Seeking a free service that will email me when someone leaves a voicemail at my existing phone number.

Asked by cirrina (187points) February 1st, 2009

I was using GotVoice, but they were bought by YouMail, which apparently isn’t free unless you have free Conditional Call Forwarding (which I don’t).

I don’t need any fancy features and I don’t need a new number—I just need email notification when I get a voicemail at my existing number (with at least one automatic check per day, i.e., with a 24-hour or shorter lag time between the person leaving the voicemail and me getting the email telling me that happened).

not exactly what you’re looking for, but grand central is really handy. I think google bought them up a while back, so they should really take off sometime soon.

Thanks, but I can’t use GC—need a service that works with an existing number. Does anyone know one?

This isn’t free so it isn’t what you want but I get my home phone service through my cable company and everytime someone leaves me a voice mail I get a TEXT MESSAGE to my cell phone telling me I have a voice mail.

Cool, that Verizon thing will help other people who see this thread! (I’m not a vz customer.)

@Sorceren, yeah, it’s not “free”. You need to have Verizon phone service plus a couple of pay features.

Is there no other service left that’s like GotVoice was? Free checks for voicemails left at an existing phone number?

@Mr_M and everyone — I’m so sorry! It was advertised to me as free, but that may be because I do online billing with Verizon.
