    YouMail Gets Real With A BlackBerry App
    Since its inception, YouMail, a visual voicemail service for mobile phones, has had one big problem. You could view and play your mobile phone's voicemail messages online, or--beginning lat June--by pointing the mobile browser to YouMail.com, but messages weren't stored on the device itself. Starting Wednesday, YouMail has begun to change that with a native YouMail in-box for BlackBerry phones. Visual Voicemail Plus is a free downloadable app that stores your incoming voice messages along with the caller's name, number, and time of call.

    LOL I went to iTunes thinking this was a different podcast than the one that featured LavaGirl, unless iTunes is acting crazy and it is a different podcast.

    Cherri, baby :)

    Your reviews are going 'from strength to strength' as a commercial from my homeland says. How much time do you spend surfing the web to actually find this stuff? And then, how much time does it take you to put it all together on one page?

    Totally KUDOS to you, if that's a real expression, and if not, i've just invented it
    Define irony: A bunch of idiots dancing on a plane to a song that was sung by a band that got killed on a plane. - By a man who is in a movie about those very idiots dancing on the plane he was on.
