Cool New Tech: VoiceCloud

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with San Diego Previews Real Estate CA BRE# 01101958

I called Pat Kitano a couple of weeks ago and left a message on his cell phone.  Moments later, I received an email back stating he was in a meeting, but that I should go and check out Voice Cloud asap.

I went, I saw --and was conquered. (Can someone translate that to Latin?)

In fact, it has become my favorite new cell phone technology. Now when a voicemail come in, it is automatically converted to text and sent to my email.

From my Blackberry, I can respond via text or simply return the call.

Setup is easy.  Just go to VoiceCloud and follow the simple instructions. I never bother to check voicemail again--and can see what's coming in when I'm with clients or in a meeting.

Oh yes: You will need to re-record your greeting via VoiceCloud.

 

The cost? FREE! 

NOTE: Try "Cloud Today" as password and see if that will work

In Latin the saying is  "Veni, Vidi, Vici".
Impressive service btw.

believer: Veni, Vidi, Vici = I came, I saw, I conquered.

Translate I went, I saw, I was conquered.

High school Latin escapes me.

Roberta - I have been using it since I saw your post (and Pat K's)  and it's great. My only complaint is multiple emails.

Jeff:  For some reason, I also get two messages--but I think that has something to do woth how Blackberry processes two email accounts. Beats me--but I love the service!

Roberta,

Can't wait to try this. I have 4 kids, and this alone will help while I'm with clients and they want to know what's for dinner!

I'll be reading you!

This sounds like a great tool. Time to log on to Voice Cloud and get set up using password: Cloud

Some great ideas for it's use in the comments too. Even receiving two emails is faster than calling my voice mailbox, punching in my password, pushing the number to hear my voicemails, then having to save it or listen to it time and time again to get the information, on occasion. Argh! Voicemail as email - sounds like just the fix!

Tried to sign up. Says I can only get a 7 day free trial and the promo codes did not work:tried cloud, Cloud, cloud today, and Cloud Today.

Any other ideas?

back again - okay, gotta read "use 7days as code" - duh! Now I'm in for 7 days. What is the cost after that?

We've had so many sign ups thanks to this blog that we signed up and are now activerain sponsors, thank you.

 

To answer your questions:

- You can disable the option of receiving two emails form the settings page, just check the box "receive my audio attachment with the text". The reason for this feature is we have some customers that wish to receive the audio file attachment (wav or mp3) immediately after a voicemail is received, while others wait until the messages has been transcribed to text and receive the attachment with that email. If you select to receive the audio attachment first, then you will receive a second email shortly after containing the text of your voicemail.

- After the 7 day free trial, we have two plans. $9.95 a month for 50 voicemail conversions or $19.95 a month for unlimited.

 

Thank you,

VoiceCloud.com

This a great system but they have recently been raising prices, unlimited no longer means unlimited.
