Lately....was jolted out of my much needed slumber at about midnight n morning 7am a couple of times by this blardy telekom voicemail ringback notifying me that there is a voicemail for me to retrieve. Worst still this mail is hours late , outdated and of no more importance other than to jolt me up to answer at this unearthly hour of mine.:mad:

Anyone out there facing this problem as well..?

A few questions...damn..n I did not even asked for that service..
Who sets or decide this callback ring time....?
What sort of hidden cost that will be shafted later at me...?
Who the hell come up with this fine idea....?

i have the same problem. i called telekoms and was told it's a trial period and they are still at testing stage. did not ask about the charges tho..
i think only those who subscribed to caller id will have this problem.

initially it freaks me out when i saw my house nbr displayed on the phone when it rang....

for those not in the know but with caller id, it's yr own nbr calling you back on the same phone!

I wasn't shocked because of that but to ring me back at 7am n midnight......oh gosh ...it must be something of emergency proportion to warrant that. Mind you, I'll miss a few heartbeats hearing that at such hour. :eek:

that's cos you don't have a caller id. imagine seeing your own phone nbr displayed when the phone rings....like a scene from twilight zone!
