This is my first post on SFN. We have recently taken out a contract for a fixed telephone line and internet with orange. All is going smoothly so far, but we have an issue getting our voicemails. We know the number is 3103 to pick up, but when we do this there is a message , I think, asking us to register, or do something, before we can pick the voicemails up. Does anyone know the process or are we doing something wrong! thank you
Shirley, if they changed Orange to 'Headscratchers International' it would be fine by me. It is not just we dumbo foreigners but it amazes most of our French friends just how incompetent Orange are and that anything works at all!
Shirley about said it. It depends entirely on your phone. Incidentally, we got rid of our landline to have the internet phone only with the existing number from the landline. We saw no pint in having two lines as one does when they have internet, we have 'free' calls to a number of countries so bingo. The voicemails work well enough BUT when we changed to the internet phone only it was at least two months before it was functional, even with the right phone.
@John_Robert_forsyth, I had exacty the same. Fearing it was something to do with setting a greeting message I kept just hanging up I did not want it to record my profanities as the welcom message…
I am trying to remember exacty what I did, but I did it all online. Orange do have English language version for most of the web site. Log on to your client space (you may need to create that) to manage it.
Sorry I cannot be more specific at the moment. If I wake in the middle of night, rememebering what I did, I will post it here. As I will if I remember any other time, too. You can also listen to your messages online, which I find rather neat.
