Visual voicemail — allowing you to see, organise and listen to your voicemails without dialling up some bitchy voicemail woman — is a common feature in North America. It’s a nice feature, to be sure, and EE’s introducing it to lucky 4G customers — but does anyone still actually use voicemail?
I don’t know about you, but a quick poll of Giz HQ shows that none of us touch voicemail with a virtual bargepole if we can help it. It’s a relic of a byegone era, before texts or emails really existed, and people called each other with landlines. Eww.
What about you, though? Are you the sort of person who loves filling up voicemail recorders will hours of drivel, or the more considerate type who never spams his friends with unintelligible static-laden crap? Let us know below!
Oh, and if EE’s visual voicemail does interest you: you have to be a 4G customer on EE (or Orange or T-Mobile); just text “visual voicemail” to 150. [TechRadar]
