      GrandCentral is a catchall voice mail and messaging service that you can monitor right in your browser. When you sign up, you get a new phone number. When people call this number, the system takes their names (the first time they call; after that, it remembers), and rings all of your telephones for you at the same time--your desk, your mobile, your home--and lets you pick up the call from any of them.

      GrandCentral allows you to reject calls after you hear the name of the person calling; define which of your phones ring based on who is calling and when (so work calls don't ring you at home); send some numbers to spam permanently; and even listen in on voice mail as it's being left so that you can pick up if you want to. You also get a permanent record of all your incoming calls. And you can use GrandCentral to place calls to people, too.
