Slowly but surely my friends have been using my Grand Central number to reach me. It is good for me because if I am at work I have the option to answer it on my work phone or mobile phone. I can even transfer the call without the caller even knowing I switched from mobile to work. And if I don’t answer, voicemails get sent to email or I get a text message telling me I have a voicemail. Also, my brother and I used PhoneSpell to try and find a word or two to make remembering my new number easier.
Another cool feature is the WebCall button. Put this button on your page, or where ever, and people can call you without giving out your number. Anyway below is my WebCall button. Try it out. It will ask for your number so that it can connect us. You can check where it says to keep your phone number private if you dont want me to have your number.
And now the WebCall button. Click on CALL.
A good guide to Grand Central is at Techcrunch. HERE.
I just set up an account with a # in the town where my kids live. Now they can call me without any long distance charge.
pretty cool. I didnt think about using it for that. I guess since most mobile phone have free long distance. But then again. I guess Hawaii is really LONG distance.
glad you using it!.
