Voice Messages On Mobile Phones

Recommended Posts

If someone rings me on my mobile number and I do not answer it it automatically goes to voicemail. People then leave a voice mail and I get a notification that I have a voicemail.

But what happens when someone rings me, I do not answer, my phone goes to voice mail and they say nothing - i.e. do not leave a voicemail. Do I then get a notification of a voicemail? I presume not?

When I get those automated callers from private numbers - ambulance chasing solicitors - I do not answer and presumably my phone then goes to voicemail but I get never a notification that some cold caller automated message has left me a voicemail. So I assume that the way the system works is that if no one says anything to my voicemail the system can detect no voice and hence does not notify me of a voicemail even though the voicemail system was actually activated. If that makes any sense?

I only ask as I fear that a nutty ex is getting divorced after 8 years of marriage - I saw her place a profile up on a dating site prior to Christmas and, simply because I was online at the time, I saw her profile pics for a few minutes before they were hidden, when the profile was created.

Around the same time I began to receive silent calls on my mobile number. This stopped over the Christmas period - no surprise - and then began again this morning.

I am now not answering any calls whose number I do not know but I am just curious about how the above voicemail system works.

Any ideas?

I don't like voicemails,. They usually say "I rang but you were out"!

Thanks - have switched off voicemail.

I have been unable to do that! I specifically asked for that, when I first got a cellphone. Orange told me this was not possible. Maybe I will be luckier now I have a new smartphone I cannot work.
