youmail_logoYouMail Inc. announced today that Sprint customers will now get their visual voicemail service free of charge. Also available for BlackBerry phones, Android users on the Now Network can start taking advantage of YouMail’s features.

“YouMail has been overwhelmed with requests from Sprint users wanting our service to work with no extra fees,” said Alex Quilici, CEO, YouMail.  “Sprint has done a great service to the wireless community by eliminating their previous 20 cents per minute charge for conditional call forwarding and making it easy for users to set up the conditional call forwarding that services like YouMail require.”

  1. If you have an Android phone, why wouldn't you just get a Google Voice account and download the app? That's what I do. That is really all I currently use my Google Voice account for…free visual voicemail.

  2. GV Visual voicemail is great. Once everyone has your GV phone number. I used YM on T-Mobile and am now using it on VZW as one of my Friends and Family numbers. MUCH better than paying VZW for visual voicemail…

  3. In this world nothing is free! However, it is quite interesting to learn that YouMail Inc. announced today that Sprint customers will now get their visual voicemail service free of charge. Thanks.

  4. Sprint’s visual voice mail is a trainwreck.

    Once installed, it fails to notify you of messages.

    Messages are about 70% accurate.

    MOST of all it takes 30 days to unsubscribe…what does Sprint say…they are sorry.
