5 Things Mom Does NOT Want to Hear This Mother’s Day
There are certain faux pas that will get you that unmistakeable look of disapproval from mom, especially on Mother’s Day. When it comes to communication, the team here at VoxOx can help you steer clear of those unnecessary Mother’s Day no-no’s.
1- “I can’t call you today because I’m out of cell phone minutes.”
If you aren’t planning to see your mom on Mother’s Day, then you better figure out a way to call! When you’re out of cell phone minutes, just use VoIP — open up that laptop and give mom a ring. VoxOx can surely hook you up there. Only a penny per minute for calls made in the U.S., Canada, and a slew of other countries.
2- “I’m traveling – even sending a text message would cost me a small fortune.”
But wait… there’s an app for that! If you send your SMS via Wi-Fi, you can avoid those crazy international text messaging rates. It costs only 2 pennies to send a text message internationally when you use the VoxOx Call iPhone app (and the desktop app for that matter). Plus, receiving a text message with VoxOx is always FREE. Don’t believe it? Read this story posted by our sales director Tad who saved $300 while traveling by texting over Wi-Fi.
3- “I’m studying abroad and I can’t make calls at the Internet cafe without getting dirty looks.”
Not necessary. When you don’t have Wi-Fi, you can rely on the VoxOx Call iPhone app to make calls. It uses “callback” functionality, which means that you can use your local cell phone to make international calls for pennies (just don’t use this if your phone is roaming). So, you can call mom from the privacy of your flat from your cell phone without it costing you an arm and a leg.
4- “I tried to find you on chat today, but since I kept signing in and out from my various IM and social networks, I must have missed you!”
Nice try. You could have stayed online all day with no interruptions if you were using VoxOx. We let you plug into your Facebook chat, Gmail chat, AIM, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, even MySpace chat — all in one interface.
If you have an iPhone and the VoxOx Call iPhone app, you have a pocket scanner and fax machine! Snap a shot of the drawing and use the app to fax it for a penny in the U.S. and Canada. (Plus, it’s free to receive faxes with VoxOx.) No iPhone, no problem — you can also fax with VoxOx for the desktop.
What have we learned today? No excuses! Keep mom happy on Mother’s Day by letting her know how special she is. Wish her a great day in your own way and you’ll feel that smile even if you’re across the globe.
