    How is a text message more disruptive then typing notes?

    >Why go to the meeting if you are going to text message about other matters.


    Mandatory meeting? The individual has a brain that can handle more then
    one input at a time?

    In my call center days I could monitor a call on my headset, listen to
    one or two reps beside me, answer messages from several reps at once all
    while answering customer email.

    I was typing almost constantly, massager first priority, email second.
    I can prove I was listening to at least two calls at once (one on the
    headset, the other the nearest people to me) because I'd write up
    reports on what they ****ed up on the call after the fact.

    That's not my experience, or that of many others. For example, I might send a
    message to an assistant to "bring last month's report to the meeting ASAP."
    Otherwise I would have to leave the meeting to get it, thus disrupting the
    meeting and/or reducing my participation. Or it might become clear that the
    meeting would run well over its allotted time, so I might send a message that
    I "can't get together at 11am is planned -- how about this afternoon?" The
    list of valid and useful purposes goes on and on.

    Leaving the meeting would give a better impression? Or making a voice call
    from the meeting room? Don't think so.

    The tricky bit there is "presumed" -- presumptions can and do vary.

    A great many of them -- see my other posts.

    Indeed -- because it tends to be less disruptive and more effective than the
    available alternatives.

    How the heck can you possibly do that?! Even if the phone supports the
    feature, I can't really type on the key pad while holding the phone to my
    head to talk to somebody. I wouldn't even be able to concentrate on what I'm
    saying enough to handle this. You're a better juggler than me.

    That's why god invented headsets.

    Some of us can type and talk at the same time. I picked up the skill
    when I was working in a call center, but it's not that hard for anybody
    to learn.

    Re: Voicemail message is getting lost

    You'll like this: Verizon has been matter of fact that voicemail messages
    do not get lost, and they do not get delayed. Just last week, we had 10
    different people call in to report delayed messages; and each went to tech
    support (tier 2) and each referenced in addition to their own, a "common"
    phone number that was also having problems. As person 1-10 called in, one
    after another, cs and then to level 2, each referred to their own number and
    "common" phone number; Each tech said there had been NO reports of delayed
    messages. Obviously there are no problems with voicemail? Go figure.
