    O2 Missed Call Alert - Free

    Not sure if people know about this but I didn't know till now.

    O2CallAlert is a simple easy to use alternative to Voicemail 901 giving you missed call information free of charge. If your phone is engaged or switched off , O2 will sent a free text message to you tell you who called you and the time.

    If you miss more than one call, Call Alert will send you details of up to four callers with the date and time of their last call to your mobile.

    You can switch on O2CallAlert at any time by calling 1710 free from your mobile.
    And if you want to switch if off, just call 1760 free.

    A very useful service for people that has to otherwise pay to retrieve their 901 voicemails.

    Vodafone do a similar one - it's really handy if you phone is switched off as it won't register the missed calls, so you don't know who's called, especially if no message has been left on voicemail.
    Really good thing, IMO

    I've turned it on Thanks

    Briliant, thanks a lot for this, repped

    i have set mine too, thanks!

    Setting it up now!! Thankyou!

    Just set it up spanks!!

    Set Mine too, Cheers mate

    Thanks for this - do you have a link or anything that shows it is definately free (and will remain so?)... Also is it for both PAYG and contract customers?

    Edit - found it here: o2.co.uk/ser…ted

    I'm on contract so I think I might stick with 901, although its nice to know an alternative exists, wish I had known back when I was on PAYG...

    1471 will do the same for the last number when its engaged or switched off but this good for up to 4 numbers i going to use it thanks.

    Thanks! Rep added!

    Yep you can, not sure if it's free though

    shame o2 don't do delivery reports for sms!

    yer i wish they would do a delivery report on the texts

    Start a new text message and before you begin type

    *0# followed by a space and begin your message, the other person does not see the code but you will get a message back saying when it has been delivered.

    Great tip rep on the way spriggan..

    any one know what the number is to check how many minutes left on your monthly allowance?

    this doesnt seem to work as well as voicemail...seems to be an either/or thing.
