    Had the link on the desktop, but it had to be activated (for free) via my at&t online account manager. Set it all up, LOVE IT. No more calling my voicemail, it downloads the messages in a .amr format and saves them to the phone. Then they are categorized in a "folder" by date/time, similar to the text msg interface. Freakin sweet, always hated having to call my voicemail.

    Just felt like sharing

    I first starting using it my on AT&T 9700 then on my Torch. I recently switched to an unlocked Telus 9780 for use on AT&T and that's the only thing I'm missing. I figure once AT&T releases the 9780, I'll get it and sell the unlocked one so I can have the VVM again.

    Same with me, I started with the Bold 9700 and now the Torch. It has been quite useful, especially when one of my instructors called me drunk and it was hilarious to keep it and let them listen to it the next time we had class

    Same. Started with the 9700 as well. I agree, it is better than calling voicemail.

    I have my vmail forwarded to my Google Voice account which gives the same thing and its free. It's awesome when I'm out of coverage but on WIFI, can still see vmails and sms. The transcriptions are sometimes very accurate and other times totally hilarious in how wrong they are.

    Between that and being able to listen to my work vmails from my BB email, I hardly remember how to access my vmail directly.

    Visual VM is free but (with AT&T) you cannot use VM AND regular VM.

    Yes, its free, but you have to have it provisioned for your line. I believe you can either call AT&T and have them do it, or do yourself if you have a "my wireless" account.

    I too am a noob and not quite sure I get VVM - is it like a regular email type app? Are you still able to hear the voice messages? Like is it just an easy way to too visually manage your voice mail? sorry for the massive questions I'm just curious.

    You get a visual notice of who the message was left by and how long it is. You can then listen to the message on your phone without having to call your voicemail and press buttons. Delete, replay, and save are all options on the screen.

    Love my VVM, have had it since the first gen Iphone, missed it with my curve and now I'm happy to have it again, although it works way better on the torch then it did on the iphone.

    The easiest way to describe it is that it comes in like a regular email or text message. Then it plays like a music file, with the forward, pause, etc.
    I love it and I really miss it on my work 9650.

    In short, you can do it either way. Call AT&T or over the internet.

    It is a very nice feature which I have had since I owned my 9700.

    Didn't At&t just come out with a new feature where you can READ your voice mails? I saw the commercial, I think yesterday, and it was a guy in a board room meeting and the voice over says "When you can listen to your voice mail" then the guy picks up his device and starts to read his voice mail.
