Can anyone tell me how I can disable this feature. I'm fine with 1571 messaging service but I don't want my phone ringing every time I have a message when I hang up.
Iv'e logged on to my BT and tried to manage landline options but it seems to think you want to upgrade your package.
Sorry for the delayed response. No not a text message, its when you are on the phone and someone else phones you and leaves a message. When you hang up, either right away or later on your phone rings (your own number comes up on on caller display). It quite annoying. It is only recently been introduced in the last few months I think?
It is annoying. I phoned home this morning to say I would be home in 10 minutes but it went to voice mail. When I arrived home 10 minutes later, it was 5 minutes before 1571 rang to tell me I had a message - from me. As no one in the house had been on the phone, I have no idea why voicemail picked it up.
Thanks for the reply, I don't want to cancel 1571 I just want to turn off the phone ringing to alert me to messages as the other poster has mentioned. As the other poster mentioned you can get a call several mins later after the message has been left which is odd.
