Can I listen to my voicemail when I'm abroad?
Just call 901 like you do at home. This will work in all countries where you can use your mobile abroad.
Do you have enough credit to make the call back to UK?
Can you suggest anything else here?
The guide posted above was created (a few years ago) with both the community and O2.
As things obviously change over time, could you suggest what we can add to the guide to assist currently and if there are still differences for Contract and PAYG customers please?
This is what is currently offered from O2 help pages:
How do I use voicemail when I’m abroad?
Before you travel, you’ll need to make sure you know your PIN.
Calling 901 as usual works in most countries. If it doesn’t, call 1780 free from your mobile, or +44 7802 090 100, and we'll text you the right number to call.
Depending on which country you're in, you'll either go straight to your messages or to your voicemail greeting. If it's your greeting, press * and type in your PIN.
If you forget your PIN when you’re abroad, try texting RESET to 802901. If that doesn’t work, contact us and ask us to reset it. You'll then need to change it before you can listen to your messages.
That information is correct, however they need to be actioned before customer travels abroad.
This is because the short codes don't work overseas, this is the same for pay monthly and pay and go, customer wont be able to access voicemail until their return to the UK
