Hi guys, Today in this post I am going to share some points on Giffgaff Voicemail Number. Many of the users have various questions related to the voicemail like how they can operate, check their messages etc.
Before getting into the post I want to tell you what is Giffgaff and how it is started? There is various humour on the internet that express giffgaff in their own way.
According to me, The Giffgaff is a company that provides a mobile network for you across the United Kingdom. The company is launched in November 2009 & operates using the virtual network of O2.
What is Giffgaff Voicemail
A type of Voice message a sender leaves when the receiver is not present or not available at the moment.
It works similar to that of an old answering machine, the only difference that the voice message is stored on the service provider server instead of being stored on your machine.
The spacious space provided by service provider is known as a mailbox. The mailbox that is reserved by the user is termed as a normal mail, that saves the message in the voice form instead of text.

Firstly you have to figure out whether your Pin protection is enable or disable. If it is enable then this method won’t work for you. Still you can give a try Type RESET and send Text message to 802443.
It depends on the plan you have. as a result, it charge differently for the voice mail that uses airtime credit or goodybag. It you don’t have goodybag then it will cost you around 8p per call. Likewise if you have a goodybag then, it will deduct 1 minute per call.
You can set the divert to another number using the *004*443# code. It is recommended to first divert to your registered number and then Re-enable the service using the same code.
