With your busy schedule, you need to receive and respond to calls quickly and efficiently. Voicemail notifies you immediately when a caller leaves you a detailed voicemail message. You can check the message and return the call prepared, saving time and money for you and your caller.

Voice Mail is a service that functions similar to voice mail on your phone or an answering machine. Callers can dial your pager or device number and hear a short recorded greeting from you; they can then leave a voice message which you will be able to listen to by dialing your pager or device number and accessing your voice mail.

Maintenance Policy
USA Mobility offers a Maintenance Policy to any USA Mobility unit that is owned and maintained by the customer (COAM). COAM maintenance entitles you to a "like" for "like" exchange if the device becomes nonfunctional under normal operating conditions. Maintenance can be purchased for a nominal monthly fee and protects against the malfunction of internal electrical and mechanical functioning of the unit due to normal wear and tear and under typical operating conditions. Under the Maintenance policy a customer is entitled to exchange their unit for the same or like unit.

The following are included under the maintenance plan:
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Dead: not responding when turned on
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Falsing (receiving false pages)
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Intermittence
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Loose battery connection
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Weak vibe motor or speaker volume
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Weak or no light
USA Mobility Gray Bullet New battery in exchanged pager
USA Mobility Gray Bullet LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

What is Not Included with Maintenance?
Maintenance does not include replacement or repair for pager loss, theft, destruction or damage caused by abuse, neglect or operation in an adverse environment; e.g., wet, paint, plaster, concrete, extreme heat or cold.
The following items are NOT considered normal wear and tear and are NOT included under the maintenance program.
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Lost or broken battery covers
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Missing parts
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Case damage: cracked, dented, melted
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Case abuse: stickers, permanent-marker, holes, painted or plastered
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Broken/Cracked/Bent belt clips or holsters
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Animal teeth marks
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Excessive battery consumption or short battery life
USA Mobility Gray Bullet Not decoding/not receiving (typically network related)
Maintenance may be purchased on any COAM at anytime, however, if maintenance is not purchased at the same time as the pager, an Administration Fee will apply.
Any pager that is destroyed, crushed, minced or mashed, water damaged will be considered damaged beyond repair.
The company reserves the right to determine that a repair is outside of normal wear and tear damage as covered by the Maintenance Policy.
Maintenance Pricing is based upon the unit in service.
A maintenance device will generally be exchanged with a "like new" device of like vintage and model based on the availability of the equipment by the company at the time.  Custom case colors may not be available, therefore, black will probably be the replacement color issued most frequently.
