The magic of electrons

Vonage voicemail has not been picking up all my missed calls lately, so this morning I activated for the first time the answering machine on my home connection, recorded a new message and set it to answer on 3 rings.

From work I called my home number, heard the new message, left a few words on the machine and hung up.

Moments later my cell phone sang out that I had a text message - from Vonage voicemail saying I had a message. Called into Vonage voicemail and heard the message I'd left on my home machine. Logging into Vonage, the message is in their queue, and I was able to play it from their web page too. Hmmm. Must see if it's on the machine as well.

It's not too scary - my phone is set up to blink when i have Vonage voicemail. But I expected to hear the Vonage message, in that case.
