How to go straight to voice mail

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If you watched Seinfeld (and who didn’t), you might remember an episode where George was calling someone to leave them a message, and the person actually picked up the phone. George was flustered. “Oh…uh…I was going to just leave you a voice mail…uh…”. Have you ever had that happen? You need to get a message to someone, but you either don’t have time to actually have a conversation with that person (or you just don’t want to). You just want the voice mail.

Now there’s a service that will allow you to do that. It’s called Slydial. Here’s how easy it is:

1. Dial 267-SLYDIAL (267-759-3425) from any landline or mobile phone.

2. At the voice prompt, enter the U.S. mobile phone number of the person you want to slydial.

3. You will be directly connected to their voicemail. Leave them a voicemail, sit back and relax.

This service is completely free, if you don’t mind listening to a short ad. Or you can pay 15 cents per call, or $4.95 per month, or $29.95 per year and not have any ads.

Would you ever use a service like this?
