T-Mobile’s Voice Plus Beta Has Started

After nearly a month of waiting,  T-Mobile has started their Voice Plus Beta program for G1 owners.  Emails are being sent out this evening to those of you who signed up to participate in a new service to manage calls and voicemail on your Android phone.

Heads up!  To install the application on your phone, you will need to update the G1’s software, wiping your phone in the process.  T-Mobile does provide a few steps to walk you through the process so you can backup your data.  If you run into any snags, you’re advised to not call Customer Care.  Dialing 611 will not do you a bit of good.  Instead, users are directed to specific channels for feedback and troubleshooting.

Features of Voice Plus Beta:

  • Call Divert: Carve out a little peace and quiet by sending selected numbers straight to voicemail without ringing your phone.
  • Call Defer: Let callers know you’re busy and schedule a convenient time for you to call them back.  Send them a text message that acknowledges their call and that you will respond at a later time.
  • Visual Voicemail: Easily manage your voicemail! View a list of who left a voicemail, with the time of the message and its length.  Choose which to listen to now and which to review later.
  • City ID: Get more information about the calls you receive.  The city and state information of incoming calls is displayed.

      Sure you do, fuck-head, but not everyone has an N1 or the know-how/where-with-all/desire to mod their phone. Do us all a favor and don't be a dick.

        so your mad at him because he bought a nexus one. Sounds like someone hates their minimum wage job. Should’ve paid more attention in school huh ” fuck-head” don’t be mad because you don’t know how to use the internet for things other than porn. The internet is the largest collection of knowledge and you are to lazy to do some research.
