Okay, it seems pretty cool. :) I just tried it and did let me leave a voicemail for someone. I also was able to go into my sent messages and then listen to the message I had just left for them.

Now they just need to add the direct link to the address book:
http://www.plentyoffish.com/j_phonecontacts.aspx

If you signed up it will let you into that and let you change how you get your calls.

That is an excellent idea. I tried it today with a friend, and it worked. I thought it would be delivered as a text message, but apparently it came as an email. Anyway, I'd like to take this opporunity to thank you for allowing us this "free ride".
Also, while I'm at it, I'd like to offer a suggestion.
If and when you feel like adding extra features, how about a way of knowing what percentage of messages a user replies to. This way, we won't bother sending a message to someone who for example, only answers 3% of the messages received....
I know it is possible, since a pay site I used to be on had this feature, and I found it very useful. Not to sound unappreciative, just a suggestion.
Thanks again.

What happens if you want to remove your information from it? I mean is it something simple to do?

I had a friend that got the invalid number problem as well last night. I watched him do it so I know he did it exactly like I did. I also know that his number does show up correctly on caller ID.

You need to go into a profile, click on the option to send them a voicemail (it's under the contact them now button). It will then prompt you to enter your phone number and PIN. The next step is to call a phone number it shows you and enter the validation code. After that it will give you phone numbers to dial for each person.

AND this means you will be paying a premium long distance rate from Virginia to Ohio ?

OR WILL THE LONG DISTANCE CHARGE BE TO SOME OBSCURE SERVER IN INDIA ???????????

You can clearly see what area code you are dialing. If a number on the other end reroutes it you can not be charged for that unless you have given that company billing information. We aren't giving anything of that sort. Most people in this day and age have free long distance. Such new technology as the cell phone and internet phones has made the days of actually paying per call a thing nearing extinction.

Don't feel bad. It isn't working for me either still. I can't seem to figure it out. When I go to test it, I don't have an option to leave a voice mail... just the option to send an SMS message. Wait a minute... let me check something out. It just came to me .

OK.... now I get it I think. Once I click on the link below someones picture I get the option to call a number or send an SMS. I called the number and left a message. It sent it and put it in my sent folder. I can listen to it but now I'll wait and see if the other end gets it. It is giving me a 314 area code which is in state but long distance. Thank God for the free long distance on the good old cell phone .

How do you manage to offer these things on a free dating site?

And, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal, he does it working about 10 hours a week with 1.5 employees...and made $10 million dollars! Not bad work when you can get it!

Same here!!!! It worked fine for me the first time I used it, but now I get the "User Already Exists" message. I am certain I am using the same PIN as when I did it the first time.

I think this new Voice mail and anonymous telephone connection system (Jangl) is an AWESOME new feature for POF and any criticism of it must be based on pure ignorance.

This new system is basically combining a telephone based dating service like Lavalife-By-Phone with an on-line dating service. Combining the two like this is a concept that is very long over due frankly. The phone based systems have always had some advantages in that you actually hear the person's voice in their intro profile and in any voice mail they leave for you. A person's voice and mannerism on the phone can tell you a LOT about who they are. Also, the phone based systems have always been better than the on-line systems at cutting through the BS of getting to the actual interactive phone conversation stage, which, in my opinion, is usually a critical first step to determining if you have any chemistry with the person. The problem with the telephone dating systems is that you have no idea what the person you're talking to really looks like and their introduction profile just can't have nearly as much information in it as an on-line service like POF. I used to ask women on theses phone systems if they had photos on-line anywhere and I even used to send them to visit my POF profile. By adding the voice service to POF we now have the best of both worlds!!

Now, if we can just get it to work I'll be VERY happy.

There was a problem and jangl didn't send me 4,000 or so new users phone numbers that signed up yesterday. It should all be fixed now.

(Thank you for adding this service. I am sure it will compliment your existing and very nice service. Just a note (don't hate me) but received is spelled incorrectly in a number of places in admin messages. Just wanted to let you know...it is a great sight and amazing that you are running it out of your apartment)

Dont hate me but its a site not a sight. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
No offense intended.

Ok I got it working, so the next obvious progression should be the ability for us to leave sound clips on our profiles, then people can hear what our voices sound like.

I think it is a great feature....but I don't want to use it, and won't be activating it....however: ADMIN....if someone sends me a voicemail, can I refuse it without blocking the user? If one of my friends sends it, I don't want to have to block them, just the voicemail! Is that possible?
