Just a Mindless Rant!!
 
Dear. BlackBerry Nation

I just got my 1st BlackBerry the Curve 8530 on the Sprint Network. Before that I had the Samsung Instinct. And one of the greatest things on that phone just like the I-Phone it has Visual Voicemail.

I Have no clue how I ever got along without it. Dare I say it? It is the greatest thing since sliced bread, Pot and Legalized prostitution in Amsterdam. But since BlackBerry's never had it I was not to broken hearted over it. (I'm lying yes I was) But anyway I came to grips that I would never get to pick and choose which Voicemails I wanted to listen to etc...

Then while trying to convince my friend who has T-Mobile to Get a BlackBerry. I was showing him the specs on the BlackBerry Bold. And what do I see listed in the features? You Guessed it "Visual VoiceMail" The Only BlackBerry to have it. Not to sure about the Storm.

And its not something you can download from the App Store it has to be built into the phone.

DAMN YOU SPRINT!!!!!! for not carrying the BOLD!!!!

You do realize that the Bold is a GSM device and Sprint is a CDMA network, right?

There's a forum for that. :smile:

VVM is a service of the carrier in most cases. You can also get YouMail for free.

TBOLTRAM 02-14-2010 05:31 PM

S2 has visual voicemail on Verizon but I think it costs a monthly fee.

So, there IS an app for that. ;)

Yep. I use Youmail for VVM and it works quite nicely.

Google Voice gets it done.

While not pre-installed you can download visual voicemail for your BB.

It's a function of the carrier.

I have SpinVox, I love it. I get my voicemails as text messages. It's way better than listening to my drunk grandmas messages.

No vvm for me :)

Does she share her booze with you?

Noodle22 02-16-2010 01:39 PM

When I moved in with my boyfriend, she gave me this huge jug of wine that was half missing as a house warming gift. So I guess the answer is yes. One time at a dinner though she told me she only brought enough for herself when I asked if I could have some wine, haha.

TBOLTRAM 02-16-2010 06:15 PM

Does she drink good stuff, table wine or rotgut? Need to know what we are dealing with here.

Noodle22 02-16-2010 09:56 PM

All I know is she get's that massive jug for about 30 bucks. I normally buy bottles in the 20 dollar price range. It's definately... strong...

If you can use it as floor polish remover it is most likely rotgut. Only good things is that she won't have worms.

Noodle22 02-17-2010 09:19 AM

Hahaha! My poor grandmother is getting ripped to shreds. At least she is still has her insanity.

+2. And it's a free app/service, and you can use it on almost every Blackberry.
