Default App to get notification when you have voicemail?

I'm using the app Easy Reminder to get constant notifications when I have a missed call or a text message. But it doesn't work on voicemails. Anyone know of something that will work on all three?

I can't understand why this isn't base functionality in Android. Even my plain old basic cell phone from 10 years ago did this.

I get notifications and the led blinks constantly, I need to figure out how to turn my v-mail notifications off. What kind of notification are you looking for?

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.

Been using them for a couple years now... since my BB Curve... allows you to set different greetings for different callers too.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I don't really want to set up a new phone number / voicemail system. I just want a beep or something to let me know I have a voicemail waiting.

Easy Reminder will give me beeps every 5 minutes when I have a missed call or text message, but it doesn't work for voicemails. Just need something that will work for all three.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks. I tried out Missed Call and it does have a lot more capability than Easy Reminder, but it doesn't seem to handle voicemail notifications.

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.
