This is certainly no new news, but I’m fairly sure many aren’t aware of this simple feature.
Say you left your phone at home and you were expecting a call, but your friend remembered his phone — tough luck, right? Nope (obviously, or I wouldn’t have made this post).
Here’s what you can do…just pick up any phone and do the following:
- Dial your 10-digit wireless number.
- Press the * key when you hear your personal greeting.
- Enter your personal passcode.
- Follow the voice prompts.
I’ve used this product multiple times myself, so I thought it would be worthwhile posting it for anyone else looking for a web flash player. The great thing about it is it is very versatile, customizable, and FREE. The JW FLV Media player is suitable to handle FLV, MP4, MP3, AAC, JPG, PNG and GIF formats.
The player, which can play both audio and video, was written by Jeroen Wijering quite a while ago and became very successful. He has since ran with the success and co-founded Longtail Video.
A useful thing to do with this player is to download a copy onto your computer. You can then load FLV’s you’ve downloaded from Youtube, etc. into it and play them offline. This eliminates the need to install a bloated FLV player onto your PC (which likely isn’t a problem for most, but meh.).
