Download the app & it replaces the default PM voicemail.

Set-up is easily completed after install.  I tried 2 other apps & found this one to be the best in every way.

I also don't like it on when sitting on my bedside table at night.  Too tempting to look at it.  And you are right, supposed to be good for the processor.


Good for the processor?  I do suppose that the more you use your device, the shorter of a lifespan it will have, but leaving it on at night isn't going to anything catostrophic to the processor.

@ConfusedGuy-54 

In what manner does it change messages from voice to text? Are you saying it will send you your voicemail messages to your phone as a text message?

Voice to text is an option in the app

I've only used it a few times as that feature is a few cents per text message.  I think that the first couple of messages are free and then you would have to reload a buck or two.  But even if you don't use the option to convert to text, it's still a terrific VM & just works.

Aha...theres the kicker! So you can use fongo for free to check vm to save on outgoing minutes and if converting to texts costs a few cents then thats more expensive than paying $0.01 per minute to check vm if need be by using the $5/500min calling add on.

I have the unltd minutes plan, so no difference there.

It's just a better voicemail.

Re: Voice to text is an option in the app

Ok ... does everyone agree here ... does PM voicemail work or not if the phone is  off ?? 

 

@computergeek541  ... as I understand it ...just good for the processor to have a regular reboot , not that it really needs to be off overnight . I was getting into "glitch" trouble because I would never shut my phone off .

 @barndoor : As long as the conditionals are set, the phone can be off. What do you suppose happens when you're out of range?

With aTelus  based  company ...I didn't think there was such a thing as out of range !  Lol 

 

Makes sense ...as long as the server has the right instruction should be a none issue . 👍

@ConfusedGuy-54 @darlicious  FYI   Fongo converts the voicemail to text and sends you an email of it for free. Been using that feature for a long time now.
