    I noticed that several of the messages I had listened to on
    my voice-mail had disappeared, and learned from Cingular that
    the messages lapse after 7 days.

    Seems unusually short a time for messages to lapse. 14 days I could
    live with, but 7 days seems unfair.

    Anyone know if other companies give more time?

    Verizon gives 40 days on saved messages. DOn't know why Cingular is
    cheaping out on this. They recently got rid of Enhanced voice mail,
    which gave more retention time...

    Really?? I bought the plan with "Enhanced voice mail".
    So this was removed from the plan without notifying me?
    If that's the case, then I guess that's why, unconsciously,
    I noticed this seems to be a shorter expiry time than before!

    If you're paying for Enhanced voice mail but no longer getting it call
    and scream. EVM has several nice features besides longer retention such
    as longer greetings and pager notification. I could understand them
    dropping it if it was included in the plans but they were charging for
    it seperately -- easy profit. If enough people would call and ask for it
    they might reconsider.

    My voice mail says the message is saved or thirty days. But that's in the
    Indianapolis market which seems to be different from others.

    VM is out sourced by a independent company.
    Standard has a 7 day hold while enhanced give 14 days.
    Been this way for last 5 years.
