Some of you call me on my cell. As you know, I am frequently unavailable (meetings, work, etc.), and I feel bad that I can't talk more often. However, thanks to a free service, YouMail, you can all now have a personal greeting from me on my voicemail. Yes, a greeting for each of you.
It's actually pretty easy to set up, and cool. It involves changing your voicemail from the one your cell provider gives you (which everyone just loves the flexibility of) to YouMail's service. Why? Here's some of what you get:
- Listen to your messages on the phone or on the web
- Get a text message whenever someone leaves you a voicemail, with who the voicemail is from
- Ability to record personal greetings for any specific person who calls you. No limit on how many! Record from your phone or through your computer.
- My favorite: ability to play a specific message to certain callers...and not let them leave a voicemail. Because as much as I love telemarketers and recruiters, I'm even happier to wade through voicemails they leave me. ;-)
Like I said, it's free, works with Verizon, Cingular, or T-Mobile phones, and makes voicemail almost useful! If you have not yet heard your personal message from me, you might, on your next call!
