Voicemail Notifications (iPhone)

I've just joined Plusnet Mobile.

How can I enable voicemail notifications on my iPhone?

I do get a red dot by the voicemail symbol if I open up the phone app, but is there a way of getting a more obvious notification? SMS, Banner or even an App Badge?

 

Simon.

What notification did you get with your previous provider? As those things are device specific, you will have to check you iPhone settings.

Morning jab1,

I had SMS notifications from Three.

What notifications should I be expecting from Plusnet?

Simon.

As I don't use PN mobile, I can't really answer that question, but thinking about it you can set Banners/sounds/badges notifications on the phone, although they will not be voicemail specific.

Plusnet Mobile doesn’t support visual voicemail

Just rang support, and been told I won't get any notifications and just to dial 555 regularly.

Unimpressed.

Don't you check missed calls?

Not if it's a number I don't recognize. Do you?

No, but I would check for voice-mails - if my mobile phone provider didn't send text notifications, as Vodafone didn't when I was with them.

While you can’t check your voicemail visually you’ll get notifications as a red dot next to the voicemail icon on the phone app and a notification bar on the home screen

It's the notification bar on the home screen that I'm wanting! How to enable that?

It pops up when you have voicemail but it can be dismissed and won’t show again until you get another voicemail or go out then in of signal.

Make sure notifications are enabled for the phone:

Settings > Phone > Notifications > Select allow notifications and customise the alerts

OK, thanks. These are the settings I had.
