I'm looking for an audio notification. The problem is that I may miss the initial audio notification when an new voicemail comes in. And then I won't know if there's voicemail unless I take the phone out of my pocket and check.
My 10-year-old plain-old cell phone used to beep every couple of minutes when I had a text or voice message. I don't know why the Droid doesn't do that.
+1, Youmail also has a "Keep Reminding Me" option.
And with youmail you dont set up a new phone number, its a great visual voicemail and I use the free version.
And if you are in an area of no reception or the phone is turned off you can get a voicemail without a missed call, but with youmail you'll get a text still for the missed cal with caller id info and/or for the voicemail as well. Both will trigger your current reminder system.
Understandable but don't the missed call and the Voicemail somewhat go hand in hand? Can't have a voicemail without a missed call first, right?
I might also suggest you ask the developer of Easy Reminder to add support for voicemails. Most of these devs are pretty damn cool and fast to respond.
Actually, you can have a voicemail without a missed call. Happens to me fairly often. What happens is that I don't have good reception in my office. Someone tries to call me but the call doesn't go through -- so no missed call. Then, they leave a message and I get the voicemail notification.
Thanks for the suggestion about contacting the dev of Easy Reminder. I hadn't thought of that.
ericsbcn - who said anything about creating a new number when using YouMail. It has everything you've asking for - and more. And Free!
Sorry, I was referring to both Google Voice and YouMail, which seem to require you to set up a separate account. I didn't download YouMail, but I looked at the description in the Market. It just seemed like way more than I needed.
You have the answer, yet you choose to ignore it... YouMail is not hard to setup and use... it will give you what you want, it will even notify you if the person does NOT leave a message so you aren't wondering if you're missing a message.
