How does MessageBank® Plus work with iPhone?

MessageBank® Plus makes it easier to sort and listen to voice messages on your iPhone.


With MessageBank Plus you can:

  1. Listen to voicemails directly on your iPhone without having to dial 101
  3. See your voicemail messages presented in a list with the number that left the message, the date and message length. See at a glance who called you, if you have their name stored. Private numbers aren’t shown
  5. Listen to the message you want to hear first, without going through them all
  7. Replay the message if you missed anything.


Good to know

With MessageBank Plus, the voicemails on your iPhone are not deleted automatically

MessageBank Plus is charged at $5 per month (IOS 4.3 or greater only)
