    YouMail vs. GrandCentral for Voicemail Manager

    Advertisement



    I know this has been talked about quite a bit and I've read a ton of threads on it but which honestly is more reliable? I really want visual voicemail like the iPhone has but since that clearly isn't an option for BB's I am trying to decide which is better? I have been using YouMail and it's been working great but lately I've been thinking about trying GrandCentral only because it's run by Google. And I usually always have great experience with Google products.

    Thanks!

    I do not have any experience with YouMail but GrandCentral works great and has been 100% reliable for me.

    Is anyone already signed up with GrandCentral? They are still requiring invites right now.

    I have both, but I use youmail. Grandcentral is great, but the only reason I haven't really used it is cause my area code (Hawaii) is not supported. So I have a Vegas number (cha-ching).

    Youmail works great, but the transcriptions still needs a lot of work.

    Been thinking about simulscribe, paid service, since they have an actual app you can dl to the bb for access.

    I have GC and just signed up for YouMail. So far, I really love YM as it is specifically for getting VM.

    I freelance so I'm often running around working in different offices so I use my GC# and have it forward to where ever I'm at. This way, I never really miss calls and I feel like a grown up business person with an office #. =)

    Do either of these offer visual voicemail? It seems to me all these do is give you voicemail you have to check on the web. Is that more conveinent?

    I'd like to try out Grand Central. I had youmail and loved it, but Sprint charges for fowarded calls, so I can't use YouMail anymore.
    Anyone have an invite then can send me?

    Is there any other way to join grand central? Because I don't think invites are given out anymore. If so, would like an invite too!

    ive been using simulsays for free for months and its the best voicemail service ive ever had. i dont think you can get it for free anymore though. they changed their name or something and you have to pay now.

    I too would appreciate an invite to Grand Central, if the referral program for their beta is still alive.

    You can check youmail voice mails the same way you would check your standard voicemail. Checking it on the web is an added option.

    i use youmail, and it is very easy to manage and maintain from my bb with listening to voicemail from my email or logging into their website, and the transcriber isn't bad
