What Is The Capacity Limit On The Number Of Voicemails?
Fongo does not set a count limit for voicemail messages per account, instead, it's a storage limit. You can store approximately 10 MB of voicemail messages, which is approximately 21 minutes of messages. Upgrade to Fongo Plus and double your capacity 20 MB.
