android cell phone app reviews HTC myTouch 3G Black HTC myTouch 3G Merlot HTC myTouch 3G White HTC T-Mobile
To get the service, G1 owners will need to convert their data plan from G1 data to the Android unlimited package. It is $24.95 without messaging and $34.95 with - just like the G1 plans. The new VM comes with the plan, but ask your rep specifically to activate your Visual Voicemail, which can take up to 48 hours (mine took 30 minutes).
If you download and install the app without calling T-Mobile, the program will offer to activate the feature for you. However, at the time of this writing, self-activation is not functioning for G1 owners. (See the last two pictures below.)
Play messages in any order you like, delete them, turn the speaker phone on or off, return the call, or hit the menu and ad a new contact. It's all there, and it's quite friendly. I think I need to publicly compare this program with Google Voice's visual voicemail before too long. To get you closer to the experience, I've pasted some screen shots with descriptions, followed by some T-Mo video of Visual Voicemail in action:
List view. Note the star next to the VVM icon in the list and my notification bar.
That's a message I haven't heard yet.
Message management: delete, speaker, return call, play, and skip boring parts.
You will need to call T-Mobile, even though the app offers to activate the service for you, as seen below.
An update already? Yay!
Yes, but what do you want in return?
