CallWave Visual Voicemail

Joining the Visual Voicemail trend triggered by the iPhone, CallWave on Thursday announced a free Visual Voicemail service for checking cellphone voicemail. When at a computer, subscribers can receive voice mail messages through e-mail that separate the user's individual voice messages into individual sound samples, letting the phone owner check messages in any order, saving them or responding through calls and text messages that are relayed through the phone. The notifications are also sent to the directly to the cellphone itself through SMS text messages; while the phone must use a traditional voicemail system to check messages, it provides advance information about callers to save time, CallWave says.

The company's Visual Voicemail is independent of any individual phone and works with most major carriers as well as any Mac or Windows PC. Basic use of the service is free, according to the company. A premium service with call screening and transfers is also available $10 per month.
