Sure, we have all seen the pictures and read the forums information surrounding Visual Voicemail on BlackBerry devices other than the Storm. At this point it's not a maybe of it is coming but more of a when is it coming situation. BGR posted a sceeenshot from the AT&T online account system and users were also filling the CrackBerry email address full of information about BlackBerry Visual Voicemail being available to add to their account. Of course, when requesting the service to be added actually lead to an error message many realized AT&T had just messed up and at this point have long since removed the option from users OLAM accounts. But what's more curious here is the current price point it shows for the service is $0. Assuming AT&T didn't just fill that in as an option it looks like Visual Voicemail may be coming to non-Verizon customers free of charge, I can dig that! Still no word on when but surely sooner then later since AT&T felt compelled to input it into customer facing systems.

Visual VoiceMail On AT&T Coming Sooner Then Later?

I think with the growing number of free third party VVM applications, along with AT&T's free VVM (if this holds true), then Verizon should get with the program eventually... I mean, look at their recent unlocking of GPS...

probably had to many people calling in about why it wouldn't activate. I also found it strange that as something that was free it had to be provisioned.

It probably has to do with the routing of the voicemail if anything. iPhone VVM has it own SOC code in the billing system, because it goes to an iPhone Voicemail server. So I would assume it to be the same thing here.

AT&T has had visual voice mail since the release of the first gen iPhone. They were to first to offer network provided Visual Voicemail on a device. Visual Voicemail is currently only available the iPhone, like VZW with the Storm, but it should come as a surprise to no one that AT&T would launch it for Blackberry as well.

Sooner... then later? That makes no sense. I assume you mean sooner than later. I know this is just a blog, but geez...

Well I had this same feature available yesterday but tonight it seems to be MIA...oh well...as long as its in the works thats all I really care about
