You know – when you call someone’s cell phone and spend a full minute waiting for the robot lady to finish telling you to ‘leave a message after the tone, or press 1 for more options. . .’
This is seriously a pain in the rear. Think of this, if they let you disable this, you wouldn’t be using minutes. Get it! It’s all about using your minutes.
Something to try would be Pinger. There are no prompts, no voicemail introduction. Just a message being left for you to pick up. Personally, I don’t leave voicemail anymore. I leave Pingers.
