    Man that is too confusing for me...I guess one reason I am staying with vzw...I dont like hoop jumping.

    So far I have liked it, I havent customized it as much as I would like yet...but all the entities that try to call me that have their number blocked I dont even have to deal with that....they just poof off to voicemail.

    The txt messages crack me up. I got one regarding Cary Grant the other day and another one with some very questionable words that made me wonder if they used some old 900 number software or something lol...but really there is room for improvement but its a good start.

    I love youmail and have been using it for a few years when they first came out. I recently tried the speec recognition and unfortunately, it's pretty inaccurate. Half the time, I would have no idea what the content of the message was. Wish Youmail had Jotter's accuracy. Now that's some speech recognition!

    Dang, I haven't tried the speech recognition yet. Guess I will right now. Now only if Youmail worked with my home phone I would be set.

    I know I have been thinking about that....but then again that ticks away at minutes if you get alot of calls at home.

    I found out yesterday you can send free text messages from the youmail site. Click here to read more. The only problem is it a one way street. You can send but not receive. The recipient gets a message from a strange number they do not know but it says it is from you (first and last name). I do not see a huge benefit but neat none the less.

    crap.... i mean oh my, what could be wrong... i still have an account (logged in so :} and see my voice mails there -which is good- now i am thinking (which is not always a good thing according to cheri) could it have something to do with those push mail thingies i have been trying.

    1. no idea who it was...
    2. you can't go to a pay phone and call yourself to do me a favor... mmmkay, i see :}
