It’s been said before but I’m saying it again, please giffgaff can you start supporting visual voicemail on IOS. It’s so old now and a standard feature of most networks! 

Kudos costs me nothing, so I give it freely .

I started writing a blog on design, technology and the future Take a look and let me know what you think!

This identical idea in labs https://labs.giffgaff.com/idea/14167393/visual-voicemail has been languishing in the "New Idea" state for 4.5 years.

 

So I don't think it will be implemented any time soon, sorry.

It requires support on the voicemail server platform.

 

Considering how noone other than Apple supports it, I doubt it's worth the investment.

@stephenpperry @shabazmoqsud

I doubt if giffgaff will ever support Visual Voicemail natively but HulloMail does the job for me just fine Smiley Happy.

@shabazmoqsud Visual voicemail enables you to see who's left a message and listen to them via an app like interface and email. Some systems also transcribe the message and you see it as text. Very useful if a carrier doesn't support wifi calling because the message can be delivered by email.

I have better things to do than play voice tag, which is all that voicemail achieves
