| | Getting SMS for voicemail... what gives?
Please Login to Remove!
I've just realized that I get triple notified whenever someone calls and leaves a VM on my 8900 (Rogers f/w). I get a missed call notification (ok), then a VM indicator icon (ok) and then an SMS saying that I have voicemail - all three messages come in simultaneously. Isn't that a bit redundant? Is there any way to stop getting SMS whenever someone leaves me a VM? I'd like to distinguish between a true SMS and a VM.
Which leads me to another question. Is there any way to separate a dropped VM ring tone from an SMS ring tone? Right now, because I get an SMS when someone leaves a VM, the notification is only the SMS ring tone which is set in the ringer profiles which is annoying because I can't distinguish whether I got a real SMS or if someone really left a VM.
This issue is a bit worrisome to me (explain in a sec), as I'm in charge to revamp the cell phone holdings of our employees (55 total) and there's a push for Blackberries.
Why I find that SMS thing worrisome is because the employees many times rely on VM being sent without having any other notification active.
Is this a network issue or BB issue? I've search high-and-low in the phone for a VM notification setting, but there is nothing, which leads me to believe that it's a Blackberry issue.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
