Email and voicemail got replaced by text. Long docs via email are fine (I play online games via email), but most of my email nowdays are retailers who think they have a relationship with me but I never look at them unless I need to buy underwear and want a discount.
Voicemail? Fuck off. Yeah, I can have android do email to text with hilariously bad results. Fact is, you leave me a voice mail and I pretty much ignore you unless I recognize the sender.
Voice mail for me. Long, drawn out voice taking a good minute telling my phone tree options.. I enter my phone number. Long, drawn out voice. I enter my code. Long, drawn out message, I enter my code again. Long, drawn out message, I hit 1 for play. Long, drawn out rambling message from some dipshit asking a stupid question. I tell them they're a dipshit. Long drawn out message saying my mailbox has 2 more messages. Repeat 2 more times. Long drawn out message, my mailbox is mt.
Text version? Get a text. It's a stupid question. Might also say why in 142 characters.Delete, or answer, whatever. Problem solved in seconds instead of minutes.
Voicemail used to be great, now it's the refuge of people who can't condense their thought in less than 30 seconds.
