While on a business trip to Los Angeles in 2003, James Siminoff was out to dinner with friends: William Wachtel and his son, Jesse Wachtel. Before they could sit down, William had to sort through a 20 minute backlog of voicemails gathered during a day filled with meetings. Jesse commented to James, “Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just read your voicemail?” At the time, James was working with voice recognition technologies and had a creative idea on how to build a system that would enable people to stop listening to voicemail and READ IT and with that, PhoneTag was born.
