Finally Consumers Can Manage Voicemail Just Like Email – For Free!

Got voice mail? Got Email? GotVoice has just made it possible to access your voice messages anywhere you have access to the Internet, and that goes for voice mail from nearly all major mobile and home phone carriers.

Founded in 2003 by industry veterans from RealNetworks, Microsoft, Starwave, AT&T, and Corbis, GotVoice has grown up as a Northwest pioneer in voice messaging services. With the launch of its free voice messaging service consumers can manage their mobile, home and work voice messages from a single location online. The GotVoice system allows you to see who has left a voicemail and listen to those messages in any order. The crowning achievement makes GotVoice the only voice messaging service that allows consumers to visually take control of their voicemail without requiring a new number, a forwarded call, or text messaging services.

In fact, the service doesn’t require users to make any changes whatsoever to their normal phone use. For the highest level of flexibility, GotVoice also leaves messages on the original voicemail system, so consumers can check their voicemail as they always have, if they choose.

GotVoice works effortlessly with all major cell phone carriers, residential lines including those offered by cable and VoIP providers, and corporate voicemail systems – with no carrier or work-place involvement. Whether users opt to receive voicemail via email or at their personal GotVoice Web page, GotVoice enables them to easily send, receive, create and store all of their voice messages—in the same way they use email. There is no software to install and consumers don’t even need a phone to access messages.

“Voicemail should be as simple to use as email, extending beyond the restrictive options currently available in today’s market,” said GotVoice CEO, Curt Blake. “Consumers can now interact with voicemail in any manner they choose; sending, receiving, creating and storing messages on their terms. We believe our service sets the standard for voice messaging offerings, and clearly moves the industry in a direction where voice will be free from the historic restraints that have kept it locked between a pound and star key.”

Over the past 30 years email has gone from a tool used solely by academics and businesses, to the de facto means of communication worldwide. While email has enjoyed several fun enhancements that personalize messages, voicemail has not seen such options – until now. GotVoice allows consumers to create personalized greetings and outgoing messages, combining voice with music. It’s not all fun and games though: using GotVoice, business travelers and globetrotters can save thousands of dollars each year on international roaming charges by sending and receiving voicemail via email or online at GotVoice.com.

GotVoice makes voice messaging effortless through a combination of options ranging from silent deliveries and unlimited archiving to access from anywhere in the world. With GotVoice, users can send a voice message to any phone on all major phone networks without the recipient’s phone ringing. Consumers can easily forward or broadcast messages to multiple people all at once, just as they do with email. [24×7]
