    Another uninformed customer service rep trying to sell another package --
    you can use the pay as you go messaging @ $0.02/received message (that's
    what I do...). The packages are only a benefit to the consumer if you SEND
    a significant percentage of your text messages ($0.10/sent message).

    When I requestd OMA, Verizon CS said something like a 5 line business
    account was required...

    Likely Verizon doesn't want to pick up 800# fees.

    They did add OMA to my account(have enhanced VM). But notifications do
    not work. Will need trouble shooting.

    Some of those old, local roamer access numbers still work for leaving
    VM, without causing the phone to ring first. The greeting is now,
    "welcome to the Message Management System".

    They didn't tell *me* that, and they added OMA to my two lines a couple
    days ago. I do have enhanced voicemail...

    I have two personal lines - the CSR did ask whether they were personal or
    business lines, FWIW.

    Of course, this CSR was not aware OMA even existed... he actually thanked
    me for letting him know about it and expressed a little disappointment that
    he hadn't heard anything from the company...

    Thanks a load it works! Just not used to entering 20 digits with no #
    to designate end of entry.
    Text messages read "office message alert".
