    Hello - I've tried to forward a voice mail from my Cingular voice mail to a co-worker that has AT&T Wireless service but it will not go through. I assume it's because you can not forward a voice mail across different wireless carriers. Am I correct?

    Also, when the AT&T merger is completed, will the AT&T subscribers automatically be switched to Cingular?

    Thanks

    There have been conflicting reports that Cingular will have 6 months to
    complete the switchover after the acquisition is complete, and that they can
    still use the AT&T logo during that time. I doubt that it would be possible
    to switch everyone over all at once.

    Cingular has indicated that they will honor all ATTWS deals and bonuses.

    Forwarding a VM message can only be accomplished between VM systems of
    the same carrier. Some carrier VM systems package the outbound message
    into a .wav file and transport it across their internal IP network.
    Other carrier VM systems without this capability will simply use a land
    line to dial-up the other system's land line interface and play the
    outbound message while the receiving system records it. Again, in all
    cases, this is only possible between VM systems of the same carrier.

    Considering the above, it is technically possible to do cross-carrier
    message transfers. All that's needed is for each and every VM system to
    know how to contact all the other VM systems in the world, properly
    communicate their intentions, and agree to allow this event to occur.
    Simple, really. But can one imagine the chaos this would cause?
    Considering a carrier's capacity to screw things up, I don't even want
    to think about it.

    According to recent rumours, yes.

    I haven't tried it but I see no reason why this wouldn't work. If instead
    of forwarding voice mails that have already come in, you use simple call
    forwarding (you should be able to forward to any number land or cell) that
    way the message will be left on the second number in the first place. Of
    course you are aware there could be substantial charges for the call
    forwarding depending on how many calls are involved.

    I think the original poster wanted to receive a voice message at one
    number, and subsequently transfer that message to another voice message
    system. This is not the same thing as just forwarding inbound calls to
    a more preferrable VM system.

    All that is needed is an interchange standard, which isn't that big a deal --
    it's what drives the Internet after all. What would seem to be lacking is
    business justification.
