YouMail Inc., (www.youmail.com), the premier mobile consumer voicemail service, today announced that Sprint customers are now able to easily get YouMail on their mobile phones, with no extra charges. Sprint users can now access YouMail’s visual voicemail application on their BlackBerry® smartphones and Android phones, and take advantage of YouMail’s award winning features that unlock voicemail from their wireless phone and carrier.
"YouMail has been overwhelmed with requests from Sprint users wanting our service to work with no extra fees," said Alex Quilici, CEO, YouMail. "Sprint has done a great service to the wireless community by eliminating their previous 20 cents per minute charge for conditional call forwarding and making it easy for users to set up the conditional call forwarding that services like YouMail require."
YouMail’s time-saving visual voicemail application provides BlackBerry smartphone and Android users on the Sprint network with access to a voicemail inbox right on their mobile phone. Useful features include the ability for consumers to do the following:
-- Quickly and easily scroll through incoming voicemail messages to see relevant caller information including caller name, time of call, and length of message -- Play voicemails by simply clicking on them -- Unlock voicemail to easily share and forward voicemails as an email or post to a blog -- Delete, archive or save voicemails, forever
Sprint users can also access YouMail’s premium transcription services, which enable users to read their voicemails directly from the new application. The transcription feature lets users have anytime access to voicemail, even in situations where playing or listening to a voicemail is not an option, such as when in a meeting. Further, Sprint users have access to additional YouMail features including, access to their voicemail online when they’re near a desktop computer, personalized greetings for every caller, the YouMail greetings community, and community-based or personalized voicemail filtering.
