MTN Voicemail is only offered on MTN cell phones.

MTN Voicemail allows users to access their voicemail quickly and efficiently through their MTN cell phones. They can never miss important calls, especially if they constantly use their cell phones at home or in the office. Calls transfer over to voicemail whenever a phone is off, does not work or goes unanswered. The MTN Voicemail service then records the caller's message along with the time and date. The user then receives the message whenever he accesses the account. Users may set up a MTN Voicemail account once they receive or load the MTN pay as you go card.
