Grandcentral Review

Grandcentral Grandcentral is my second favorite product from Google (Gmail is first). Ever try to order something for delivery only to have the restaurant deny you because you have a long-distance cell phone as your only number? I have. It happened last night when I tried to order Pizza Hut (stuffed-crust pizza is delicious). So, I fired up my gmail to look up my Grandcentral number. It is a service from Google that gives you a phone number in an area you choose. You can then redirect calls to that number to any other number (I redirect to my cell phone). It also has a bunch of other features like voicemail that you can listen to online, different ringers (although I hate Verizon Ringback), switching phones during the call, and recording the call. Features: Screen Callers Know who’s calling and screen unknown callers ListenIn Hear why someone is calling before taking the call Call Record Record calls on the fly and access recordings online Block Callers Unwanted callers won’t be able to reach you anymore Notifications Receive voicemail notifications via email or SMS Ring Different Phones One number that rings different phones based on who’s calling Greetings Personalize your voicemail greetings by caller or group RingShare Go beyond the ring and choose ringback tones for your callers WebCall Button Let people call you from a web page without showing your number CallSwitch Switch phones in the middle of a call Click2Call Call from your addressbook and save your typing Mobile Access Visual voicemail for your mobile phone
