YouMail has made a free, web-based visual voicemail product available to users of smartphones. Once you create a YouMail account, users will be able to access voicemail via email, on the web, or over the phone. The service will also provide transcripts of voicemails via email or text message. The service will work on most smartphones, including BlackBerries, Palm devices, Windows Mobile devices, and Nokia S60 devices.

I just set this up on my blackberry, and it is amazing! I don't think I'll be checking voicemail the old way again! Here are my thoughts so far:

Pros: easy, web-based visual voicemail, easy to set up, can access from web on my pearl or computer.

Cons: Can't upload pictures for my contacts (or I haven't figured out how yet), doesn't sync contacts with outlook or blackberry's phonebook, sound quality could be better.

All in all, this ranks up there with Opera Mini for favorite free apps.

Just tried it on8830

I just tried the service on bb8830 and its actuallt pretty cool it'll send a text lettin you know who called by number and then show you the length of the message I thibk I may keep the service
i just set it up to use my Message Waiting Indicator, but to also send me a text with a transcript of the message. works pretty well so far.

Callwave has done this for a while now. I use it and it's great for my non-smart phone. When someone calls I get a text summary of their vm, and caller id info, plus an email transcript of the entire call.

It will be good to have more options in this arena, though I wish the carriers would start offering these services in house...
