I recently switched from AT & T to Sprint to get the 9850. I specifically asked the rep if the 9850 had visual voice mail capability, they assured me it did and it was preloaded.
Well, guess what. It is not and you will have to you youmail if you want this service. This was confirmed by the store rep when I called them 2 days after purchasing.
This may be a deal breaker for me. I switched to Sprint to try them out for 30 days since there would be no financial loss by doing so. I am already seeing that I get very poor reception at my home (which is also my office), but so far on the road it has been good.
I read some bad reviews about youmail so was reluctant to download, but may give it a try.
My other option is to go back to AT & T and wait for them to release the phone. I do really like the phone however.
Have tried it. I have also tried a newer version I extracted from .353. I can get both to load with no errors. But neither one will deliver my voicemails. I'm thinking its something with not getting the provisions from sprint.

Tried it. Works. I found that I sometimes didn't receive calls at all. It seemed to take most of the pre-set ring length to route through the service to the phone, meaning I had about 5-10 seconds to answer the phone before voicemail. I've hand the same problem for every alternative voice mail system I have tried - except recently for Hullomail. That one works right.
