Voicemail 'Stutter' Dial Tone Fixed Line

dob1

I have voicemail on my fixed line.  I used to get a special 'stutter' dial tone whenever there was a new message.  Since we moved to NBN that feature has disappeared.  I tried 'chat' and all I go after a half hour of waiting was "that feature doesn't exist"!  But it used to exist!  Now the Fixed line help page gives some instructions about

 

"The notification setting 'Call Me' has been turned on. 'Call Me' is not compatible with Home Phone voicemail.To turn it off, go to the Main Menu (Option 8), then to the Notification menu (Option 7) and select 'SMS Me'.Sounds wrong, but this is the default setting for Home voicemail and ensures that you're notified when you have new voicemail."

 

Tried this and got to the 'option 7' only to be told "SMS Me is on" and there is no way to turn the notification to anything else and as it's a fixed line, SMS doesn't work!   There is no option to enter a mobile for notifications.

 

All this has me frustrated as I have voicemail, but it's pretty useless if there is no notification for a fixed line that there is a message waiting!  Do I just have to try it manually every so often?  That's pretty stupid!  Can anyone help?

Hey @dob1, I've been digging around and found this, which you've quoted above so we may need to take a look at things on our end. Can you send through a private message with the following details so we can take a look:

 

- Full name on account

- Phone/account number

- DOB

- Are you the account holder: Y/N
