Slydial Connects You Directly to Voicemail

A new service called Slydial connects you directly to to someone's mobile voicemail - without ever having the phone ring. Sneaky.

Here's how it works:

  1. Dial 267-SLYDIAL (267-759-3425) from any landline or mobile phone.
    (It doesn't work if you have caller id blocked on your phone)
  2. At the voice prompt, enter the U.S. mobile phone number of the person you want to slydial.
  3. After a brief ad, you will be directly connected to their voicemail.

I tried this out on my husband's cell phone and it really works. It put me right in his voicemail with no indication that I'd done anything differently. I can think of a few good uses for this. Can you? Here are some from Slydial.
