    Is it possible to delete a vm and not have to hear it later?

    Advertisement



    Hello all.

    This is my second post. I have been on this site a lot lately to figure out my Pearl (on Verizon). I just want to say thanks to all of you out there who make it easier for a noob like me. Anyway, is it possible a voice message and not have to hear it when accessing voicemail? This may be a verizon thing, but sometimes I just want to delete a message and not have to hear it (that's why I deleted it). Does anyone know if this is possible?

    press 7 while on the message and end the call, it should delete the VM perm. i think that is what you are looking for...
    -------
    while on the same call, it will still have the message in the deleted vm, once you hang up it will disappear

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I know how to delete a message a that way. What I am looking for is a way to delete a message from say the messages interface and not have to listen to the message at all. Sometimes I get messages that I don't want to waste my precious pressing buttons or listen to.

    Are you talking about the deleting the voicemail indicator on the Home Screen without calling the voicemail number? If so then I haven't found a way. You have to access the VMail to remove that.

    why bother with verizon, ATT or sprint voicemail... try using youmail.com. I've been successfully using it for over a 1 and a half years. it's much better, and many more options.

    I would have to second the www.youmail.com option.

    It's quite a great site, they just need to allow playing of the voicemails from your BB and then we would be set.

    Just keep in mind it uses your Call Forwarding mins, not sure about other carriers but TMO accounts have 500 mins.

    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, some1 said 2 thmslvs "U knw, I really want 2 set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close engh to get the job done".

    Thank you very much guys. Two questions: does it take a really long time to load the youmail site when you log in on the phone and is there a youmail faq for blackberry users?

    youmail works like just regular voicemail, you can just call it up.

    or play the attachment from the email they send to you.

    They are working on a PDA version of the site, so right now it's not WAP friendly. Take a bit of time to load.

    I did get this from them earlier tonight after asking some questions:
    "We do intend to offer a version of our site that is more optimized for use from a PDA type device. Once this feature is released you will be able to take advantage of YouMail’s integral visual voicemail capabilities from your Blackberry. Thanks!"

    Good news for YouMail users!

    As for a FAQ on Pinstack there isn't one for YouMail. Pretty sure their site has a FAQ though.

    Never tried youmail but I am a fan of simulsays. Simulsays dot com Works just like iphone voicemail. Pick and choose what you want to listen too
