Telstra's MessageBank Plus service for the iPhone

Telstra is finally offering visual voicemail to its customers who use an iPhone, but will charge $5 a month for the service.

Instead of listening to voicemails one by one, the visual voicemail service allows you to select individual voice messages and play them back in any order, as many times as you like.

From today, Telstra customers with an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 3G can access visual voicemail, known as 'MessageBank Plus' on Telstra. The MessageBank Plus service requires an Apple iPhone running iOS4.3 or later, connected to a Telstra post-paid mobile voice plan. The service is not available for Telstra pre-paid customers.

Visual voicemail was first touted as a key selling feature of the original iPhone back in 2007, but Vodafone was the only carrier to implement the service in Australia in May 2009.

The $5 per month Telstra service charge includes the delivery of voice messages to an iPhone within Australia, but normal charges apply for calls made using the call back function and for call diversion to MessageBank and retrieval from regular MessageBank. International data roaming charges apply for delivery of messages to an iPhone using the service overseas.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
