    You can hear the person calling you talk without answering your phone

    A co-worker said that a Verizon salesperson said that the Incredible has a setting you can use that you can hear the person calling you (if they're talking - say to someone else close by) before you answer the phone. Is this true and if so how is it done?

    Thanks for the help

    Hearing someone speak before you answer the call? That sounds pretty far-fetched.

    No way....thats impossible. There's no connection with the person calling until you answer the phone.

    that would be nice to have if you get a lot of calls from restricted #'s and then you will be able to tell if they are prank calling you or if it is something you want to actually answer.

    If you use Google Voice you can listen in on messages being left and choose to interrupt and take the call.

    Congrats, Taco- 1,000 posts! And remind me to tell you guys the story about the old man (I'm talking 80s or 90s, not old as in 30s- lol) who stalked me on my cell phone while I worked in the Senate. At the time the only option for most people was to change phone numbers- (this was a few years ago- before google voice and that sort of thing). Except when you have the Capitol Police on your side...

    Will open Off-Topic Fridays in a little while- technically early since it's still Thursday but last week was really late. So, to make up for that, everyone can go more off-topic than usual early.

    Referring to Taco's post, not the OP's: No one answer this. He's just setting the bait for Off-Topic Fridays. Not yet, htc!

    Google Voice is free, flexible, useful, and remarkable.
