Visual Voicemail 950/XL Windows 10 Mobile

Anonymous
Not applicable

Will VVM be supported on the Windows 10 Mobile OS aswell as the new 950/XL devices. I know it was only on O2 Software wiith 8.1 but as i understand the handling of the OS is solely done by Microsoft.

What i want to know is if i get an Unlocked 950 from Microsoft directly will i be able to get VVM?

Thanks

Hey guys,

We can confirm that VVM is working fine on the Lumia 950. Remember that for VVM to work, the handset needs to be an O2 variant and have come directly from O2 and be using an O2 Pay Monthly SIM – as has always been the case for VVM on Lumia.

We expect all previous Lumias (O2 variants) that will get the Windows 10 update will also work fine for VVM but we’ll keep you posted on this when we have more details to share.

As you have already said, it's only o2 firmware that gets VVM, so, with no o2 variant of that phone, no.

The only way VVM is gonna be available on the 950 is if it's available to anyone on any network, ie baked into the OS, but even then it would require the network to support it and if o2 ain't stocking the phone (wrong decision imho) they'd have no reason to.

As i meant in my original post, Microsoft will control the software updates, my guess is that we will not see any carrier branded software like in 8.1.

If that is the case it will be down to MS to bake it in to the firmware, but networks will still have to enable it.
It's back to @Chris_K to answer for o2 but my money is on a "no".

Yes it will as long as you have a pay monthly or business contract sim in the phone.

Actually it doesn't need to be in the phone but initially you will to receive the registration text.
