I hate voice mail. I have hated voice mail for a while. When I am at work, I attempt to avoid leaving people voice mail messages. If I call someone and get their voice mail then I will hang-up and I will send them an email. If I call an office and ask for someone and they say they are out, would I like their voice mail, I say no thanks, I will send an email.
My cell phone has voice mail on it. It will record a maximum of 3 messages and will save them for 3 days. You get that for free. You can pay to upgrade if you want to be able to take more messages and save them for longer.
I called Telus yesterday and cancelled my voice mail. The rep on the line told me that my voice mail is included in my package, it’s free. I told him that I hate it – please remove it.
So, now, if someone calls me, my phone will ring for a LONG time, 10 rings I think it is, perhaps more and then it simply disconnects. Sounds good to me.
If I recognize the caller ID, I will call you back. If I don’t recognize the caller ID, chances are that I did not really want to talk to you anyway.
I have voice mail at work, of course. I try to get my calls at work anyway – they shouldn’t normally go to voice mail anyway. If I do get a message, I will listen to it and then I will get back to you.
So, now you are all aware of my love of voice mail. Call me, leave me a message. 🙂
