    More visual voicemail on your blackberry

    Advertisement



    Visual voicemail tycoons, SimulSays, has opened up SimulSays Beta for free download on your BlackBerry 8800, BlackBerry Pearl, BlackBerry 8300 and Windows Mobile handhelds. While this software is helpful for integrating voicemail with other BlackBerry services (e-mail, SMS and phone), the real product is in SimulScribe, which transcribes voicemail into text, opening up a whole slew of new functions. It’s a good product model they’ve got going here - try this for free, and if it’s doing good things for you, we’ve got a premium service available too.

    iPhone Visual Voicemail Now Available on Curve

    Has anyone downloaded and used this free application?
    Seems very useful (and cool) but I'm curious on users experience before I take the plunge
    FYI- I was unable to include links so I replaced "." with "*" in the web addresses

    iPhone Visual Voicemail Now Available on BlackBerry
    (www*earthtimes*org/articles/show/news_press_release,129571*shtml)
    SimulScribe, the U.S. leader in voicemail-to-text services, announced today the launch of SimulSays Beta, a free, downloadable visual voicemail application for the BlackBerry 8800 series, BlackBerry Pearl, BlackBerry Curve and Windows Mobile devices. With SimulSays Beta users can scroll, click and listen to voicemail messages on their phone's display; saving time and money. Users can instantly select any voice message at random to play back with a simple click on the handset.

    When SimulSays Beta is combined with SimulScribe's award wining voicemail-to-text service, users can also read their voicemail messages in the application. SimulSays Beta integrates with the mobile phone's contact book, allowing users to reply to the known caller's message by phone, text message or e-mail. SimulSays Beta is currently available at www*simulsays*com or at mobile.SimulSays.com from a handset.

    "I have been testing SimulSays Beta for a few weeks now and find it indispensable," said Josh Rubin of coolhunting.com. "SimulSays Beta beat Apple's iPhone to visual voicemail and took it a step further, you can read your voicemail if you combine it with SimulScribe's voicemail-to-text service."

    Once downloaded, the SimulSays Beta application is launched directly from the BlackBerry's main menu. SimulSays Beta requires very little power and always notifies users of new voicemail messages, even when the application is closed. SimulScribe will be rolling out SimulSays on additional mobile platforms in the coming months.

    "We strive to deliver voicemail in better, easier and more useful ways," said James Siminoff, founder and CEO of SimulScribe. "SimulSays Beta was created to give our customers better control of their voicemail, saving them time and money. SimulSays Beta is ideal for people looking to add visual voicemail functionality to their existing mobile phones without having to purchase an Apple iPhone."

    LOL, not everyone that calls me just says "hey it's so and so, call me back". it's not so unheard of for people to talk for more than 1 minute on a vm. atleast in my experience.

    Be very careful with this software. I used it for a month on AT&T and now I am being charged for overages because anytime someone called me and it forwarded to the SimulScribe VM I got charged minutes and I also got charged for calling to pickup my voicemails.

    Duh, of course it charged you... You called a number other than one provided by the character, it might be a voicemail service... but it's not provided by your carrier. Your provider doesn't know the difference between the SimuSays number and your Aunt Sally.

    All, I am not complaining about my overage. (That was my mistake) I am just trying to help someone else out that might not know.
