I read a comment somewhere in the Forum, that Irad is considering shortening the amount of text to be entered in a VMAIL.
While I can understand the need to do so on the calling QRG, I wonder if there might be a different way to reduce the load on the QRG.
How about compressing the message, and sending it that way (just like when a picture or file is sent)?
How about limiting VMAIL size JUST on the calling QRG, but allowing the current 500 character messages on other frequencies?
A non-consistent experiance will be hard for people to understand... Next version will take the VMail size to 300 characters. I do this partially to reduce stress on the CF until I implement a new balancing mechanism (currently in design) but also because I want VMails to be a natural extension of the chatting experiance (more like an async type of chatting)... So I am after the "twitter-like" experiance where you use less words that are more meanigdul. forcing you into a box makes you more effecient in your emmission :)
