Telstra's Messagebank services comes in four (4) flavours:
MessageBank provides a personal answering service if a phone line is busy or can't be answered. Callers are greeted with the customer's own personal greeting and are then asked to leave a message which can be retrieved from any phone when the customer is ready.
MessageBank Virtual has its own individual telephone number allowing customers to ring in directly to the mailbox to leave a message, or to forward their home or business number to the mailbox, i.e. with Call Forward Immediate, No Answer and Busy. Callers will be prompted to leave a message and these messages can be retrieved at any time, by the mailbox owner. This can be done from any tone phone.
MessageBank Away is a greeting only mailbox. This enables customers to connect a personalised message to a mailbox informing callers of changed circumstances eg. Change of number, temporary office closure for holidays, or a permanent closure of a business premises. Messagebank Away does not allow for message deposits.
MessageBank Combined allows customers to have one voice mailbox for both their GSM/CDMA mobile phone and one nominated fixed telephone service.
