Frequently Asked Questions

How can I forward voicemail to email?

We’ll take of it for you. When you sign up for Grasshopper with your email address, we automatically designate that email as the destination for any new voicemail messages. Of course, you can change the email address we send to at any time.

Will I be notified of new voicemails with Grasshopper?

Yes. Our iPhone and Android apps will push notifications to your phone whenever you have a new voicemail (same for missed calls or texts). With our voicemail to email service, you’ll also get email notifications, plus the voicemail itself as an MP3 attachment.

How many messages can Grasshopper store and for how long?

There’s no limit to how many messages we store for your online voicemail, but we only hold on to them for 30 days.

Can I record my own voicemail greetings?

Of course! You can record your own voicemail greetings via phone, or you can upload your voicemail greetings from your computer. You can also use our Grasshopper voice studio to get professionally recorded messages for a small cost.

Can I download and save my voicemail messages?

Anytime you want! Just sign in to your online Grasshopper account and select Download from the message you want to store. Or, you can simply grab the voicemail MP3 attachment from your inbox, because Grasshopper automatically sends voicemail to email whenever you have a new message.

How many voicemail extensions can I have

Depends on the Grasshopper plan you choose. See our plans & pricing. For every extension you create, you get a separate virtual voicemail box. That way, each of your employees can easily check their own messages and customize their greetings.
