If you don’t know where it’s from, the message plays before you leave a voice message on someone’s cellular telephone.
That automated message is really annoying and I can’t figure out how to remove from my phone or if there’s a way to bypass it on others’ phones. I searched google and found no help so far, unless you’re with Cingular.
I’ll call up the technical support at Verizon in the next day or two and ask them how.
Update: If you’re calling a phone number that has Verizon or Sprint as their Company, just pressing 1 will take you directly to the answering machine.
