I thought of a new enhanced service this morning. I would like to be able to e-mail a WAV or MP3 file to a telephone number, SIP address, mobile phone e-mail address, etc and have the audio file become a voicemail message. I would want this functionality to be able to leave a message for someone on their phone without ringing it.
This is needed in a situation where you don’t want to wake someone up but you want them to get your message. In a hotel I often will ask to leave a message without ringing the phone and the service I described seems like the best way to get the same thing accomplished.
Now I could do this on a cell phone if I use the same provider as the person I am calling but I am not aware of a solution that gets this accomplished today. If you know of one, please feel free to post it in the comments section below. Thanks.
Vonage, CallVantage, Packet8??? Are you listening?
