A Google Voice Tip

by Oct 9, 2009Personal, Tech1 comment

If you have Google Voice like I do, you probably—like I did—took a look at its features and then quailed at the thought of alerting everyone to a new cellphone number. That’s quite a commitment, and, frankly, I don’t think I’m ready for that emotionally.

But I discovered a way to use some of GV’s neatest features without commitment! You can forward voicemail calls to GV, and it will send you an e-mail and or SMS with a transcription of the message. No more listening to the fifteen-minute voicemail intro!

If you have a Verizon phone, you can just dial *71 then your Google Voice number. Hit send, and you’re done. You can adjust settings in GV for how you want to be alerted when you get a call. Worked for me!
