    Default Is anyone guilty of letting their voicemails build up before they check it?

    I know this is bad, but I just looked at my phone and realized I have 23 voice mails....how do they build up so quickly???I just went through them the other day! Is anyone guilty of letting their voicemails build up before they check it?

    I think its because before the Storm I had a Virgin Mobile phone, and the problem with it was that the voicemail process just to check was SO long.

    The robot operator would speak so slow and explain every detail of leaving a voicemail and deleting them took for ever. It would also read out the phone number of the caller. I think they did this to make more money to make you stay on phone longer...

    So now I just let my VMs build up!

    I just check the call log first to see who the missed calls are from. I won't bother checking the voicemails depending on who it was that left them.

    I'll just delete them when I check the voicemail once somebody important calls me.

    I am guilty. A missed call is like a message. I simply return the call. Once i get around to checking the VM's, Ive already talked with the person.

    I might never return the call, depending on who it is. Or I'll text the person instead. I really hate talking on the phone.

    Yep, it's part of my Rogers phone plan. Someone calls and leaves a message and they convert it to text and shoot me a text message with the transcript. Works really well and happens almost instantly.

    nobody i know leaves voicemails...so i usually listen to them right away, considering that they're usually something important if they leave a message...but most friends send sms instead of VM anyway...

    I probably receive 1-2 voicemail every few weeks. Most people text me instead.

    I am not familiar with that one but from what I have read I think it is completely different. Visual voicemail is a list of callers I think, not the actual voicemail written out as text.

    I could be wrong though. Mine is just a transcript of the message delivered via SMS.

    VVM doesn't do transcripts...it basically only does what the name says...it's a visual inbox of your voicemail...so you can select and listen to each one individually, in any order, fast forward, save to your device as a voicenote, whatever...

    Card Storm -- Google Voice will transcribe the voicemails for you... the only downside is, the person has to call you Google Voice number. It does its magic voodoo and then emails it to you.

    My Voicemail box is really small, so I tend to check immediately.
    RED Torch Virgin Mobile, Storm (LyrHybrid.669v2) Rogers, unlocked HTC Desire, Macbook 10.6.5, Hackintosh desktop 10.5.6, JailBroken 16GB iPodTouch 1G, 16GB iPod Nano 4G , 8GB Jailbroken/unlocked iPhone 3G, Palm TX...... gadget queen!

    I always check it. I hate talking on the phone, so I'll listen to the message and send a text back..
