    I used Youmail for a long time. I have no problems with it. I switched to Google voice when I recieved my invite, to see how it would be. They both work, but what sealed the deal with Google, for me, was the free transcribed voicemails. That's actually a pay service on Youmail. There's just so many things I can do with GV, it just made sense to me to stay with it, as opposed to having YM for this and GV for that.

    If someone would like to send a Google Voice invite my way, I'd be happy to offer my opinion of the 2.

    I use Verizons Visual Voicemail. I don't like to give to much information and control to any one entity. There is no way I would use YouMail, Google Voice is cool, but I don't use the Visual Voicemail aspect of it.

    I thought about YouMail, except of course it really isn't "free". It's the no charge for call forwarding that makes it kinda "free." But you have to pay for voice to text, which Google gives you for free. Except of course that the transcription is so bad it's basically worthless. Still, I'll wait for Google to upgrade the voice program before I'll pay for it on YouMail.

    I also use Verizon's Visual Voicemail. It works fine. However, there is a small cost for it.

    I guess I'm the first person voting for Youmail.

    I've used both and I still do. The only thing is.. I use GV for Canadian calls and free text messaging.

    I still use YM for vm. The kicker is that Youmail sends you email notifications if you miss a call. Which is a bonus when you're underground in NYC.

    Used both and I prefer GV. I'm forwarding all my calls that I don't answer to GV and the app works great.

    I just got my GV setup to handle my voicemail because Sprint just waived the call forwarding fee. So far, I love it. The transcriptions are kinda crappy at times, but I love everything else. One big bonus is the personalized greetings -- I have a greeting for all my customers, a greeting for my wife, one for my "dudes", and one for my Dad, etc. They are all caught off guard by it. Seems to be a great app -- and it's FREE!

    I just switched over to Google VM having used YouMail for a while now and am enjoying Google VM. The only feature I miss is YouMail's intelligent greetings which put the name of the caller into a generic greeting if it recognizes caller ID. I'm sure Google will come up with it eventually.

    The biggest plus on Google's side is the ability to ring me multiple phones first. Something YouMail doesn't have.

    I havent used Google Voicemail yet, but I like the feature on YouMail that allows you to upload your contacts and they are personally greeted. Does google's do that too ?

    YouMail. I didn't like the thee extra rings the caller heard when forwarding to GV. Also, I like YouMails smart greetings and that they support uploading prerecorded greetings. I would probably use GV if the transcriptions didn't suck so bad, but would still miss the greeting features of YouMail.

    I prefer GV because its all free, it connects to multiple phones, and the GV app isn't a memory hog. I tried YouMail awhile back and just never got into it.

    Ya, GV has personalized greetings similar to YouMail. But YouMail allows you to upload greetings (GV doesn't), and if you don't have a recorded greeting assigned, YouMail will play a greeting based on caller id name. Prerecorded greetings are nice if you want a professional sounding (or funny, etc) greeting.

    I like YouMail because of the greeting options and the intelligent voice greeting that people get. It's great when someone calls you and the voicemail says their name in the greeting. I see no point in switching due to transcription when everyone says the transcription isn't that great anyway. When the transcription gets good then I might look into changing.
