Sometimes I just can’t pick up a phone call. There are countless scenarios where answering my phone is not an option, like when I’m in a meeting, at the movies, have my hands full of groceries or when my friend is in the middle of recounting a really important story that requires my full, undivided attention. Once you miss a call, you can’t always call into your voicemail mailbox right away to see what the person had to say, even if you’re extremely eager to find out.
Today Rogers launched Visual Voicemail Plus, included in new Rogers Value Packs. It’s another first from Rogers and it’s available for most phones. What’s great about Visual Voicemail Plus is that not only do you get the audio file pushed to your phone but the message is transcribed to text and sent with the audio file as an attachment in a single message. This means you no longer need to dial into your voicemail inbox, enter your password, and listen to all the prompts – your audio message and transcription is just a click away. One of the other key benefits is that you see the list of your voice messages and can directly access the one you want, rather than having to listen to each one in order they were left.
Visual Voicemail Plus is available for select BlackBerry and Android devices and is managed via an application, as well as available on other smartphones and mobile phones that support MMS (picture/video) messages with messages delivered via MMS.
How to get Visual Voicemail Plus
Contact Rogers to subscribe to the service. BlackBerry and Android users can download the Visual Voicemail Plus app from Rogers Mobile Internet Portal or the Android Market. For these apps, everything is synchronized between your device and traditional voicemail mailbox. This means that if you delete or view a message in the app, it will be deleted or marked as Saved in your voicemail mailbox. For mobile phones that support MMS, you just need to set up your voicemail to get started and messages will be saved on your traditional voicemail mailbox once they have been delivered to your phone via MMS.
Get your home phone voicemail sent to you your mobile
Visual Voicemail Plus also allows voicemail messages to be forwarded as MMS messages from your Rogers Home Phone. Just log into the voicemail online portal and click on the “message to MMS” tab.
Get your voicemail on your computer
If you’re already using the recently launched Rogers One Number service, you’ll be glad to hear that you can now integrate Visual Voicemail Plus via MMS on your computer too.
Do you have a memorable voice message that you continue to keep saved? Care to share?
