VOICEMAIL SERVICE NOW AVAILABLE
Simple. Convenient. Reliable. These words describe F&B Communications’
new VoiceMail system.
A replacement to the answering machine, VoiceMail takes calls when
subscribers are on the phone, on the Internet or away from the phone.
“We are pleased to bring this state-of-the-art technology
to our customers right here in Eastern Iowa,” Ken Laursen,
general manager, said.
Subscribers will hear a stutter dial tone when they have new messages
and a message waiting light will flash on specially-equipped phones.
The new system also allows customers to have multiple mailboxes,
remote access to messages and password security.
“Since the VoiceMail system is installed at our office in
Wheatland, it is reliable,” Laursen said. “You never
have to reset the date and time after a power failure.”
Standard with every package is a featured called eForward. When
activated, an audio clip of any message recorded in a user’s
mailbox is sent via e-mail to the user. This makes it possible to
be alerted that there are new messages while a subscriber’s
line is busy because he/she is on the Internet.
is an excellent alternative for Internet users who subscribe to
Call Wave,” Aaron Horman, marketing manager, said. “In
fact, for some customers VoiceMail is less expensive and serves
the same purpose, plus you no longer need an answering machine.”
Voice prompts assist subscribers in accessing messages and setting
up their accounts. A web-based interface is also available to give
users the ability to customize their mailbox settings and manage
messages from an Internet Web browser.
The basic VoiceMail package is $3.95 per month and includes eForward.
Enhanced packages are available for business and residential customers
with advanced needs.
