    I found this great app (well its been out for a while but I barely found out about it).

    For anyone who didnt know, there's a app that takes your call straight to the voicemail of the person's mobile phone you are wanting to leave a message with. Its called " Slydial " and its Free .

    Comes in handy for when you need to talk to someone you really dont want, or cant talk to at the moment. (boss, coworkers, etc).

    From their website :

    I've tried it and it works, and as far as I know, its the only app that offers this. This can also be used from regular phones, but you have to dial a number before you can dial the number of the person you are wanting to leave a voicemail to. This app makes it so much easier letting you choose from the contacts in your phone.

    Thanks for this find! I've used slydial in the past and never thought to look for an app. I'll definitely be adding this one :)

    You can do this through your voicemail already. After listening to your messages or hearing you have no messages, you hear the option "To send a message, press _____." Dial the person's number, record the message and it goes straight to their voicemail.

    This is a good workaround for VVM users though.

    I will download this to use when my boss calls me on my day off.

    Ignore call.
    Leave voice mail; returning your call guess I missed you.
    Next day, hey I called ou back, pickup your phone next time! :p

    I believe this method only works if you're on the same carrier. Slydial works across carriers.

    I have this app for my blackberry and iphone. Odd thing is that they are both free yet the iphone version forces you to listen to advertisements while the blackberry doesnt.
