My Google Voice story

The power of connectivity:

  • Today, a partner at the firm I work at wanted to call me, not realizing I was on a plane
  • He leaves me a voice message on my phone which includes a cell phone number for me to reach him at
  • Thankfully, I’m on a flight with WiFi
  • Also, I have Google Voice which not only gives me an online control panel to access all my voicemail, but also transcribes the message, and forwards it to my email (technology #2)
  • Because I have Google Voice, I can also read and send text messages as long as I have an internet connection, so I shoot his cell number a text message telling him when I land
  • I added his cell phone number to my list of Google contacts
  • When I land, Google Sync adds the partner’s new contact information to my Blackberry contacts
  • I used the Google Voice app on my Blackberry to shoot my partner a call

So I get to help the partner out without breaking a sweat :-).
