Fusion Voicemail Plus – Free Visual Voicemail Solution

I got an email that Fusion Voicemail Plus is launching today. This service is very similar to YouMail that we told you about before. It provides you free voicemail services for your cellphone by forwarding your calls to their number. The service is free which is a plus and it even has a downloadable BlackBerry application to easily receive and retrieve your voicemails. You can also play them off their mobile website. The nice twist on this is that it gets the actual caller ID from the caller if the number is not in your address book.

I have copied their press release after the jump because their website (www.fvmplus.com) is a bit flash heavy and hard to navigate. The press release has all the facts summed up perfectly. The Fusion Voicemail service seems to be a follow up to their commercial Phone Fusion One PBX service for businesses.

PhoneFusion™ Unveils Beta Version of Fusion Voicemail Plus™ for BlackBerry®; Free, Downloadable Application Gives BlackBerry Users the Convenience of Visual Voicemail

Visual Voicemail Application Lets Users Centralize Multiple Voicemail Boxes and Prioritize Important Messages Right on their Mobile Device

Ft. Lauderdale, FLA – June 24, 2008 – PhoneFusion™, the leading provider of reliable communications solutions to businesses of all sizes, today released the new beta version of Fusion Voicemail Plus™ for BlackBerry® smartphones. This free visual voicemail application is now available for any BlackBerry device, including the popular BlackBerry Pearl and BlackBerry Curve, on any U.S. wireless carrier. This free, downloadable voicemail application gives BlackBerry users the ability to centralize all of their voicemail boxes and see – right on the screen of their mobile device – a list of their voicemail messages. The service also allows users to listen to their voicemails directly from their BlackBerry. BlackBerry users – whether or not they are an existing PhoneFusion customer – can access the beta version of Fusion Voicemail Plus at www.fvmplus.com. This free service also comes as a standard feature in the PhoneFusion One™ solution.

The beta version of Fusion Voicemail Plus gives the BlackBerry community iPhone™-like visual voicemail functionality for their device. It provides a faster, more efficient way to review messages in the order people want, rather than dialing multiple voicemail systems and listening to the messages in chronological order. A feature distinct to Fusion Voicemail Plus, users can view the incoming phone number and see the caller ID name. Other services only display names if they are stored in users’ phone books. With that information, Fusion Voicemail Plus users are able to dial the callers back immediately or send them a text message.

Fusion Voicemail Plus is designed for small business customers looking for better ways to manage and prioritize their voicemail. In today’s demanding business environment, small business workers are required to be in several places at once, and their mobile device becomes a primary communications tool. However, access to work, home and cell voicemail is mission critical. A tool like Fusion Voicemail Plus helps small business professionals manage their time far more efficiently.

“Fusion Voicemail Plus gives BlackBerry users another powerful way to stay on top of their business communications,” said Louis Libin, chief executive officer of PhoneFusion. “For small businesses, time is limited and every minute of the day counts. With Fusion Voicemail Plus, BlackBerry users have a quick and easy way to manage voicemail messages, saving them time and helping them in their quest to do more.”

How Fusion Voicemail Plus Works
Fusion Voicemail Plus centralizes multiple voicemail boxes in one place, accessible from the subscriber’s mobile device. After signing up at www.fvmplus.com, the subscriber receives a message on their device with a link that will allow them to easily download the Fusion Voicemail Plus application. The user then changes their voicemail access number from any of their other voicemail systems (e.g., home, wireless carrier, VoIP, office) to a single PhoneFusion One phone number.

All calls that would normally go to the other designated voicemail boxes will come directly to the person’s Fusion Voicemail Plus. The service notifies the user through audible, visual and tactile means that a new voicemail is available for listening, listing the voicemail messages right on the screen of their mobile phone. In addition to accessing voicemail directly from their smartphone, users also have the option to access Fusion Voicemail Plus from any web browser or via the traditional phone. Unlike other visual voicemail services, Fusion Voicemail Plus is totally free and has no limitations on the number of messages it sends to users phones.

Fusion Voicemail Plus is already available on any cell phone network for Windows Mobile 5 and 6. Future releases are scheduled for Palm, Symbian, Android and LINUX mobile. A J2ME version is also planned.

  1. OK I went too the Site gave them My E-Mail addy + MY Cellnumber AND OS for Blackberry and it came up NOT COMPATABLE for my Curve HELP!!!!

  2. Thank you for your interest in Fusion Voicemail Plus from PhoneFusion. We see that you have tried to download our application to your mobile phone, however, the phone you are currently using does not support Fusion Voicemail Plus.

    Fusion Voicemail Plus is currently available on phones with Windows Mobile 5 and 6. If you believe your phone has Windows Mobile 5 or 6, please try to download our application again. If not, speak to your wireless service provider to determine if an upgrade in appropriate software for your mobile device is necessary.

    We expect other software versions available for other phones soon. We have added your information to a list and will email you as soon as it is available.

  3. What”s the point of this article if it’s not really available for the blackberry? The link actually verifies this. This article should be removed because it’s going to piss a lot of people off.

  4. Hey guys I just tried out the sign up process and it works like a charm. You may want to check it again.
    While i agree that I hate their flashy website it does seem to work. Personally I would recommend YouMail for now since they have a longer track record

  5. also tried registering and whe I got to the email it required me enter a blackberry.net email address. I am on a BES not BIS so this makes confirming my account completely imposssible.

    THe company needs ot shape up or they are going to completely lienate the Blackberry community.

  6. Yeah it seems to be a half baked solution. But we try not to discriminate about mentioning new free services. Cant promise that they will always deliver. Sadly most of them do not but I am the kind of guy who has to try everything… :)

  7. Where are the instructions on how to use this service? .. There web site is a bit lacking on how to setup forwarding on RIM devices ..

  8. I downloaded it about 4 days and have been using it without any problems on my Curve 8300. I had been using YouMail and I actually think I like this better, with ONE exception. So far I haven’t found a way to leave a personalized voicemail for callers. Some of my friends have been hanging up, thinking they had the wrong number because the message is just a generic corporate sounding VM. I want to be able to record my own message!

  9. Well So Far So good. I love this App. Pretty Cool.

  10. There are several different ways to set up greetings.

    The best way to get started is to go to the “Greetings” tab after logging into youmail.com, and choose the default greeting shortcut. That walks you through recording a default greeting for everyone (on phone or PC) or choose the “record a greeting” and enter a phone number and record the greeting. You can also record personal greetings by hitting 88 on the phone after playing a voicemail.
