After a few days of utilizing my Cox Digital Phone Service through the Mobile Connect App, life seems to be a little less hectic. Even though my answering machine still blinks uncontrollably from the calls I’ve missed, I have found myself checking the call log on my Cox Mobile Connect App to see who had called me, and if it happened to be my parents, then I could call back right away. Even better is when I am away from home, I can check in to see what calls I have missed. I can also see the calls that have gone out, so if my twins call their buddy in China, I know to expect a hefty long distance bill that month.
Another really great use of the Mobile Connect App is the Call Log. There is a More Options selection which allows you to decide what to do with the incoming and outgoing calls being filtered into your phone from your land line number. How cool is this? You can select one of the numbers from your Call Log then either Call Back, Send Text Message, Create New Contact, or Save to Existing Contact right on your iPhone or Android. Love that!
The one feature that is not yet available in the Las Vegas area is the Voicemail to Text, which will be ah-may-zing! I cannot wait for that! No more overflowing voice messages that are too cumbersome to go through at that point. I anxiously await the arrival of that feature!
My parents have enjoyed the Mobile Connect App as well. They have found it a great tool since my grandmother calls often and she won’t leave a message on the answering machine. This way, if my mom is out and about, and can’t get in touch with my grandmother, she at least knows if and when she tried to call. Of course, my father, the techie, is also looking forward to the Voicemail to Text feature to become available in Las Vegas. Additionally, my mother is about to have a knee replacement, and lives in a rather large home, which makes the TV Caller ID feature a winner in their house!
There are some other really cool features offered with the Cox Digital Phone Service, like enhanced 911 which sends an actual GPS location of where the phone call took place. There is still time to take advantage of the special Cox Digital Phone Service monthly rate of $9.99. You have until March 15th to get signed up with this great price, and better yet, you get to keep your current phone number!
