    It seems like a cool program. Thinking of downloading it.

    Installed it but found out I had to create an account...don't like the idea of my voicemails going somewhere else. Why can't the carriers (ie., AT&T) just offer this?

    I am sticking with Grandcentral. It sends me an email and an SMS, which is all I need. It has the added bonus of being "MyFaves" compatibile so it costs nothing to the average T-mobile customer.

    Ok, I got it all working, pretty good too..

    It has a horrible big icon, but it works nicely. You might want to move it so it is visible in your main screen, since it uses the same trick as JiveTalk in which it places a red asterix over the icon to indicate you have a new message. It also puts an entry in your ringer profile where you can specify the ringtone used when you get a voicemail message.

    It works pretty good! I now have an icon that shows me when I get a voicemail (and an appropriate ringtone), and when I open it I can see who called (caller ID), when they called, and play back the message. If I signed up for transcription, the text of the message comes shortly and it is AMAZINGLY accurate. Will play for it for a week (1 week free trial on transcribing) and see how I much I want to pay $9.95 for that feature.

    Are you able to listen to the messages in the application or are you having a problem with that like some of us?

    EDIT: I received another email from SimulSays tech support, and they said about the duration problem:
    "There is a bug that our programmers found that was causing that issue that was making the files unplayable. They worked to fix it and believed that the update we are going to release in another week or two will fix this problem completely if their quick fix didn't already do the trick."
    So they are aware of it, and are working at it. Again - customer service so far has been great!


    And as to that $9.95 - I believe that is per month (for the first 40 messages, and then $.25/ea after that)

    Yep, can listen and read. I had a super LONG voice mail left by an automated system at work, and while it did take it 10 minutes to transcribe it, it all came through... all 2 minutes of message and two screens of text.

    I haven't tried it out in just over a month now, but when I did use it and it created that entry to profiles, Desktop Manager would stop with an error message during Backup when it came to Profiles. I emailed them about it, hopefully they fixed it now, since I was unable to make backups of the BB from this entry.

    at&t does charge for the call forwarding, but it only deducts from your mins and doesn't charge your bill any money. Last I checked, at&t deducts your voicemail calls from your anytime minutes anyway, so I don't see any difference.

    Re: Visual Voicemail Now Available for BlackBerry download

    i dont know why but i dont really trust it. id rather be the only ears that hear my voicemail. am i the only one hesitant to this? i dont think its completely secure. and what if theres operators that have acess to listening to it? and they have to report something if it doesnt sound right. not for me. its a good program for those of you who arent paranoid on privacy. but i am.

    Re: Visual Voicemail Now Available for BlackBerry download

    how do you turn off "speak clearly and slowly" warning right before the beep? It's kind of like an advertisement for SimulScribe and I would just like for ppl to leave me a message and not listen to a commercial.


    So far I like the idea but i wish it could interface with the notification icon to show when you have messages instead of the crazy flashing red light and icon for simulsays with an asterisk

    These companies need to make this software compatible with the 7200 series as well.
    SOME of us cant afford the 8800.
    This would be a great SW to have.
