I'm wondering if Visual Voicemail for Blackberry is a feature that might be available in the future. Bell currently offers it to their customers, as does AT&T in the States.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
If your talking about recieving your voicemails like a email or text message you can already get that through Rogers, on my Blackberry account I have it and its called SpinVox I believe it takes my voicemail and sends it to me as a text message very nifty little feature; however it sometimes gets words wrong!
Rogers Does have Visual Voicemail for Iphone but not Blackberry. Spinvox isnt really "Visual Voicemail" is completely something else.
Visual voicemail for iPhone lets you see a list of your messages and choose which ones to listen to or delete, without having to dial in to listen to prior messages or voice instructions. The Phone button on the Home screen of your iPhone shows the total number of missed calls and unheard voicemail messages you have.
How Voicemail to Text works:
As you can see Spinvox ( Voicemail to Text) is different than Visual Voicemail
I actually already have SpinVox, so I am quite familiar with it.
I was inquiring about Visual Voicemail for Blackberry. In the past, Rogers has seemed quite invested in bringing new features to customers (Name Display, TalkSpot, WhoCalled come to mind) so I was wondering why they haven't implemented visual voicemail for Blackberry, especially since Bell did.
Why is it that the voicemail notification icon (the little figure 8 or cassette) doesn't work at all when voicemail to text is enabled?
I can get 10 voicemails, all will be recorded and converted to text and sent to me, but if I delete the messages that contain the voicemail texts, the voicemails still remain on the the Rogers voicemail without any notification. They then have to be deleted by calling voicemail and deleting each one.
I understand, but it is annoying and should be fixed by Rogers since voice mails will accumulate on the server until they are deleted there.
With people receiving voicemail texts, they will forget that the actual voicemails still exist and need to be cleared out otherwise the mailbox will fill up.
