Bypass Greeting?

Post by GideonNewell » Thu Aug 12, 2010 6:04 am

Hello- is there a number/key my callers can press to bypass my outgoing voicemail greeting to save on celluar minutes? For example, my outgoing voicemail greeting could instruct:

"Sorry I'm not able to take your call right now. Press 1 at any time to leave a voicemail immediately. Today is Thursday August 12, 2010 and I'll be in the office from 9am-5pm. Thank you so much for calling the offices of...."

Sorry, not at this time. It would be an enhancement request.

Yes, you can press the # key to bypass the greeting. It works the same way on most voicemail systems as I just used it this morning when leaving a message with a friend (on AT&T cell service). I tried it just now on my Ooma and it worked.

Also, pressing the * key will ask you for a PIN to log in to the voicemail system, so that you can listen to your voicemails while you're away from home.
