PhoneFusion Brings Visual Voicemail to Windows Mobile

Description

Now anyone can sign up for a visual voicemail service on their phone via new software from PhoneFusion. Currently, the visual voicemail service called Fusion Voicemail Plus only works on Windows Mobile 5 and 6, but the developers are working on bringing it to other operating systems, too.

The service will display all your voicemails on your cell phone screen - including voicemails from your home, office, and any other number as well. This is available thanks to PhoneFusion's call routing feature where their service answers calls and then routes them appropriately - either to your home, work, cell, VoIP, fax, or email.

To get started, sign up at www.fusionvoicemailplus.com. You'll get an SMS with a link to download the software. You'll then need to redirect any lines that you want PhoneFusion to answer. After all calls are coming to your PhoneFusion mailbox, then each time a caller leaves a voicemail, an SMS message is forwarded to your mobile phone, a tone is played and information displays on your handset screen. This information includes the date and time of the voicemail as well as the true caller ID name. You can scroll through the list provided and select the voicemails in the order of your choice.

    I just signed up for this free service, download and installed the app on my phone. So far so good. As a Sprint user, I must call Customer Care to call forward/no answer my phone (can you believe that?) so I'm waiting to see how this service holds up before I fully commit. Initial comments:

    1. The UI is not as clean as I would have hoped for.
    2. It does NOT tie into my WM6 contacts, so I don't see any way to display the name of the caller (I only get the phone number).
    3. It does not update the phone's "new voicemail" count, so the system (and other apps like S2U2) don't give an accurate count of my unread voice mails.

    I'm eager to see version 2 of this app. It has the potential to help me shed my iPhone envy.
