Verizon sends home voicemail notification to mobiles

October 17, 2005

Verizon said Monday it is expanding its service to allow voice-message notices left at fixed lines to appear on cell phones.

The feature sends a text message to subscribers indicating that a new voice message has been left at the customer's landline voice mailbox. The service was first introduced in June in New York and New England, and it will now be expanded to other regions.

"This new feature recognizes the popularity of wireless phones and our need to have instant access to our messages" Rich McCusker, director of product development for Verizon, said in a news release. "Now messages shout out, 'I'm here, whenever you're ready for me,'" he added.
