eSim and Visual Voicemail News?

Highlighted

Any news on either of these?

 

Sorry to say I think it's been really poor a large company like Vodafone still has no eSim for phone support yet sells the watch with eSim, and Visual Voicemail has been coming for over a year now.

 

Considering O2 of all networks have both of this, they even have Visual Voicemail on Pixel phones with Android.

Hi @Mobilemandan 

 

Still no further new on the eSim from this previous thread: https://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/iOS/Esim/td-p/2643467It's the same for visual voicemail.  

 

Totally agree Vodafone are behind the other network introducing the features to customers.

Vodafone will not have either of those two things if it does not have it by now. I mean Visual Voicemail? Is it not like 2008 feature?

 

Unfortunatly, if it was not for the best roaming (I mean really, nobody comes close coverage and price wise) I'd be gone a long time ago.

I'd be inclined to agree with your voicemail point. But that's probably as a user who doesn't have it activated. Not anywhere near the top of my list.

As for eSim though, I would say the opposite. I think all networks must be on the journey to introduction as it allows the manufacturers to save space which allows them to make phones smaller / thinner etc. Also it helps with the whole making phones fully waterproof. Easier without a sim drawer. 

I think in a few years from now eSim will be the norm. After all, the sim itself has just got smaller and smaller during its lifetime. This is the logical next step. 

All they need to do is ensure you have the option to rebuild your profile on demand. I read from others that if you delete by accident, you're a little snookered.

I find the lack of clarity annoying though. A year ago they claimed visual voicemail had launched, then that it was launching in August 12 2019, then that it has been enabled for testing and it would be soon. It’s almost July 2020 and nothing, the support page is gone (although there’s another one with almost no info) and their Twitter team keeps saying “it’s coming, it’s coming”. 
Vodafone is ##~## at managing expectations and that creates frustration. At this pace we’ll find the vaccine for Covid before Vodafone works out visual voicemail. It’s ridiculous
