I have a BT phone with full answerphone facility. I am with Talktalk and do not want to use the 1571 service after 1st August when it becomes chargeable. If I switch off this service, will I be able to accept voicemails on my home phone unit and listen to messages without the charge for 1571. In other words, are these 2 separate things?
Yes you have two separate answering services.
