Message Bank Plus services down?

Three weeks ago signed up on a Telstra No Lock-In Plan $80 including Message Bank Plus. Despite numerous calls and visits to Telstra Shops since commencing the plan I have been unable to receive or retrieve voicemails. I transferred the service away from the company I was working for - previously the account was under a Telstra Business Plan and use the Mobile Memo service.

Ideally I would like the service Message Bank Plus (iPhone Visual Voicemail) enabled as promised when I signed up.

If not I would like an alternative voicemail system provided as it currently says Telstra 101 is not available on the service.

If neither of these are possible I would like a refund and I will take the phone to another carrier.

Thus far I have tried the following on advice of Telstra's Technical support but neither have had any effect:
• Reset Network Settings
• SIM swap (SIM burn)

Thanks in adavance,
