The CallWave Mobile Pro ($10/mo. subscription) lets users dial an activation code, enabling the phone to send unanswered calls to CallWave while allowing users to listen to voicemail messages as they are left to screen calls. Subscribers to the Pro service also have access to toll-free telephone support during business hours. CallWave requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and the widget is available with basic service for free as a digital download from Apple's website.
