Playing the Voicemail Game?

Do you feel like a pawn in the voicemail chess game?  Check – Check Mate?  Call – Call Back?  Technology has come to our rescue!

SlyDial ( is a free service for your land or mobile phone that allows you to connect immediately to your recipient’s mobile voice mail without waiting for four to six rings, their outgoing message, the inevitable prompts, blah, blah, blah.  SlyDial just lets you go directly to voicemaget_smart2il. Sweet!

Talk about a time saver!  Use SlyDial when you need to respond or share a bit of information – but you really don’t have time for a conversation. It’s a tool for discretion and consideration.  Ever disturb or distract someone when all you wanted to do was leave a quick voicemail? I hate it when that happens.

So here’s how it works: to use Slydial from a land line or a cellular phone, dial 267-Sly-Dial (267-759-3425) and leave a message for your intended recipient. The service is free to users who don’t mind listening to a little advertising, or you can pay a very modest subscription fee to avoid ads (look for the words “MYslydial Premium”.)

You don’t have to join the premium service to use SlyDial – just enter the 267-759-3425 number on your phone and you’re in business. But if you want to use SlyDial apps for your iPhone (, BlackBerry ( and Windows Mobile Smartphones (, you need to be a MYslydial Premium subscriber.

Find more information on the website FAQs –  You’ll see the value of this very simple, very convenient communication solution. I’m always looking for ways to save a little time here or there to help me run my a little faster and this is one slick deal!
