How well does it work? I hate to sit and listen to voice mail. And then try and write it all down.

i get Voicemail Messages header but it says *No Messages* even though I have voicemail sitting in the inbox...

how exactly does it work? do you need a third party app as stated in the FAQs?

on 7100g 4.1

I do believe it only works with certain companys... like Nextel. (Which is why the poster said the I version specificly)... So if your trying it on a non "I" or unlocked on another carrier; it won't work

The BlackBerry itself doesn't really have the ability to call up your voicemail, know what numbers to push when, listen to the message, and then convert it to text. - So it has to be implimented on your carrier side.

I checked page 24 - here is what it says - To view voice mail message, in the message list press ATL+7
Not sure what else you have installed. I am also on Nextel and cannot make this work.

I did notice when I do what it says the Header at the top says "Searching" from the standard "NEXTEL" and then displays "Voice Mail Messages". With 1 VM it returns " *No Messages". It is doing something, but WHAT?

I am confused????? Can YOU do this or NOT? In your original post you say "How do I do it you ask well here is your answer" - This tells me you HAVE in fact done this. But your quote above is now asking us to let YOU know what the further steps are????

Please elaborate so I can stop wasting my time.
