The Voicemail of the $10 plan

Hi,

 

I am completely aware that checking voicemail from that $10 plan phone deducts in-plan minutes.

 

Can someone confirm if checking voicemail from other phone (by calling that that $10 plan phone# and press '*') also deducts minutes, or not?

 

Thank you!

Hi @drsiha, Calling in to check your voicemail from a land line, or another phone of any kind does not use your plan minutes.

From experience it doesn't and that is how I used to go around that when I was on limited voice plan back in the dayz

Thank you for your reply.

One more question.

According to this post https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Announcements/Plan-updates-new-10-limited-talk-and-te... , so if people call me and leave a message, it will deduct my minutes, correct?

No, the FAQ is unclear. You use minutes in your plan if you are calling from your mobile phone and you leave a voicemail on someone else's mailbox.

 

If someone is calling your mobile phone, and you don't pick up and it goes to voicemail, your minutes on your own plan do not get used.

There are two places that show calls:

1. the overview page

2. the usage pages

The first one is the one that reflects your consumption. You should not see that number increment when someone leaves you a voicemail message. You *will* see the record of the call in the usage pages.

This may not be written, declared policy...but it is reality.

You can also get around using minutes with the call forward trick Cat Wink
