While AT&T iPhone users have been struggling with their own Visual Voicemail woes, T-Mobile has been hard at work to bring Visual Voicemail to its Android smartphone user-base. The first wireless carrier to offer an Android smartphone has released a new Android app that finally makes Visual Voicemail a possibility. The app is now available as part of T-Mobile’s AppPack. Similar to the iPhone, Visual Voicemail on Android allows users to see voicemails in an inbox, complete with time of the call and the caller’s contact info.
The Visual Voicemail Android app is available, free of charge, through the Android Market. But, you’ll have to make a slight change to your T-Mobile Android data plan. Before downloading the app, you need to dial “611” on your T-Mobile G1 and ask the customer service rep to enable Visual Voicemail. Then, simply download the app and allow it to sync with your new Visual Voicemail settings.
Enjoy Visual Voicemail on your Android-powered T-Mobile G1!
