    Default Iphone Apps

    There was a thread about different apps but i cant seem to find it. I want a app that diverts my calls from 9 to 5 so i can mow without having to answer the phone as i miss calls and what not as i dont here it ring. I also want a app that an remember the times my offsider worked. does anyone know of any other decent apps.

    i reckon if you divert em automatically you lose a lot of business,

    if it rings and then goes to message, and they dont LEAVE a message, at least you can look at the number and ring em back

    set your divert to divert quicker, but leave the thing ring.

    i get a lot of business from answering the thing or ringing back straightaway, if you snooze you lose.

    i picked up a new regular today , i went and mowed it right away, while i was there i heard her phone ring and her tell someone " no ive already GOT someone . . . NO, NO, hes ALREADY HERE MOWING . . .good bye"


    that guy didnt get his message quick enough and now i got the work.


    my old sales manager would have KILLED us if we didnt answer the phone, or ring peeps back quickly (if you were already talking ot someone or in a meeting and couldnt answer)

    or if you dont want to answer it, leave it in the truck ?

    you could try the ipen and ipaper app.

    stick a piece of ipaper in the back of your diary and note with the ipen when he works

    i dont see how an app can sort it out any better.


    everyone makes things SO HARD these days with all the computers and apps, all the gadgets and toys, then they still write the info out on a piece of paper when a call comes in, then transfer it all to the pc, then print out run sheets, write notes on the sheets, transfer that bvack to the pc, print out and mail or email invoices round the world wide web, text people about stuff etc.

    just gotta be organised and true to your system. keep it simple, stewart.

    if you dont work IT, it wont work for YOU

    dont mean to be rough, sorry if i come across that way, but why make it hard on yerself?

    Thats why i want the phoone diverted to the people that answer it for me and book in the jobs. But i often forget to turn on and off call forwarding. The service i use costs me $85 a month and they answer my phone within 4 rings and they then turn around and email me all the details of the customer and what it is they want done. They however start work at 9 and finish at 5.

    Get a phone with a strong vibration signal. Iphones have too weak a vibration compared to my old Samsung. I miss calls too because most of the time I don't feel the vibration or hear it over the mower.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather.....not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car!!!

    Get a 1300 number they are good someone answers the phone takes the details and sends you a text message. when you get back in the car you ring them. Not that expensive either. http://www.alltel.com.au/
