JPMorgan Chase to eliminate voicemail

JPMorgan Chase has joined the 21st Century.

A bank executive said at a conference today that the company’s going to start phasing out voicemail for some of its employees. Which I get — cell phones and email and texting and all that.

Here’s the kicker though, and maybe this was just me — JPMorgan is still paying $10 a month per employee for corporate voicemail.

Seems kinda steep.
