AT&T BlackBerries get VM

AT&T will introduce an operating system update that will finally bring visual voicemail to the provider's BlackBerry Bold smartphone. While a rumor of this update has been around since January, an official AT&T document reveals the functionality will become available on Tuesday, August 25th. The update, 4.6.0.297, will endow the BlackBerry Bold with free visual voicemail capability.

The feature will allow users to check messages in any order they wish, as well as share voicemail messages with others via e-mail or picture messaging. Users can also save as many as 40 messages in their inbox for 14 days or save them to their device memory or memory cards. New Bolds will ship with the functionality, while existing users will need to download the software and activate it. AT&T warns that setting up the Visual Voicemail on existing handsets will erase existing saved messages and greetings. [via CrackBerry]
