I love nifty voicemail services which make use of the Internet in some day. This one doesn’t really make use of the Internet so much other than for marketing purposes, but it’s still very cool. The name of the service is Slydial and it lets you get directly to someone’s mobile voicemail, skipping the call they might or might not pick up. In short: a direct way to leave a message while saving time and avoiding an awkward phone call.
Here’s how it works: you dial 267-SLYDIAL from any U.S. landline or cell phone, and enter the phone number of the person you want to leave the voicemail to. You’re directed to their voicemail within a second, and you can go ahead and leave the message, which they get to whenever they want to.
The service is undoubtedly a niche, situation-oriented service, but I see a lot of people having a use for it. We often need to save some time in our fast-paced lives, and thinking of the thousands of businessmen this is targeted for, it could serve as the perfect solution.
