If you're so addicted to America's celebrity culture that you'd love to have a famous voice answer your cell phone, then Alltel has an answer (of sorts) for you. Today the carrier announced its new Voicemail Max program, which will enable customers to personalize their outgoing voice-mail greetings with the voices of actors, comedians, celebrity impersonators, and musical artists. Among the available content is voice clips from such luminaries as Larry the Cable Guy, Steve Harvey, Orlando Jones, T.I., and popular voices from the cast of Reno 911!. Though that's not the most A-list list that I've seen, Orlando Jones is a start. But I have to admit that I had to ask Bonnie Cha who T.I. is.
Alltel says it has a selection of 500 audio clips in such categories as hip-hop, rock stars, sports, business, holiday, and cartoons. You can browse and preview for free, but greetings are $2.99 each. Also, Voicemail Max is available only on select Alltel cell phones.
