Technology is supposed to make life easier. Why, then, do I have so many devices? A cell phone, a BlackBerry, iPod, laptop and desktop PCs. Well, one thing that should help — at least with the phone part — is GrandCentral. The most basic feature of this service is that it gives you a phone number and then offers to connect that new phone number to all of the other phones in your life. One phone number rings all of your phones (right now – up to six phones while the service is in beta). The service is free while in beta and GrandCentral says that while there will be a pay service in the future, it will “always offer a free version of GrandCentral, even after beta.”
There are many, many more features of this truely revolutionary service. As GrandCentral puts it:
GrandCentral gives you “One Number…for Life” – a phone number that is not tied to a device or a location, but is tied to you. Use GrandCentral to centralize your communication, customize how your callers are treated, and make sure you never miss a call you want to take (or take a call you want to miss).
GrandCentral will let you define which phones ring, based on who’s calling, and even let you ListenInTM on voicemail before answering the call.
You can also block calls from certain numbers, route different groups of callers to ring different phones (Friends, Family, Work or Others), switch calls between phones on the fly, record your calls, customize voicemail greetings for different callers, upload any MP3 to play as a ringback tone, and save all of your voicemail messages for life.
Just the thing for the lawyer who needs to be available whenever the client calls.
