    youmail.com question

    Advertisement



    i was wondering if i could chage the way i get my text...its coming up: "VM from 555-555-5555. call to listen" wut i want to happen is ...i want instead of the number showing, i want their name shiwn...so instead of :VM from 555-555-5555" i want "VM from john" showing....does anyone know if this is possible...

    also....i wanna be able to personalize my VM greeting...i dont want callers to hear: "you have reached ....blahblabhblah" any way i could change that?

    thanx.....if these two things could be changed it would make that feature so much better

    thanx in advance

    As far as text, unless you have an unlimited texting plan why not have them emailed to you in .wav format so you can listen to them on your BB?

    I don't receive any text messages since I turned them off in youmail. Just go to My Settings > Phone Settings and turn off text messages, then go to Email Settings and set attachments to .wav and make sure to add you BB email since it delivers faster unless you want a copy on a PC email addy

    Ive been using Youmail for a long time. Totally satisfied with the service. Unlike you I didn't set it up to receive texts but emails when i get a voicemail. Works like advertised with the emails.

    Use the lost PIN link on the main login page

    Also, best thing about this is not having to call in to get my VM

    Doughdaddy,

    Is the email with the .wav file included, free or is that a premium service? I only use the email to let me know who has left a VM not with a .wav attachment. If its free I might as well add the .wav file to the emails.

    if you have email setup, it sends you an email, you may get email spam aswell

    so what i did was just filed it under spam and still receive one text per one voicemail

    They quote that the email version is the free alternative to text messages about new VM's

    Their agreement when signing states they will not sell or distribute your email addy so I better not get spam and so far haven't

    i noticed also it states the name of the caller unless u send the caller to the voicemail by pressing the red end button, other wise it will state their number along with your name instead of theirs... for me anyways

    Sorry I couldn't resist after the comment last night. I was just in one of those "I need a laugh" moods.

    If he wants to disable the text and save the charges he can just recieve the emails with the VM included, that saves the calling in fee on your minutes also. Personally I hate getting SMS messages since I have email and BBM on the BB
