Vodafone’s rollout of visual voicemail for iPhones hasn’t exactly gone smoothly, but the company maintains everything will be working by Friday.
We reported on the visual voicemail rollout earlier today, but several commenters have noted that it wasn’t working for them and that call centre staff either had no clue or said it could be a week or more before the service was working. When Lifehacker contacted Vodafone for comment, we were told that the launch had been bought forward, but that anyone who had up-to-date software would be seeing the service by Friday.
How seriously those claims can be taken is a matter of contention. Vodafone’s official line and what customers actually get told often diverges widely — most notably in the case of how its iPhone data plans work, a textbook example of corporate BS — so for now all current iPhone customers can do is wait and hope.
