It is a service for use by grown ups.........Which is why I provided him with a link that answers all questions.....
If you know people that talk to themselves for five minutes, I suspect they might need help!! 😉
Unfortunately, the first thing the link mentions is "free" visual voicemail, but it isn't!!
It assumes that it doesn't cost the user anymore money as they are on a mobile contract, that has a 'minutes' allowance, which it uses to fund the service.
Though if you are on PAYG it'll cost you 8 pence per minute, for every message left.
I was just trying to help, as when I used the service for the first time on PAYG, I wondered why it was costing me when it said it was "free".
Thanks for the last comment too. I don't know too many people who will talk to themselves for five minutes. Those ones usually just type there answers on a forum, instead... 😀
