How to Send a Message from the Web

Why do you hear “Press one to hear your message" when you receive a PostCalls message?

You will hear this message when PostCalls delivers a message to a phone number and the system has difficulty understanding the person answering the call or the answering machine.

If you receive this prompt and press 1 to hear your message, then you are indicating to the system that a live person is on the line. The system will play the message for you two times. 

If 1 is not pressed, then the system treats the call as if it were answered by an answering machine. The system will play the message one time in this scenario.



What is an intercept call?

Typically, Intercept Calls are the tri-tone message that is received from the phone company indicating a phone number is 1) not valid; 2) currently under service; 3) blocked from receiving incoming calls; or 4) all circuits are busy.

You may want to check the phone number(s) to ensure that it was entered correctly. If the phone number was entered correctly, then call the number to determine what message the phone company is indicating.



Can PostCalls deliver to cell phones?

Many cell phone carriers have various and lengthy greetings that may play before or after a personal voicemail greeting. In some instances, because of the length of the personal voice mail greeting, the PostCalls message may play by default resulting in delivery of a partial message.



Can my group members call in and listen to a missed message?

Yes. PostCalls has an optional feature called "PGID", which standard for Public Group ID.

This optional feature gives you the ability to share a PGID number for each group with your group members. The PGID allows a group member to call 1-800-941-5589, enter the PGID number and listen to the current message.

Each message that is listened to deducts a call from your PostCalls account.

The PGID number feature is available to your groups 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

For additional information on activating this feature, contact Customer Care at

Refreshing the page may result in a fully-formed page, however, subsequent refreshes may generate the same problem: a partial page or a page displays scripted source code.
