Slydial Releases Beta App

If you're not familiar with Slydial , it's a great service that lets you "dial in" to a persons voicemail directly and leave them a message. Great if you're short on time, just want to leave a quick note, or if you are too anxious to talk to that blind date but wanna make sure he/she meets you on time. The service is available by dialing into a number, then entering the mobile number of the person you are trying to reach. Their new BlackBerry beta application makes it easier than before, as you simply start the application, then pick the contact you want to slydial. The app cuts down the steps as you don't have to remember any extra numbers or wait to dial in. The free service is ad supported, so keep in mind you'll have to listen to a short commerical when using the service. A paid version is also available. You can download the beta app OTA here:

* Update/Warning - slydial dials a 732 area number. Be advised their could be long distance charges depending where you are at.

Slydial Releases Beta App


i have a lady that is part of my condo assoc. i really hate talking to her. she is so rude and i don't like to talk rude back to women. this is perfect. i never have to talk to her. i already had the number to do this, but the download makes is so much easier.

when calling from a land line, works great. however, i downloaded the app and it rang the cell phone i was trying to slydial, and i had to enter the number myself, even tho the app is supposed to do it for you, or at least thats what the description lead me to believe.

I have been using the service for a while and love it, I downloaded the App and done a few tests it works great for me ;-)

Calling Alltel user to Alltel user this already is available by dialing #xxx-xxx-xxxx it goes right into the voice mail.

But this will be great to have for all other providers.

Verizon to verizon is pretty simple to do just a few extra steps. i love how easy it is as the app does all the work, next stop, Voice initiated slydialing! thanks!!

when I use it the program call area code 723. Is this long distance? (I'm in 416)
Are people using this being charged long distance?

trying the slydial beta, an issue i have is with a freeze when using the app from the address book contacts .when slydialing from contacts list the app freezes up and will not close and just hangs after slydialing. when slydialing from the icon seems to work fairly ok, could be an issue with the storm theme for pearl im using (transparent) ,the only way to get it to close is to hit end (continues to run in the background) and will not close at all ,then a soft reset is needed to release the freeze - annoying
