  1. I can log in to my voicemail but regardless of browser, I can not listen to the messages because I am told a plugin is required. i know how to install a necessary plug in in Windows but not with Android. Anybody check their voicemail on a smartphone? Don
  2. Is there way to save this? I glance at messages and see no new ones, but then I find one or two new messages at the top of the list because they are sorted by something other than date. Seems reasonable that there should be a way to make them automatically default to being sorted by date. Running 5.10 on XP. Don
  3. This is with a Way2Call USB Hi-Phone Lite which is a device I have had good luck with. Something is not too smooth w Win7/64. There is a totally unpredictable pause after a key press before the next wav. file, (mailbox greeting and instructions) plays. Dead air could be nothing or 15 seconds. Likewise the beep signifying now you can leave your message. So I had an unused little netbook lying around with only 1 gig of ram, 1.6 dual core processor, etc. etc., -- hardly state of the art hardware -- and running Windows XP. It is dedicated to the IVM software and nothing else so no security issues. I do use Web access to it, but I closed every port except the one for IVM's message server. File and print sharing, etc. is turned off. So far flawless and no timing issues -- unlike the box with an almost virgin install of Win 7/64 bit and far superior hardware. I don't know if its the IVM software doesn't play well with Win7/64 or the Way2Call drivers. I did try a different USB modem I use with my anti-telemarketer software and I never got it to work with IVM at all. So XP lives! Don in Austin
  4. People complain that IVM cut them off, I look in the log and see "message discarded because it was too short" with a time of 0.0 seconds. Highly intermittent and hard to duplicate. I messed with every setting under the sun and even bought a new Way2Call USB telephony device to no avail. The problem would not occur with countless test calls, seem to be fixed and then come back randomly. But I had an epiphany! In order to be able to instantly shut down IVM when I chose to pick up the phone from a customer I wanted to talk with immediately, I assigned touch-tone key "8" to immediate hang-up. "8" should be grayed out in the choices for key press commands because it is very close in pitch to the "beep" that signifies now you leave your message. But it is not quite close enough to shut down IVM consistently! So I simply assigned immediate hang-up to "6." The "leave your message at the sound of the beep.." beep is the default wav/ file that came with the program. Of course, a person could re-record this wav. file with a bell, buzzer or anything else that doesn't emulate a key press. Don in Austin
  5. Anybody know if this works well and is stable? I have a Way2Call USB telephony device. They have 64 bit drivers for it. Don
  6. I upgraded to 4.03 and still cannot add anymore junk callers to the blacklist despite being told by NCH that the list would accept as many entries as I wanted. As it stand now I have to delete a junk caller to add one. Will this ever be fixed or do I need to get junk caller software elsewhere? Don
  7. Just google "NCH IVM download." There are lots of shareware/trial software download sites with older versions. I am guessing you want 3.07 (??) If you can't find it -- but you should be able to -- I think I have a copy still. NCH only keeps the latest versions for download. Don in Austin Texas
  8. I have been building a list of telemarketers to block. Unfortunately the list appears full and I can't type in any more. I really don't want to take any of these scumbags off the blacklist. I am using 3.07. If anybody knows a way around this problem I would appreciate it. FWIW I wish the programmers had a friendlier way to enter blacklist numbers in the first place. A drop-down list with a space for a description of the banned caller would be nice. The current format makes the list extremely awkward to manage. Don in Austin

    disengage IVM

    Just assign hangup function to a key. I push "8" to make IVM hangup. Don
  10. Unless you get a real telephony device -- perhaps a Dialogic card, or the Way2Call USB, you will have problems. PC modems that double as voice do not do voice well at all. I bought a Dialogic card from some surplus dealer and it works flawlessly. I used to use a Way2Call phone device but something happened with the telco and the Way2Call no longer read caller ID. Before that I tried many voice modems but NONE were reliable. Don in Austin
  11. This can be done. There is an option to select number of rings and message according to business hours. See option "auto-hours." Set for 10 rings or so during business hours and should the receptionist not get to the call even after ten rings you use one selected message. After hours set to 4 rings and use a different message. For holidays you will have to manually change to a special Christmas vacation message or whatever. All outgoing messages can be saved and simply reloaded. You do not have to re-record every time. Don
  12. I appreciate the ability to block callers by caller ID. However, typing them into the little window is awkward to say the least and there is no easy way to identify the numbers if you wished to edit the list. It would be nice if a box would open up to manage the blocked caller list with columns for both the phone #s and a description so callers could be added or removed from the blacklist easily.

  14. I could never make that board work either.
  15. I use a Way2Call telephony device. Before I got it I had tried a great many voice modems and none were really satisfactory at all. The Way2Call USB device givex excellent sound quality and always knows when to and when NOT TO hang up. The Way2Call does. I could not get it to work at all and returned it. Don
