voice messages - Overview
Trying to coordinate plans with a group of people?
With SMSjunction you can set up Groups (of friends,
band mates, study group members) and send voice
and text messages to all your Group's members
at once via one call to SMSjunction. Don't worry,
you'll always know when you have a new SMSjunction
voice message because we'll send a notification
to your mobile phone.
Read below to learn how to make the most of
your SMSjunction voice messaging experience.
Sending voice messages
When you sign up for SMSjunction you can immediately
start sending voice messages to SMSjunction Groups
and members as soon as you join or start a Group.
Here's how to send a voice message:
Dial SMSjunction's Voice Message System 877-550-SMSjunction.
Next just choose whether you want to send a
message to an individual (a SMSjunction member
you share at least one Group with) or a Group
you belong to. Either way it's easy to select
the particular Group or SMSjunction member to send
your message to.
If you choose to send a message to one of your
Groups just listen to the menu listing of your
Groups and press the appropriate key when you
hear your Group name.
If you want to send a text message to someone
you share a Group with, type the first five
letters of that member's Handle until you hear
the Handle repeated back to you.
Now just record your message and press the #
key when you're done. Don't worry, you can review,
delete, and re-record your message before sending
Once you've sent your voice message, all recipients
will automatically get a text notification sent
to their wireless device alerting them they
have a new voice message from you!
P.S. Channels are one-way only. This means only
the Channel founder can send a message out to
Channel members. Two-way communication is what
Groups are for!

Receiving voice messages
You can get your voice messages either on SMSjunction.com
or by dialing into SMSjunction's Voice Message
System at 877-550-SMSjunction. No matter where
you listen to your voice messages, we'll keep
track of whether it is new or not so you don't
have to hear it twice. (Duh, unless you want
With SMSjunction, each time you receive a new voice
message you'll know immediately because we'll
send a text message to your wireless device.
We'll also show you the handle of the member
who sent it and the name of the Group the message
was sent to - so you can decide if you want
to listen to it now or later. Don't worry, we'll
also include our number 877-550-SMSjunction just
in case you've forgotten.
Remember, you can receive a SMSjunction voice
message from any SMSjunction member you share
at least one Group with. The only type of communication
allowed between SMSjunction members who do not
share a group is an invite to join a Group.
Trust us, we're doing this to protect you.
Listening to voice messages via SMSjunction's Voice
Your first time…
When you first sign up with SMSjunction an validation
code will be sent to the wireless device that
you have registered. Once you have entered the
validation code on SMSjunction.com you're ready
to go. Please note you must register and validate
at least one wireless device to be able to log
in to our Voice Message System.
Once you have validated your wireless device
call 877-550-SMSjunction. To log onto the SMSjunction
Voice Message System you'll need to enter your
10-digit mobile phone number (or pager I.D.)
and PIN number. If you have forgotten your PIN
or Handle, click the "forgot PIN" link on the
login page and we'll send them to your outside
email address (you know, the one you told us
about during registration.)
The first time you dial into the Voice Message
System you will be taken through a brief set-up
process. This consists of a short overview of
the Voice Message System and the opportunity
to record your Handle. Once you have completed
the set-up we'll also let you know if you've
received any invites to Groups, have any new
voice messages or need to record the names of
any Groups you started.
Listening, for real
To listen to your messages just dial 877-550-SMSjunction,
and login. We'll immediately let you know if
there are things you need to take care of (your
"Alerts") and if you have any new voice messages.
And unless you press "0" your new messages will
automatically start playing. It's that easy.
Just so you know, you can always press "0" to
go the main menu. From there, press 2 to play
Once a message has finished playing you can
reply, replay, get envelope information, delete
it or save it. You know, the normal stuff. Even
if you delete it, we'll save a copy in your
message inbox on SMSjunction.com for 30 days.
Listening to voice messages
There are two ways to listen to your voice messages
while online: your message inbox (via the Read
Messages link on your nav bar) and the SMSjunction
Messenger which you can launch by clicking the
link on the nav bar.
Listening to voice messages via your Message
Your SMSjunction message inbox is a little different
from a conventional email inbox because you
can listen to your SMSjunction voice messages here
in addition to reading your text messages!
Also, you don't delete your messages from your
SMSjunction message inbox since we automatically
keep them on SMSjunction's web site for 30 days
from the date you receive them. Think of your
inbox as a running list of all the voice messages
you've been sent in the last 30 days. So, even
if you delete a voice message from the Voice
Message System, it will still be saved here
(but it won't be marked as "new").
To get to your message inbox, simply click the
Read Messages link on your nav bar. Here you
can see all the voice (and text) messages sent
to you or one of your Groups. These messages
will be sorted by most recent message first.
Voice messages will be noted by a special icon
and only the messages you haven't already heard
on the Voice Message System will be marked as
"new." Click on the sound icon and your message
will start playing. Cool, huh?
If you only want to see messages for a particular
Group or Channel you belong to simply go to
that Group's or Channel's Home page. There you'll
see the message inbox just for that Group. Again,
this is sorted most recent message first, text
messages and voice messages mixed together.
Listening via the SMSjunction Messenger
Going to be online for a while? Why not redirect
your voice messages to the SMSjunction Messenger.
Just click the link from the nav bar and instantly
all your notifications about new voice messages
are automatically routed here instead of your
wireless device. Even if you decide you want
to surf different sites you'll still know when
you have a new SMSjunction voice (or text) message.
If you quit your browser, your notifications
and messages will automatically be returned
back to your wireless device or email (whichever
you have specified in your Settings/Devices
