Do you find it more convenient to read email/texts as opposed to talking on the phone? If so then a service you may be interested in is PhoneTag.

Here is how the process works:

  1. Someone calls and gets your voice mail.
  2. They hear your greeting followed by a voice which says something like “please speak clearly so your message can be converted to text”.
  3. A message is left.
  4. The message is converted to text and then emailed/texted to you.

This service works with just about any service provider and there is no software required. You can also give the service a try for free (for one week) to see if you like it.

While this might not be for everyone, I am sure some of you may find it useful.

Note: This is not a paid endorsement. A couple of people I work with use it and love it, so I though I would share.
