Home messages 101 had a standard message and could only be retrieved from the same connection.

MessageBank was $6 per month extra (typically this was waived if you had a bundle as a ‘bonus’), and it allows you to record your own message, you can also check your messages from another line, you can have a pin to protect the messages and it can hold more messages.

Re: Messages 101

I believe that 101 was poor relative to Message  Bank proper. First, 101 used to be free, while Message Bank was not... TBH, I am not too familiar with the two products, so perhaps someone else can chime in to clarify the differences completely...

Good evening!
To the best of my ancient memory.....
Message Bank was originally a chargeable service.
Then it became free for non-business.
Then Business message bank appeared, with possibly some extras? ..... which was chargeable.
Kind regards
