Go get Google Voice. It’s a free phone number and service from Google. Here’s the link. It’s free. Use it as your spam number. Give it out and let people leave voice mails. It’ll transcribe it for you and send you an e mail of the transcription. You need to do it. You can also connect it to all of you numbers you currently have without giving out those numbers. You can send text messages from it. You can connect it to skype – if you use it.
Just go get it. You’ll thank me for it.
