    Alright so I may have posted all of this already, but I think I might have cleared it so bear with me...

    I have downloaded and installed Simulsays onto my Verizon Pearl, but it says there are no messages; when I have in fact left two test messages. How do I get the app up and running properly? I know that my device is not on the approved list from Simulsays, but someone on this thread seemed to think that it would work anyway.

    Relevant info: My roommate and I have the BB v. IPhone debate regularly, and Visual voicemail is his silver bullet, one that I, until now, am unable to contend with. I have not told him about it, and next time it comes up, I want to be able to blow him out of the water! BB Supremacy will be mine!

    Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Did you go into the SimulSays application settings on your phone and enter the email address and pin # you set up with them when you created your account?

    yes I have entered my email address and pin # on my desktop and it is showing up on the app in my phone. Relevant info that may or may not be important: I have signed up for the free version without transcription and have not entered any of my credit card info.

    any other suggestions?

    So when you log in to the SimulScribe website, your messages do show up there?

    No, none of the messages show up on the website or the app within my BB.

    Ok, if they're not even showing up on the website then the problem isn't with the BlackBerry app. Did you follow the instructions they emailed you when you signed up to switch your phone's voicemail forwarding over to SimulScribe's vm system?

So the only attachment I get is not 5 but 1 .wav file with the voicemail. Oh and I dont get my voicemail in over 5 minutes at most it takes 1 minute. Before you knock the program set it up right.

    I have it setup exactly the same way, except for the MP3 part...I'll change it to wav and see what happens!!

    thanks dude!!

    Are you sure you have your Email Format set to "Text" under Email Settings?

    No!!...I have it set up for HTML view because I have Empower, so text wouldn't be wise either way (thanks though)

    I don't know why I'm getting 4 JPEG's along with the audio (.wav) file..??????

    You have to change the email format to text NOT html. I have empower pro too and it makes no difference. Just change the email format to text and you won't get those 4 pics in the attachment.

    Btw I'm talking about changing the email format on the YouMail website. Not in empower EMV Pro. It has nothing to do with empower EMV pro.

    Well if the image attachments are bugging you, I don't get why it would be a big deal to just switch the YouMail emails to Text. It's not like it will hurt anything...
