Send to Voicemail at certain times of the day

Post by burnside » Mon May 10, 2010 9:03 am

My baby is a light sleeper. When the phone rings, she's up! I'd like to see a way for call received during certain time blocks to go straight to voicemail so the phones don't ring. This is also good for those who don't want to hear the phone go off at night.

Let me know what you think!

Not sure if you were aware of it or not but you can turn on the do not disturb feature by holding the envelope for 3 sec. It is a manual process however, no automated feature available that I'm aware of.

Actually my cat taught me this feature! He slept on the Telo and lit that enevelope icon up. Had 5 voicemails by the time he woke up!

I'm just thinking it would be nice to not have to worry about setting this manually all the time, but yeah, good to know it's there!

Same here! Can't tell you how many times I couldn't find my wallet because a cat was sleeping on it!

The only carrier that I'm aware of that had programmable "Do Not Disturb" was my first Voip carrier, the now defunct Verizon Voicewing. Not only could you program DND times, they also had an exception list. You could add numbers to this list that would ring through even if DND was activated.

Of course, if you don't mind changing to a new phone number, Google Voice can do this for free. You have complete control of how calls are treated and at what time and for whom the treatment applies. You can set up special groups (family, spouse, work, in-laws) and have each group with different rules applied. If you are not tied to your existing number, give it a try. You DO NOT NEED Google Voice Extensions or Premier to make this work - and best of all, it doesn't cost anything!

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
