SBC acquired its former parent company, AT&T, in 2005, and then changed its name to AT&T Inc. But the company continues to offer phone features including Call Notes voice messaging service. Call Notes allows callers to leave the individual a message when their calls go unanswered. This feature is offered for an additional monthly fee to AT&T subscribers. Once your voice mail is set up you can check your messages from any phone with no additional fees assessed.
