HulloMail is a visual voice mail solution which is available in UK, USA & Ireland. I have been using this from it’s initial days. Can’t praise enough !
If you have a smartphone, you should give HulloMail a try . It’s feature rich compared to the normal network voice mails . And many features are FREE !
In US – Google Voice may be better , but in UK – I couldn’t find an alternative better solution.
Very handy when you travel abroad – There is an option to divert all calls to voice mail and the voice mail can be picked from abroad using Internet via the App or on the computer plus the voice mail will be emailed as an attachment to you .
The app can be installed on iPad & Other Android Tablets as well !
I am not sure whether some networks in UK charges these days to retrieve voice mails. Earlier retrieving voice mail were outside your calling allowance on some networks. HulloMail was a way to get around this issue as well !
Download for Android, BlackBerry and iPhone, it’s free.
HulloMail is activated during the registration process as a conditional divert – meaning your calls are sent to HulloMail, rather than your standard operator. It sounds a bit complicated, but all you have to do is activate the service when the app prompts you, and you’re good to go! From this point, HulloMail will answer your incoming calls if you are not available.
Then you can listen to your messages however you prefer! Use the app, check your email, or give your HulloMail number a call if you still prefer standard voicemail methods. Ultimately [and most importantly], you are in control.
With the FREE app you get these features:
- View, play and manage your voicemails in the app
