I just received an email from Cingular (or is it the New AT&T?) informing me that I could sign up for the enhanced voicemail feature for $1.99 per month. LOL! Here is the description of this exciting feature from Cingular:
---Whether you're in a meeting or on the other line, you can't always answer your calls. Let voicemail take a message. Get the most from your voicemail by knowing its features and benefits, and how it works. Never miss a call, Receive fast voicemail alerts, Personalize your greeting. Enhanced Voicemail ($1.99/month and $2.99/month in New York State) doubles your message capacity from 20 to 40 messages, increases your message length by 1 minute and adds 7 more days of storage time. You can also send messages to groups and use member lists for added convenience.---
This absolutely could not be worse!!! Just what I need, 40 messages instead of 20! Don't forget to use that extra minute they are tacking on for my convenience. Needless to say, this is one feature I will not be taking advantage of........AGHH!
Repeat After Me: "You have reached the voicemail of Kim Thomas, Please do NOT leave a message"
