 I do not get a notice from my phone, but typically someone's nice enough to warn me via text when my mailbox is full and that seriously can happen in one day, some of the days I have  😅

Did you call me Joan?  I actually don't receive notice because my voicemails convert to text and I can just read or play them, so don't actually know when it's full. I generally know how many I can have in it before it is full so I clear it out, but it also depends on length and size of vm's too. -Kasey

I suspect these are the same agents who do not communicate well. Some only have one agenda to double end deals by not processing your offer.  Some like office phone I can understand they do not go there often enough..... I ask the receptionist where the agents spend time the most.... eMail or tex. Sometimes I stop at the office finding agents are will not pick up their phone.

I have never received a Notice, and no one has ever gotten ahold of me and mentioned that my Mailbox was full, so I'm thinking that has not been the case for me, Joan Cox.  If it was, I would sure like to know!  I'm wondering if people do not listen to all of their messages, or do listen, and just don't delete them.  No way to leave a message, if they do not answer their phone though.

Be aware, when cell service capacity of the area is exceeded, the carriers start playing tricks. Conserving bandwidth by preventing the ability to leave a message is transparent to the subscriber and causes the user to believe the faults lies in the person called.

Other tricks are sending direct to voice mail when heavy load present.

And of course the ever popular dropped call. Usually immediately after answering.

And in all of these the consumers blame each other.

Now, there ARE those citizens who fail to undersand the purpose of voice mail. These citizen believe, "If it is important they will call again."
