Personalised caller greetings...

Ken Brickley from Zeacom told me about his great new service for personalised greetings - I'd love to have this on my phone and I think the youth will love it too! (Which is me of course.)

Here's Ken's intro to the service:

"For the first time, you can have a professional greeting for your clients, a gooey message for your flame and a curt one for your X. In fact, you can record a unique greeting for virtually anyone who calls your cell phone. All other callers receive your regular greeting.

Early ‘GenY’ trial users of YouMail value the ability to express their individuality in creative voice greetings to close friends and family while presenting a more professional greeting to unknown missed calls that are increasingly work related.

An advanced feature of YouMail, coined “Ditchmail” by the female members of an early focus group, which allows users to record a custom greeting that actually hangs up on an unwanted caller immediately after the greeting is played. Available to US-based mobile subscribers on Cingular, Verizon and T-Mobile, YouMail boasts an online unified voice portal where users can access and save messages indefinitely and forward important voicemails via email."

Service is free during the beta. Check it out at www.youmail.com.
