Re: Voicemail Not Working

I also have the GE 6.0 Skype phone.  Just started my service in February, apparently at the same time the voicemail service went down.  SKYPE, THERE ARE OTHER SERVICES AVAILABLE AND ANGRY CUSTOMERS LOSE PATIENCE QUICKLY.  Get this fixed before you start losing business and have to start refunding money.

Re: Voicemail Not Working

I have the same problem for months now.  The only way around that worked is to sign out of skype on the GE DECT 6.0 when I leave my house.

Re: Voicemail Not Working - get a Google number

I have a thought for all of you folk where Skype voicemail is not working.  Mine is working, but I am NOT using it.  Instead, I have all calls that I do not answer forwarded to a Google Voice number.  Set that number to pick up immediately, and take a message.

 

You have to be careful that your Skype number is NOT registered at Google Voice for call forwarding, otherwise it will ask for your pin, assuming you are trying to retrieve your messages.

 

When a call comes in, it sends me an Email, with a voice recording, and a transcription of the text, as well as it can do.  I also get a notice on my iPod / iPhone immediately, with the option to pick up the message if I want.  You can also check for messages by calling your own Google number from any phone, and hitting *, and entering your pin.

 

Works slick.  And it is free!  Google voice has a bunch of other features too.

Re: Voicemail Not Working

I have a similar problem with "no answer" call forwarding.  It rings and rings and, finally, after 12 rings it fowords to my number.  When the GE phone is signed out, it fowards after a few rings, which is the way I set the settings.  So, it has something to do with the Skype / GE software and it's very frustrating because I'm trying to use it as a business line.

Re: Voicemail Not Working

Voicemail only work with default setting. Since customer support is not fixing this issue I will change service.

Re: Voicemail Not Working

Yep, same thing here.  I was having problems with calls immediately going into VM, Skype customer service gave me a fix for that - it took quite a bit of time.  Worked fine for six weeks, now, no VM at all.  What the heck are those folks DOING????

Re: Voicemail Not Working

I just spent ANOTHER hour on chat w/Skype, they know all about the VM problem, but can not fix it.  They offered me a one Euro voucher by way of compensation - US$1.2367.  Can you believe it!  I'm looking for another provider, anybody got any suggestions?
