New iPhone Specific Features Coming From AT&T
AT&T and Apple are always trying to improve the iPhone and the network that powers it. A couple of new features coming our way from AT&T could make the iPhone’s cellular capabilities a little bit more robust.
According to Apple Insider, the new features could arrive by year’s end and are detailed below:
* Overage alerts would notify users via push notification badges, messages, or sounds when they approach their monthly anytime minutes limit.
* New voice mail options would let users disable the custom voice mail greeting (including AT&T’s standard voice mail introduction) and allow them to skip greetings (standard or otherwise) or other automated instructions when calling other AT&T customers.
The features are said to have been influenced by customer feedback such as the ability to disable the computerized voice instructions for leaving a wireless subscriber a voicemail. Recently, there have been community inspired efforts to get rid of said messages, luckily carriers have been listening which could explain AT&T’s continued commitment to improve iPhone usage on its network by further disabling that annoying pre-recorded intro.
