$50 Visa Gift Card Question of the Week: How Would You Personalize Your ūmi Video Message?

- November 29, 2010 - 13 Comments

Everyone has their own way of customizing their answering machine. Remember the episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza revealed his personalized answering machine to the world?

With Cisco ūmi, you can be even more creative than ever before and customize your own video message. You can have fun recording personalized outgoing messages and share them on Facebook, YouTube or via email. You can also assign your friends and family custom ringtones. Plus, if you’re on the “go,” video messages can be checked from your laptop!

If someone doesn’t pick up using Cisco ūmi, leave them a message…a video message!

  11. Hi Sis, you're probably tired of watching that boring show on Cable so how about getting blown away and be one of the first folks to experience this freak'n cool product called Cisco UMI. Whats UMI? Heck if I know and who cares sister but I think it has something to do with YOU & ME. Just sit down on that ugly couch of yours and make sure you're dressed decent and then follow these ridiculously simple steps on the screen. Heck, maybe after today you'll agree getting that leather sectional we talked about last night.

  12. Hello, Friends & Family - Since you're getting our video message (yes, video!), we are out somewhere in Florida enjoying the sunshine-probably at the beach! One day you'll be able to call us on our video cell phone (yes, I'm sure CiscoUmi will be developing it soon!). Visit Florida and go boogey-boarding with us!
