    Hi, Does anyone know of a workaround to avoid TMobile (UK) voicemail charges? Someone suggested I set my own number to dial and collect voicemail and it would be free....but it still charges me :(

    Just wondering if other Tmobile UK users had found a way to avoid the charges? :D

    Dialing your own number isnt free but it will take the charge from your minutes allowance.

    Switch to another network that doesn't charge for voicemail (so, that's any apart from t-mobile I think).

    Or use something like hullomail for your voicemail, you can then call a geographical number to retrieve your voicemail or use their android visual voicemail client or listen to them in your email.

    Yeah that's what I was told would happen but it still charged. Itemised bill says "partners" and charges @ 12p per call incl vat :rolleyes:

    Sadly, not an option since I have just started an 18month contract.

    Thanks Paul, wasn't aware of that option...just googled hullomail and will give that a try...tnx a lot :)
