Re: No voicemail notification

Hey @Dbm1,

 

Welcome to our Community Smiley

 

That's definitely odd. Before we take a look at your account, can you please confirm that your voicemail is all set up and callers are able to reach it and leave voice messages?

 

Also, just to make sure, do you have the Voicemail notifications enabled in the device's Settings?

 

Let us know and we'll take it from there.

Re: No voicemail notification

Thanks for the update @Dbm1,

 

Just to confirm with you, are both you and your wife's lines with Fido, and on the same account?

 

If that is the case, we can take a closer look at your account to go over the features of each price plan.  We would be able to confirm that everything is in order on our end as well.

 

You can reach out to us for further assistance at these channels, or we can send you a PM here.

Re: No voicemail notification

I don't get any notification when I have a voice mail, so my voice gets full and then the important message can't be left for me from work or family memembers becuase the caller hears that my voice mail box is full. 

Now I have to press on "1" to go to my voice mail and delete all those messages (mostly from telemarketers and not in English language!) .  

I used to get the notification from day one with my older phone and this one that I had it for 2+ years now.

 

I think a person at Fido did something that caused this.  This issue started after when I called Fido and said I don't have any messages on my mail box but people can't leave a message for me. So she reset something and now I don't get any notification!

 

This is very disappointing.  I hope someone can help.

Re: No voicemail notification

I've moved your post to this thread @EFTEE as it does deal with a similar topic Smiley

 

Can you please let us know what type of phone you have?


Also, are you on mini voicemail (the free one) or do you have the $7 value pack with Premium voicemail to text.


Let us know and we'll go from there!

Re: No voicemail notification

Hi Nick,

I have been with Fido for over 10 years and always had BB phones, the latest is PRIV that I had it for over 2 years now.  Never had any issues like this. Up until 2018 I used to have the value pack but since I didn't want the "message to text" and not needing more than few messages, I was told that I can go with mini (3 messages).  This was few months ago.  I sill received the notification after I moved to mini voicemail for a while.

At somepoint a family member wanted to leave an important message for me and sent a text saying my voice mail was full.  I checked my voicemail and it said no messages! but those calling me heard my box was full. Then I called Fido and someone tried to fix the issue (probably by resetting something). From then on I don't get any notification and my voicemail gets full without me knowing about it.  Those messages that fill up the box could be from telemarkters that I don't answer their calls or from family/work who had important messages for me.  This issue is forcing me to check my voice mail few times a day by dialing 1 to delete unwanted messages.

Re: No voicemail notification

Thanks for confirming @EFTEE!

 

With mini voicemail, you should be notified by a text message from the number +18.

 

We're going to check things out together, keep an eye on your inbox as I'm sending you a message.
