LOS ANGELES, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- With a six-month risk-free trial offer and a new guided tour video that demonstrates simple step-by-step setup, eVoice, a "Radically Better Phone Number" and brand of technology leader j2 Global Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: JCOM), makes it easier than ever for individuals, entrepreneurs and small businesses to sign up for and use one of the industry's leading virtual phone services.  eVoice offers a wide selection of local or toll-free numbers and is the only phone service of its type to offer personalized U.S.-based VIP setup and support for new accounts.  eVoice® is online at www.evoice.com.

Here's how a virtual phone number works: After selecting a local or toll-free number from www.evoice.com, users can customize where calls to that number will ring – such as home, office, or cell phone – up to five phones.  The calls can be set to ring all designated phones at once, or sequentially, one-at-a-time.  This means no more missing important calls or handing out a personal number for business purposes.

Incoming calls are answered by an auto attendant with a customized and professionally recorded greeting that instructs callers to "press 1 for Sales, press 2 for Customer Service," etc.  Each extension can be set to ring any designated phone number.  If a caller leaves a voicemail, the message is transcribed, converted to text and sent as an email.

eVoice offers a host of other features perfect for small businesses who are on a budget but need to maintain a professional image, including: conference calling, call screening, music on hold, dial by name directory, and mobile apps for the iPhone, Android and BlackBerry phones.  

The company's exclusive VIP setup and support provides customers who sign up for second and third tier plans with "white glove" treatment during setup.  After signup, new customers are called directly by a U.S.-based eVoice representative and walked through each aspect of account setup.  An 800 number is then provided for 24/7 direct access to a U.S.-based eVoice customer service representative.

"Our new tutorial video demonstrates why eVoice has become the virtual phone service of choice for so many small business owners today," said Mike Pugh, vice president, marketing for j2 Global Communications, Inc.  "Besides the six-month free trial and affordable monthly plans, the service can be quickly and easily configured and put to use.  A customer could visit www.evoice.com, and literally, in a matter of minutes, have a working business phone number with advanced features normally found on much more expensive, sophisticated systems."
