Yes Andrew, I think I see what you mean, 1571 being free.  All the same, I 
would have thought it could be an option with 1471.

I guess from what you are saying that this sort of broadcast voice mail is only 
going to be an option for voice over IP users.  Just think its a shame that 
something along the lines of voice message broadcasting never evolved for 
ordinary phone lines.  It would have been such a convenient and instant way of 
informing people, especially VI people, who either by inclination or lack of 
resources cannnot get on the internet options.

Such a voice broadcasting service is not going to be done by BT because
at the current time the charge for the 1571 service is free, and so this
would initiate message transfer to people freely.  Also people who
received the messages would need to use the compatible 1571 service - I
don't use this, so it wouldn't work.

However, on my work answerphone which uses a Cisco Unity voicemail box,
we have this feature, and I also have this feature on my Vonage IP
telephone line.
