UPDATE: Telstra have confirmed the service. It’s called MessageBank Plus, and will cost $5 a month. If you want to sign up, here’s how.
It’s worth noting that the service is free on Vodafone, so Telstra’s decision to start charging for it isn’t going to win it any adulation.
Reports say that the service is due to officially launch today, but we haven’t actually received official word from Telstra about it yet – we’ll update with confirmation when we do.
In the meantime the question has to be asked – would you pay $5 a month for visual voicemail?
