Govt Voicemail Out Of Service For Ten Days

June 3, 2014

The Ministry of Public Works today [June 3] advised that the Government’s voicemail service — which was damaged during a lightning storm over a week ago — has not yet been restored.

A spokesperson said, “The necessary equipment parts are in the process of being ordered and replaced.

“However, due to the age and proprietary nature of some of the components and limited stocking by distributors, it will take at least ten working days to receive the parts and restore the voice mail system to full service.

“A temporary solution is currently being undertaken to return the voice mail service to the main phone line auto attendant and a number of selected phone lines within Government,” added the spokesperson.

“For the time being, with the exception of the Department of Maritime Administration, members of the public are encouraged to visit the blue pages of the Bermuda Yellow Pages Telephone Directory for a listing of Government departments to call directly or visit

The Ministry said they would like to apologize to the public in advance for any inconvenience.

    Wonder when the PLP will demand that Patricia Gordon-Pamplin resigns.

  2. Nah says:

    I thought it’s been out of service for the past decade

    Glad Government has it under control.

    The reality is, that Derek Burgess and Marc Bean are allowing their services to be used just in case concerned citizens need/and/or needed to get in contact with Government.

    You can count on us is their motto on their site; GanjaBayBe.Kool

    That’s no problem. You never get a warm body when you call government offices when it is in service. It is automated and totally frustrating.

  5. Bull in a hurry says:

    Can’t say I’ve noticed, nobody ever answers or calls you back anyway !!

  6. Truth is killin' me... says:

    I always get a warm, cordial “Good morning, how can I help you?” when I call a Government number……NOT!!!!!
