I've been lurking for a while now, and finally had a question that I thought would be worth discussing. It's simply this: If your phone is off or your phone drops service, how do you think the visual voicemail will respond after it regains service/powers up? Here are my concerns- we've all been (I think) in an area where we either lose service temporarily, or where the phone just happens to not register a missed call which results in you getting a voicemail notification. So... no missed call, but yet a new voicemail notification. Sometimes, there is not even a new notification until a few messages have been stacked up. How will the iPhone's VM system work? It stands to reason that the new VVM uses EDGE to retrieve the voicemails, as there is no inbox to call; and in the videos, messages play automagically when they are touched (which suggests that the messages are 1st downloaded, then stored locally on the phone). What happens when you don't get a data connection? I'm assuming that the ANI (or caller ID) is stored relative to the person calling, which then cross references your local address book to provide a name of the person calling. Similarly I'm guessing that if no name is found, the system simply displays the number, or lack thereof (ie., Restricted or Unknown Number). Any thoughts? Since you can't call in to check your voicemail as you do now, how do you think the system handles it when you're outside a coverage area? Do you have any concerns of "not receiving all voicemails" if coverage drops and/or (assuming they are transferred via a data connection) there is no available data connection? Visual VoiceMail is one of the features I am looking forward to the most, as sometimes I ignore calls on purpose, miss calls as a result of me not being near my phone, or just don't get a missed call due to either the phone or coverage drops. I'll frequently have 6 to 11 voicemails stacked up, and VVM is a great way to be able to listen to the ones that I want to. I just wanna make certain that I'll be getting ALL my messages in a timely manner. Thoughts? Other concerns?
