I'm not sure if I'm quilty of this or not...sometimes I'm sure I am. Though after reading this I really thought about phoning you and leaving a message until the machine cut me off. :)

Jay, you make me laugh. Calling and leaving an extremely long and senseless message - yes, I would not be shocked by that. MTS users are doubly cursed with our answering service because you can't delete a message in the middle of listening to it. I HATE this!

You can skip to the end with MTS voicemail during a message; I think it's 3 to skip to the end, 4 to repeat, and 7 to delete.

HA! I totally agreed with the article...but the snarky side of me wants to call and leave an incredible long winded nonsensical message on your machine! :) Then I read Jay's note and realized that I am not alone ;)

Mark said...

Wow, there's a lot of sick people out there (just kidding)! Jay, if hitting 3 works I will be giddy with joy, thanks for the tip. I know 7 to delete only works after the message has totally played through.

Jay Boaz said...

Yeah, skip to the end and then delete, should work just fine.

I can leave you a ridiculously long message for you to test it on if you like. :)
