Text Messaging Idea

Here is an email I sent to David Pogue - the Tech Columnist at The New York Times:
Check it out on his blog here.

While we're on the topic of cell phones, how about a way to send a voicemail to another person without having to call them? How often do you want to tell them something that is too long for a text (or your fingers are tired) and don't care to hear that "nothing" is up and that they are "good." - ?

Also, are there still people who don't know how to leave a voicemail that we need that lady to be giving instructions? Has anyone ever even "paged" the person they were calling? What does that even do - send out a message over the PA system where you are and tell you to call your mother?!

Uch, I miss beepers. They were so much simpler...and pointless...and acceptable to wear on your belt.


  1. At least with verizon, there is a way to just send a voicemail. when u call up ur own voicemail, you can check your messages, but also one of the other options is to send a voicemail. you just type in the number and it gois straight to their voicemail...
