Voicemail has become completely useless

Outside the flow==dead! Is voicemail getting old?
A recent study by the marketing research firm Opinion Research Corp. found that cell-phone users, who are under 30, are four times more likely to respond within minutes to text messages than to voicemail.
Google Voice has put it back in the flow a bit by converting voicemails to texts. But, I get so few of these that it hardly matters.

The stark reality-- leaving me a voicemail is next to useless if you have any expectations of reaching me. I suspect I'm not unique in this regard.
