    good evening folks....

    ok... so the visual voicemail thru verizon stinks.

    i don't have an invite to google voice. :-( :-( :-(

    what's my next best thing when it comes to a visual voicemail app on my droid?

    THANKS!!!!

    one i really like and constantly use is fusion voicemail plus it lets you view who its from an listen to it right from the app on the free plan it also let you receive full color faxes to your phone in pdf format and for paid plan it has speech to sms recognition so you can check VM silently gimme a sec and i'll post a link to a QR code

    I agree. The visual VM from Verizon is awful. I'll get some missed calls and then 6-8 hours later it notifies me of a voicemail.

    Google VM,

    works well, the speech to txt translations are you usually fairly far off but often it is enough to get the gist of what the person is trying to say. I use Google voice to screen most of my calls and I have to tell ya, its been awesome.

    I just took a quick look at youmail and it looks like a fairly nice service.... I still have some concerns with regard to who has access to my info call records etc, but I am sure I will find the answers I am looking for while perusing there site

    I agree.

    What's really cool about YouMail is that when someone calls to your cell phone, the outgoing message addresses them by first name... "Hi John, Peter can't talk your call right now...."

    My friends are constantly blown away by that.

    Also, your phone DOES let you know that you missed a call, so I don't understand how someone can miss a call from YouMail, and not get it for hours.

    At worst, you'll see in the notification bar that you missed a call, you tap on YouMail, and if it hasn't downloaded a message from that person, you can maually have YouMail check the server and download any new messages.

    I have used Fusion and Youmail and i think Youmail is not only more intuitive but I like the way it looks better.
