    -if you leave a text message there is a accurate record of what you said.

    real panic to remember how to answer a voice phone call or retrieve a voice message

    My voice message says "Hey it's Paul, please leave a text because I don't check voicemail very often."

    hate getting voicemails, never even check them it's just aint necessary. like i see that u called, I'll call u back, or just text me no need to leave this 30 second message asking to call u back, i get it.

    What if they're calling from a landline and don't have a cell phone? icon_neutral.gif
