Online Service Offers Phone Call Privacy

A new, free service lets you take control of who you wish to talk to on the phone. And its creators believe it could become the next wave of virtual communication. PrivatePhone is a free phone-number and voice-mail service created by NetZeroVoice. All calls go straight to voice mail and you are alerted to the new message via e-mail or through a text message on your cell phone. Users can check the message over the phone or online.
