I would like to have a greeting . message that people hear when they call and I don't answer, but do not want them to have the option of leaving a voicemail message. Is this possible?
I use my phone for business, and want clients to hear instructions on how to contact me (by other methods)if they phone and I don't answer, but I don't want them to have the option of leaving a voicemail because I don't want to have to return client calls / inquiries in that manner. leaving my voicemail box full doesn't look professional, and simply instructing them not to leave a voicemail doesn't mean they wont. It seems weird to me that there is no option for this.
You could always record an Extended Absence Greeting. I completely forget what number you have to press, but it's in the menu. Basically after you record that greeting, it gives you the option to not allow messages to be deposited. I have mine on all the time simply because I hate having to check my voicemail. ;)
