YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus updated to version 2.5.17 - 5 copies to be won!

By Kerri Neill on 6 Oct 2011 03:50 pm EDT

In June, YouMail Inc. updated their popular Visual Voicemail Plus app to include several great improvements such as One-Touch Community Greetings & Number Search available In-App. Now YouMail Inc. has once again updated their app to version 2.5.17 with even more improvements making your voicemail messages truly visual.

The Visual Voicemail Plus service now features a new and comprehensive Visual Caller ID component that makies it closer to a true call management system for your BlackBerry device. Visual Caller ID visually identifies both missed callers and callers who have left messages with a name, a photo and city/state information, even when the number calling is not in the user’s address book.  This allows you to scan & listen to your voicemail messages in any order you choose. When you add this new addition to the other great features like custom contact greetings (love having one for my kids that says "if you're calling to ask for money, you may as well hang up"), checking messages via your pc, calling voicemail # orvia their  app as well as the option to share messages via email (comes in handy when trying to schedule an appointment for mulitple people), blogs and social network sites, that are already available for free, it pretty much makes other number and voicemail services redundant.

YouMail also offers Premium Services that include everything Visual Voicemail Plus offers as well as larger inbox storage (5,000+ messages), extended recordings (up to 5 min messages & 2 min greetings) and 20+ transcribed messages (message length transcribed varies per service level) based on the level you select starting at $4.99 a month.

This app has come in handy for me since switching from my BlackBerry 9670, which had Visual Voicemail included, to the 9930 which doesn't. I love being able to open the application, see who has called (and I mean literally see since there is a picture included) and left a message versus who has just called and hung up. I can easily pick the messages I want to listen to first instead of skipping through the numerous telemarkters & calls from my mother. 

Contest: We have 5 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 2.5.17 - 5 copies to be won!


id love this for my new bold 9990 once it comes on the 30th of this month :( will it work on my bold9700

I played with youmail a year or so ago and loved it, but switched over to google voice because it was kinda the same. YouMail is actually better though :)

I have single-handedly been YouMail's #1 salesperson as I have turned all my friends (BB or otherwise) onto the the app and they all love it! I'd live to have the Plus version in lieu of my commission...!

I have had the free version for ever and would never use another voicemail. Oh how sweet the premium version must be.

EDITED: DO NOT pick me for the free give away... Give it to someone who needs it... But one question, do I need to have Visual Voice mail package from my service provider in order for this to work?

No, your service provider does not have to have VVM in order for YouMail to work. It is it's own system. You will basically end up forwarding your voicemails to a number provided by YouMail and then re-programming the nuber to dial VM on your phone to that number. Hope that makes sense.

I've been the using the free version of this app for quite some time now. Upgrading to the full version would be awesome especially being able to see my VM in text format, that'll be awesome! Pick Me!

youmail is the best visual voicemail app ever , i have the free version n i would love to have the pro version

Awesome contest. Hope I win... would help me save $7 per month for visual voicemail from the carrier

Wow! This would help make my transition from iPad/iPhone 4 to BlackBerry 9900/Playbook easier! I hope I win!

I love the free version but can't wait to experience the pro version. This is a must have if you're bored with the traditional voicemail your carrier provides.

I had this for a couple of days...but i deleted it after giving it a chance. It won't play the greeting that was works only if the voicemail comes from a landline...however, if the caller used a cell phone and left a message, the msg could not be played on my 9900...i had to check the voicemail in my email using the computer....what's the use of having visual voicemail on the phone if the phone cannot play the msg? youmail did not stay long right after....i'm now back on Tmo regular visual voicemail...not fancy...but it works....

I had a couple of hiccups when I first installed it. The first time my mom tried calling mefrom her 9670 she got a busy signal but I then had her call again and then again. The 2nd and 3rd time she got my pre-selected message for her. My husband has gotten his everytime and so do my children. The app works great for me on my Sprint 9930. Sorry you had issues with it. Did you try contacting their customer supprt for a fix?

I've been using the basic level for over one year now and its a great app! Would love to win so I can use the enhanced set of features!

Thanks CrackBerry!!!


I woud really like YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus for my Bold 9930 - "there's no me without YouMail"

"Say it loud, say it proud"

This is The Q, leaving a comment for the visual voicemail contest.

A friend raves about this app, and I would love to try it.
