Comments:Allowing a machine generated "advertisement" with the digital technology available today could potentially bog down and overload an individuals personal phone system to the point of total chaos. IF an individual wants this sort of thing then they should be reimbursed by the companies advertising and using such a system for the time "taken away" from the consumers available use time. There should also be a "shut off" as in email junk mail or a "fast forward" to bypass or zap such advertisements from their voicemail. This could be done by having the advertisements identify themselves as advertisements allowing the home user to delete in bulk and thus paying a higher price. I see no good reason to allow this sort of thing to consumers willing to pay market price for phone service.
