I have read many posts about different toll free companies. My question is this, do any offer "call notification". For example ureach when a call is forwarded your phone it rings and then goes "You are receiving a ureach.com call press 1 to accept press 2 to send to voicemail". (It goes something like that.)
Tried to work with Bellsouth to do this... supposedly they offered notification by phone call, and by pager. Never could get either to work. But then several features were never setup right from the initial ordering. They "forgot" to order the toll-free number. The voicemail price wasn't as quoted. The notification wasn't setup. Call forwarding never worked right. The while trying to straighten out thier screwup, they were charging me for "service change" charges.
I finally had them pull the VM and install IVM from http://www.nch.com.au/ivm/index.html
Pricing runs from $19 to $175 (on sale) depending on features/lines. The basic version does 1 line but no menuing. The small business $48 does 1 menu level only. Pro and Enterprise do multilevel programming. Their 1-3 lines and 4-64 lines respectively and cost $85 and $175 - again 1/2 price sale amounts. The neatest feature is the notification. Can email, call you, or FTP voice messages. They have a trial version too.
