YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus

In the United States, YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus is a popular (and free) visual voicemail application. In my opinion, it’s the way voicemail services should be. Think about it. Why should we have to go through voice prompts and have to skip through messages so clumsily? With YouMail, voicemail can be scanned through to access them in the order you want to. It’s especially helpful to be able to look at the time of call, the caller’s name and the message length (supports up to 2 minutes in length). What you do with your messages is up to you. You can forward off messages as blog posts, tweets, to Facebook or even archive them for life. Additionally, you can manage unwanted callers, record personal greetings, and actually read the voicemail message instead of listening to it. YouMail was recently updated to version 2.3.4. Among its updates, two stand out as substantial additions:

One-Touch Community Greetings and Management. A new navigation bar lets you easily access greeting settings, like what greetings play for your callers, and how you want to handle “blocked” numbers. In addition, the YouMail greetings community, with tens of thousands of greetings, is just a few clicks away from within the app itself.

Number Search Available In-App. It's YouMail's belief that once you receive a call from an unwanted number, you should never have to receive a call from that number again. In this latest update, YouMail's Caller Search lets you quickly do a Google search right from the “menu” key, so you’ll know the real story behind any phone number you're not familiar with.

YouMail offers a free service, as well as premium services. Through the Premium service, you are able to save 5000+ messages and support messages that are 5 minutes in length or longer. You also get Privacy Manager – enabling you to get phone numbers with Blocked or Unknown numbers. The app itself is free from the CrackBerry AppStore. If you want to upgrade to a premium service, rates start at just $1.99 per month.

Contest: We have 20 annual basic transcription packages to be won. That's a savings of $8.99/month. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to be entered. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST.

YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus updated to version 2.3.4 - 20 copies to be won!!



Grrr to the lack of 9780 support. I was hoping to see if it would work in Canada, but the "Sign Up" link won't even open after installing the app :-(

Been using YouMail for just over a year now, and I LOVE it. I always hated listening to my voicemails and when i found out that YouMail would transcribe them I had to try it.. Been using it ever since.

I LOVE YouMail. Have been using it for almost two years and absolutely love it. Would love a Premium account, though. :-)

What! I LOVE YOUMAIL! It's one of first 4 icons on my storm. Very useful. I just installed it on 2 friends blackberries last Sunday. They love it too.

I would be so grateful to win the premium service. Can't wait to find out!

this app is one of my favorite apps on my Storm 2.....I would love to have the pro version....thanks again for another chance to win something.....good luck to all....

I haven't seen this type of app before. I will check it out on my storm and see how it works.
Looks like a really handy app

I love the feature where you can choose specific greetings per caller and handle unwanted callers and "blocked" numbers!

I have used YouMail off and on for the last couple years it's been around (or at least since I've known about it) and it's definitely a great service!

I'd love to win an annual subscription one time for free! Thanks CrackBerry and YouMail for putting this contest on! Good luck to everyone else whom enters :)

Love youmail, I have brought a good number of people to it as well. :)

Would love free transcriptions for a year!

Oh man I would love this I have sprint and with no native vvm client this would be cool. Like yvvm but hated the adds on the free version this would be perfect

I love YouMail.. A transcription service would be a great value-add. Thanks for allowing me to participate in the drawing.

Love to win something! Did not realize that visual voice mail is free...yippee! THANKS for the information!!

wow, i never thought of that....visual voicemail, finally ill understand those fuzzy phone numbers they make me call back.

.. this is a very nice app.. the review is thorough about what it does.. two thumbs up to the writer!! count me in please!!

That would be a great prize... fumbling through voicemail is such a hassle. Thanks also for the info about the app itself!

would be interested to try a visual voicemail out, but i have heard that this particular app will not work on Rogers :( .... but hopefully im wrong and I win a copy!

Would be great to win this. Have looked at YouMail several times in the past and considered trying it. Would love to try this now.

Nice, Looks very interesting.... Wonder if it's worth using I don't seem to get to many voice mails myself but that can easily change I might have to stop answering the phone just to try it out ;)

It wouldn't make Big Red very happy if I cancelled my visual voice mail with them, but I totally would if I won this app.

Hey now! This is something I can REALLY use! I would love to win this, but regardless I can use this, and will need to get it!

YouMail Plus is the gold standard of visual voicemail and should be on my phone! :) Thanks CrackBerry and YouMail!

YES! This would be my new favorite app!! I hate punching in a password to listen to my voicemail..hook it up CB!!

About a year ago I replaced my native carrier vm with YouMail, and since then, Ive never looked back! YouMail is a true innovation. Since Ive only been using the basic version, it would be great to win a premium subscription so I can truly take my visual voicemail to the next level and beyond!


I have used the free version for almost 2 years and it's fantastic. The ability to personalize messages for individual contacts is awesome!

BEST WAY TO LISTEN TO VOICEMAILS....*hands down* Now if Icould only get rid of those ads....OH HEY!!! CAN I HAVE THAT PRO VERSION YOU'RE GIVING OUT!!?? *Cheers!!


I get a bunch off voice mail cause people don't get that I'm at work and can't answer the phone. This would speed up the calls that I want to check on

I used to use YouMail before Google Voice, I'd love this app please to make switching back a little easier.

Did they say "copies", sweet that means I will have a .00002 percent chance of winning rather than .00001!!! sweet!

Oh, this is definitely going to ease my pain from listening to blitzkrieg speeches combined with ringing background noises.

Thank you.
