People can get free voice mail service from websites such as YouMail and K7.net. YouMail is an enhanced voice mail service that uses a person's existing phone number. K7.net gives the user a new number for voice mail and faxes.
K7.net is a web-based messaging system that gives users a free phone number for receiving voice mail and faxes. This service sends any fax or voice mail directly to users' email accounts. Users also have the option of listening to voice mail or viewing faxes directly from the K7.net website. All voice mail and faxes that the system forwards to the users' emails appear as attachments.
YouMail markets itself as a personal assistant to replace people's current voice mail boxes. Instead of giving users a new number like K7.net, YouMail uses the users' current cellphone numbers. YouMail offers multiple plans, including a free one. The free plan comes with room to store 100 voice messages, the ability to check messages on a phone or PC, and email alerts when a new voice mail is received.
YouMail greets callers by name when they call to leave a voice mail and offers basic Caller ID. The service also allows users to block unwanted phone calls.
