Another reason why I love Google Voice...

ME: headphones
Back in June, I missed a call from a number I didn't recognize, so I googled it.  I found a couple of entries on some bulletin boards referencing the number, and they all said the caller was trying to scam people.  I didn't want to have to deal with it, so I created an entry in my Google address book, gave the entry the Mr. Yuk face, then directed Google Voice to send calls from that number directly to voicemail.  If it was something important, I reasoned, whoever was calling would leave me a message.  Then I forgot about it.

Just today, I decided to look over my missed call list in Google Voice, and I noticed that the number had called me yesterday afternoon.  I decided to scroll back and see how often this rule had saved me some aggravation, and this is what I saw...

That number had called me 14 times since mid-June, and I wasn't even aware of it until I looked at this log.  I'm not worried because, like I said, if it was important, whoever it was would have left a message on my voicemail so I could call them back.

This is the kind of wonderfulness Google Voice does for me. :)
