"I think one of my favorite songs is 'Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses'," says Charlie with a grin. "For one thing, my name's in it. But more than that, I DO have a good life and a good wife, Eve, who I love a whole lot. Me being on the road all the time makes it hard on her, so staying in touch is important. It used to be CB radios and payphones, but it was always hard for her to get a hold of me.
These days, I carry a cell phone that's got one of those nationwide plans, but I don't care what they show in the commercials - there are still plenty of places where you can't 'hear me know'. Getting me when she needed me was still hit-and-miss. That's changed since I got PhonePlusPlus.
Now, Eve doesn't have to worry about trying to find out whether I'm on my cell, on the road, or in a motel room for the night. All I have to do is program the follow-me feature and Genie* will find me wherever I am. When Evie calls, it will ring on my cell phone, at the motel, or wherever else I might be. If I'm asleep or can't take the call, Genie* will take a message for me, which I can pick up from any phone or even online. And Genie* makes sure I know when I have a message waiting for me - she'll page me until I get it.
Eve and I both signed up for PhonePlusPlus, so she has her own Genie Number* too, which means we can leave each other messages for free. We even got two GenieCard Visaź Prepaid Cards. On payday, my check goes straight to her GenieCard so she can pay bills and rent and stuff. Then she can send spending money to me on my card while I'm on the road and it doesn't cost anything like wiring money used to. I can withdraw cash at any ATM displaying the Visa and/or Interlink brand marks, or use my card wherever Visa debit cards are accepted, which is perfect when I'm in a new city every day. Also, when I need money on the road for gas or repairs or whatever, my boss can send it straight to my GenieCard for free. He doesn't even have to worry about exactly where I am, because it works at any merchant location or ATM displaying the Visa and/or Interlink brand marks.
I use my PhonePlusPlus with my company too. Now my dispatchers can get to me as soon as they need to, without having to try three different numbers. That's why I get more jobs than any other driver I know - because I'm easy to reach. I always get the message and I always call back . I'm a professional.
