Is it just Vodaphone that’s the problem?
Yes. Vodafone have a very basic digital landline service. Be warned, if your Vodafone Digital Voice profile isn't online and registered, anyone dialling your landline number is greeted with a period of silence followed by the pre-recorded message "Sorry it has not been possible to connect your call, please try again later.".
I have been working with and using VoIP since 2004 and even back then I had Voicemail, Caller Display, Call waiting, Three Way Calling, Call Hold, Call Transfer, BLF, Call Barring... I could go on!
While Vodafone provides me with a digital landline along side my FTTP service, I don't use it. I use Voipfone along side a Yealink W76P!
I had assumed that moving to Vodaphone I would get better or at least as good as my previous landline options. I understand that with BR and others I would still be able to use voicemail on my land line. Does this mean that Vodaphone is just substandard? I need to know because I might change to another provider.
