    Pay extra for visual voicemail? Uh, no

    Is there an alternative app for checking voicemail? No way in hell I'm giving Verizon extra money for what ought to be a free feature. Cripes, they're STILL trying to play old-school phone company nickel-and-diming games with customers?

    Now, I don't want a 'free' feature if it means having to use a crappy network like AT&T. Bells and whistles ain't diddly when the phone can't do it's job for handling calls.

    Google Voice = Visual Voicemail

    Same thing, but free.

    Let's not forget that you can send and receive texts for free with google voice too.

    I agree that it should be free but, at the same time, 75 a week doesn't make or break me either...I lose more than that in my laundry! Haha!

    I have a GV number but don't utilize the VM option. I use YouMail from the market and love everything you can do with it.


    While you're checking it out and seeing how it works, imagine what would happen if you changed the first name of that certain individual in your contacts to, say, butthead and that person called.

    You'll have to check out the app or better yet, check it out online at Visual Voicemail For Your Phone | YouMail.
