Default "YouMail" What's the catch?

Seems too good for the price (free). There's gotta be some sort of catch.

If I can find ANY complaint it would be that the "forward" to their voicemail system adds a little delay. I love the custom voicemail greetings so you can send specific numbers to "Sorry, the number you have reached is not working number......." message.

It doesn't work on all networks. If you're roaming on another network your callers may not get to your voicemail if you don't answer. That's the main reason I don't use it anymore.

The catch is also that they want you to want more. I pay $6.99 a month for premium service

I think they are hoping that the free version will be supported by advertising.

I like the 10-15 sec transcription feature. I bought the annual unlimited 10-15 sec transcription subscription for $110.

It has already saved me that much worth of my time not having to listen to calls to figure out the message.
