Change Smart Phone, IOS or Android Visual Voicemail to YouMail
If you are like me and never delete email, txt messages or anything else then chances are you like to save all your mobile phone voicemail messages too. This is a problem because mobile phone carriers are not known to hand out unlimited storage for voicemail messages. To solve this I tried using a service called YouMail which is a third-party voicemail service for mobile phones. It is a smart phone app for both IOS and Android giving users the ability to configure voicemail to email, playing custom voicemail greetings, caller id name lookup and even transcribe messages for a fee.
I have used YouMail for a couple of months and don’t know how I lived without it. The app interface is very easy to use just like visual voicemail but has the added benefit of being accessible through a website for computers. The best feature for me is the ability to forward voicemail messages right from my email account. Many times a company will call my number looking for someone else so from my email account or YouMail account I can send that message along to the correct person.
Also by having the message sent to my email account I now have a copy of that message forever granted I don’t run out of space in my gmail account. Now this is not something new Google Voice has provided these same services. Being a long time Google Voice user I believe YouMail is better in terms of providing better voicemail services since Google Voice has a lot more functionality than just voicemail.
I urge anyone looking for an alternate voicemail for their default smart phone visual voicemail try the free version of YouMail.
