Voicemail System Management???

So I've seen the happy little box on the chat window that lets you play back the voicemail from the user... Is this the only voicemail system management except the record custom recording in the Settings Dialog? Do I need to delete these voicemails from the chat dialog or delete the chat dialog itself? Should I be concerned that my voicemail may become full if I don't?? I had someone yesterday swear that they left me a voicemail and I didn't get a chat dialog with a voicemail link? But today they called and I have a voicemail in the chat dialog... Is there a number to call to check them directly? Maybe that missing message is there? I'm so confused! LOL...

Hi, Raymond:

Thanks for your post!

Unlike traditional cell phone providers, there's no number to call to get your voicemail messages; rather, you access them like any other message or call log, right from your app or online at www.textnow.com.

The voicemail files themselves are very small, so you would have to have literally thousands of undeleted voicemails before you started running out of space.

You delete them like any conversation - swipe on it on the conversation page and tap on the garbage-pail icon.

Hope that helps!

I really do like the idea.... And they work really well... It takes a second for the app to download them when you go to play them but overall they sound good... I have Asterisk PBX Connected to my VoIP Service here at my house... That system records the voicemail as GSM Files and yeah, they are SMALL.... Okay, I just wanted to make sure what I was seeing was how it really all worked. Do they expire? Can I download them off the app onto my phone as an audio file?

The voicemail is saved as a file on your local device, and generally speaking they're in a folder called "TextNow VM". You can transfer these files to your computer or SD card for storage.

They will expire eventualy, like any other message or call log.
