      New 1571 feature

      I just picked up a message using 1571 & there was an extra notification there regarding a missed call from yesterday.

      I've never had that before so assume it's a new thing?
      Could be handy for those with basic phones which don't log missed calls.

      I've let a few missed calls happen since & none are recognised by 1571.

      Whatever happened before is definitely something different to the 1471 service, which merely notes the last number that called me.

      Is there something i'm missing here?

      Whether the call goes to 1571 depends on whether the caller left a message. I have mine disabled. With a digital answer machine there is no real need for it and my phone stores all calls whether they are answered or not. 1471 only records the last call made, so you don't really know if you have missed any calls which are not on the answer machine.

      Re: New 1571 feature

      What happened was i missed a call on the 25th & no message was left.
      I then missed another call on the 26th & they did leave a message, indicated by the dual dial tone.

      So i ring 1571 to listen to the message just left, but have this extra notification.
      It went something like: "You have one recorded message & one missed call".

      I listened to the message, deleted it using the 3 button & then pressed 1 to hear all the details of the missed call from the day before, such as number & time, with options to call back, store etc.

      This has never happened before or since.

      I just figured out that this happens when a caller leaves it ringing long enough for voicemail to kick in, but hangs up before the tone to leave a message is heard.

      No dual dial tone is produced when this occurs.

      The notification is:
      "A person has tried to reach you. Call received today at... From..." etc.

      Is this new?

      I am amazed that anyone uses a local answerphone when the facility is available at the exchange. But then I am old enough to remember dial-up internet access - it was a great step forward for mankind when exchange based voicemail was introduced by BT and a caller could leave a message while you were on the internet for hours.

      Because a home answerphone offers better notification such as flashing light, audible alert or text display of messages waiting? Plus better customisation of messages, time dependant etc?

      Personally, I use a landline so infrequently that I'd have to keep remembering to pick up a handset to check for a dial tone notification. Which would be a right pain.

      I'm not stuck that far back in the dark ages.

      My phone does have caller display, so if i miss one that's what's displayed on screen.
      Which in turn prompts me to press the green button & see if there's a dual dial tone.

      This logging of missed calls must be a new thing though surely?
      I've had sky talk since late 2011 & the scenario where it occurs must have happened 100's of times before now.

      1. Doesn't this confirm it
      I just figured out that this happens when a caller leaves it ringing long enough for voicemail to kick in, but hangs up before the tone to leave a message is heard.
      2. That's what I meant. My point is that it only records the last call, you could miss 10 calls but only get notified about the last one.

      My first answer machine was a Panasonic. It was about the size of a small suitcase and cost about 200, with one handset if I remember correctly, which was a lot of money in the early 70s. It served me well until I gave up my business in the late 90s
