One of our big requests is that people want to use YouMail on their home phone.
We’re happy to report that we now support a collection of different home and VOIP services, including Time Warner Cable Digital Phone, Cox Digital Telephone, Vonage, Charter Digital Phone, Verizon Home Phone, AT&T UVerse Voice, and AT&T Residential.
The overall process is simple:
- Get YouMail Business Edition
- Decide whether you want your home voicemail delivered to a single cell phone or to multiple user cell phones (like a husband and wife), and decide whether you want the same greeting for your home and cell.
- If it’s a single user and you want the same greeting, just go to the existing YouMail account and add the new phone as an additional line.
- If it’s going to be shared voicemail box, or you want a different greeting, create a new account for the home number, setup auto-forwarding to deliver each incoming voicemail to your various cell phones, and setup your home-specific greeting
- Follow the call forwarding instructions below (the number to forward to will be here on the YouMail web site).
