free voip voicemail ?

Discussion in 'UK VOIP' started by [email protected], Aug 9, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    because I don't have the possibility to set up a asterix server here I'm
    looking for a free VOIP service with free voicemail where
    I can upload my .wav file to, which should be played when a call reaches
    that voicemail. nothing more, nothing less :)
    preferable the account should be reachable under a geografic number or
    direct sip access so that I can forward my Snom190
    to it.

    Who knows such a service??

    thanks in advance,

    Don't take very much to make you happy then I wouldn't recommend
    Sipgate to my worst enemy .

    Of course, you're absolutely right, it doesn't take much to make me
    happy: 100% reliability at zero cost, that's all it's taken.

    As I am also interested in the Voicemail can you please be more specific
    about the reliability. How long have you had an account? Had you not have a
    single failure including German speaking voices I read about etc?

  7. very nice that you've been very happy with them, but you cannot upload a
    ..wav file which is player
    when someone reaches the voicemail. this is mainly where I have to use it

    Not long, to be honest, less than a month. The only "problem" I've had
    is the weird mixture of voices (in English) when you call the answering
    service. But it's free and it's a geographic number, so it suits my

    I've had no complaints from anyone unable to contact me (and anyone
    calling my number would let me know if they'd had problems), and I've
    never been unable to retrieve my voicemail.

    Ah, right, sorry. I thought you'd be able to play the .wav down the
    phone and record it that way.

    When you have had an account with them as long has I had then come
    back here and talk about 100 reliability at zero cost for starters how
    can you talk about reliability when the voicemail has not been
    reliable from the word go . If you are getting Sipgate for zero cost
    have they started giving calls to every phone in the world for NOTHING
    now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .

    I'm sorry, if I'd known you had a reading disability, I wouldn't have
    used long words like 'reliability'.

    I haven't paid Sipgate a penny. Who said anything about making calls?
    We're talking about voicemail.

  12. You mean by dialling 50000 then 0, 1 ?

    Strangely iirc I know how to get a rockwell-based modem to play wav
    files down a phone line, (if it's one whose firmware allows you to use
    the decompress audio command).

    Mind you, it only works with PCM unsigned linear iirc. (can't remember
    the rate, was getting on for 10 years ago that I last did it).

  13. Well, as far as making calls, looking at the sipgate 1000 section of my
    account and billing page:

    State active
    valid until: 30.08.2005 00:16
    Extended: automatic
    Calls: 91
    used: 943 Minutes
    remaining: 57 Minutes

    And I haven't had a problem with a single minute of it.

    Dexter Guest

    By own hardware you mean a Vonage router from Staples I presume
    then you will be charged 9.99 and providing you cancel within 14 days
    you will get your money back .

    I mean using a PAP2 i bought, its not from Staples. And what if i want
    it for a month, and then want to leave? It states they give all
    customers free hardware, but i dont want it! I'm confoozed

    They will send you a pap2 (they do not GIVE anything) which you have
    to return before the 14 days are up then they close your account and
    give you your refund . Now if you intend using an unlocked PAP 2 then
    from what Vonage cus support told me earlier this evening it cannot be
    used in the UK at the moment for a Vonage connection . I was thinking
    of getting one has I am giving thought to a third Vonage line now I
    have got shut of Sipgate .
