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 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.

What a bizarre set up! This shouldn't even have happened in the first place to need fixing.

Why "looking at it". Do it!

Q: Who thought this was a good idea?

completely agree. my partner who has been a giff gaffer for a while just said when I told her" OMG Id forgotten about that" and promptly phoned her voicemail..

This idea has already been suggested multiple times before.

Add your support to this existing idea that would solve the 60 day issue completely and is being looked into by giffgaff:
