    According to a Twitter post by Palm, it looks like webOS DOES support Visual Voicemail, but it's unclear whether it will be included (or added) to the Pre.

    What I'm taking away from that is that WebOS supports it, but Sprint doesn't.

    That would be stupid considering the Instinct does VV.

    I should amend my previous statement to say "... Sprint hasn't yet".

    The Pre needs VV. I love this feature on my instinct and it sucks I have to give it up but this phone also does so much more that I am okay with it and look forward to it becoming available in the near future...We all hope...

    If I had to choose between Spinvox's voicemail transcription, which is included on the Pre, and having to actually listen to voicemail, I choose the former. I despise voicemail, though, granted, VVM is more palatable standard VM.

    i'll go out on a limb and make a wild prediction - either VVM will be included at launch or they will add it later. anyone want to bet?

    No, the Samsung Instinct for Sprint has Visual Voicemail. I love it!

    I won't bet because I happen to agree with you.

    Yeah- I amended that statement. I mistyped.

    Doesn't Sprint or Palm need to pay a license fee for Visual Voicemail to a company that created it. I know a lot of companies got sued for it a year or so ago. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    I was talking about transcribed voicemail as a superior alternative to regular and Visual Voice Mail. Instead of having to listen to someone ramble on for over a minute, you can read the text version in a few seconds. VVM does save you the trouble of having to listen to messages sequentially, not to mention the voice prompts, but you still have to put in the time to listen to your selected messages.

    Unfortunately SpinVox's voicemail is $9.99 a month (though voice memo transcription is free), and it still requires call forwarding, so there's no inherent advantage over competing services like CallWave, YouMail or PhoneTag.

    I have a google voice account, but I rarely use it. I wonder if I'll be able to use it's voicemail service instead of sprints to have the transcription service.

    The problem is Sprint charges you $.20 per call forward, including no answer/busy call forwarding... it puts a crimp both SpinVox and Google Voice.

    You could use your Google Voice's number as your "one number" and use its voicemail that way. However your fellow Sprint callers would use their plan minutes when calling you at certain times if they are not on a unlimited calling plan.

    You're on the right track. I think that Palm/Sprint will make a deal with Google to provide Google Voice service free/built-in.
