Dial to record...idea #56/100...

Following on from my last post about using push-to-talk to instantly update voicemail announcements, is there is an alternative whilst we wait for PTT to arrive on our terminals?

One possibility is to give users a dedicated number that is solely for updating voicemail announcements. Dial the number and record! That simple.

However, even were this available, don't underestimate the power of ultra-convenience when it comes to usability. It might not sound like much of a difference between dialling to record and pushing a button to record, but in terms of usage the difference is vast. Without doubt, the coming push-to-X mode of using mobile services is going to be important.
