designed at a time when disk space was much more expensive.

I had no idea this happened with this limit, I thought it just randomly reset itself. My wife uses the SIM on my account and gets very few voicemails, I was asked to check one she had received since her phone didn't have the GG shortcut code setup and I had to completely setup voicemail again for her just to listen to the message.

GG please once someone has setup voicemail and its pin on their account please just leave it alone.
