Good news, everyone! Visual voicemail on BlackBerry, a feature heretofore unseen north of the border, is now available to Bell Mobility customers. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, it allows you to cruise through your voicemail messages in a list, complete with dates and caller IDs, and listen to them on-demand, rather than having to chew through a call-in service with dialtone commands. AT&T has been offering VVM on the Bold 9000 since the summer, but Bell’s rollout will span a considerably wider range of devices: the Bold 9700, Tour 9630, Curve 8330, Pearl 8130, World Edition 8830, and whatever else they release in the future.
The catch? Bell is dinging you $8/month for the privilege. Man, for that much, you might as well get SpinVox or PhoneTag and get the added bonus of transcription, especially considering AT&T is giving it out for free. Still, if you’re interested, go to bell.ca/visualvoicemail for more info.
