    Hi all!

    Well, finally got my tour and it's FINALLY allowing calls, etc. (I was porting from a pre-paid to a post-paid...took a while).

    Question about VVM: I loved that feature in iPhone and I see that with Verizon it costs an extra $2.99.

    It said it comes with some other features... my question for you all VVMers... do you find it's worth the $2.99?

    I don't mind paying that, but just wanted to hear some input from all of you who enjoy VVM.

    Thanks very much for your time in reading and responding!

    I think it is.
    It cuts down the time it takes to go through voicemails tremendously.
    Also, a lot of times, I want to just hear a specific voicemail from someone; in the past that would usually mean sitting through 2-3 other voicemail's that I really don't care about just to listen the one I wanted.

    Thank you all for replying.

    Question: What is Youmail? I'm guessing it's an app of some sorts?

    You Mail is an app you can download from the Blackberry App Store, and although I have it on my Curve, I would rather have the VVM offered by VZ however it is not available on that device.

    I just think the VVM is a bit smoother and looks cooler (shrugs shoulders).

    I like VVM personally, Its nice that you don't have to use minutes to check your voice mail and such.

    I am shying away from the Google Voice, for the the fact that Google data mines enough of my life, I don't need them grep'n my voice mail as well.

    Hey is there a way I can configure Google Voice to be my default message taking system at all times? What is the *004* thing?

    When I got the storm , I opted for the VVM .. I have to say I do like it.. when I Get bombarded with vm's I dont have to plow listening to all of them.. I also like that you can create custom voice mail greeting messages to selected recipients (You have to play around in the voicemail menus to find that out).. I love playing pranks on people who reguarly call me.. I will make a custom vm greeting "hello.. uhh hellooo... yoo hoo.. anyone there..hello?.." .. gets them every time! hah.. oh, and your vm mailbox grows allowing you to keep it for a longer period of time, too... it's worth the 3 bux, for me.

    VVM is well worth the $2.99 a month. If people can justify paying each month for Ringback Tones then I can justify VVM. I have YouMail on my 8330 since VVM was never offered on the Curve.It does a good job but I would use Verizon's version if it ever became available.

    Thank you all... I have to say I'm intrigued by Google Voice... but wondering if there is any word when it will be available? I did request an invite so I guess it's a waiting game.
