David Pogue of the New York Times is starting a campaign to get rid of the 15 seconds of instructions that you get when you call a voice mail. As part of that campaign,many are emailing Sprint and other carriers to complain. One person (semifamous) has posted instructions for getting rid of the message on your phone:

*
1. *Call Your Voicemail*
2. *At the menu, press 3 for Personal Options*
3. *Press 2 for Greeting*
4. *Press 1 to change the greeting.*
5. *To enable/disable the instructions, press 3*

I did not know this, and it is great.
