I have been using a service from Callwave for a few weeks now.
It provides a replacement voicemail system for my mobile cell phone with a range of really useful services.
It has a Windows Vista Sidebar gadget that hooks up to your voicemail and lets you listen right from your desktop.
Plus, it has a voice to text feature which sends an email with the gist of the message, so that you can see any keywords and decide if you want to listen to it.
I really like it - it's like having a personal assistant screening all your calls.
Callwave has an excellent service, the only thing that set me on to <a href="http://www.youmail.com">Youmail</a> was the greater degree of personalization. Both excellent services though.
awesome idea...but...aarrggff...ggrrrr...not available in Australia!!!
hopefully they'll extend their services soon to us downunder :(
I have been using YouMail and love it. I can play the messages online and they also deliver each message to my email.
