Saving Special Voicemail Messages: The Benefits of Voicemail to Email Service

Reports in the news are featuring the lamentations of individuals whose phone carrier deleted a special voicemail message after it had been left dormant for a number of days, or who accidentally deleted a message themselves, never to be seen again. Thankfully, with modern voicemail to email service, there is a way to save messages before they disappear forever.

An article on the technology site Geekwire reports that a number of telephone companies delete voicemail messages after approximately 30 days, even if the message was saved. Many people find out this information the hard way, especially after they search for an important voicemail only to find that it is gone. For some, the voicemail was a message from a loved one who passed away soon after the voicemail was received, or a message containing vital information regarding work-related matters. After they find that the message is gone, they hurriedly call their phone carrier to inquire about having the voicemail restored, only to find that doing so is impossible.

Businesses that use voicemail to email service have a better advantage than the average voicemail user, as all messages are sent to the recipient in the form of an mp3 file, which arrives at their designated email inbox. The file can then be saved to the individual’s desktop or other folder on their hard drive, which ensures that the voicemail will be stored indefinitely, even if the phone courier or voicemail service provider deletes older messages from their system.

Users can also forward the message to as many individuals as they would like, so that they can keep a copy as well. And, since the forward is in the form of an email, the voicemail can be accompanied by a written message.
