AT&T BlackBerries get VM
AT&T made good on yesterday's promise of updating its BlackBerry Bold's operating system that enables visual voicemail. After upgrading to the new operating system, AT&T Bold owners can activate the visual voicemail option themselves by navigating to the AT&T website and logging into their Manage My Account section. As expected, the feature is free to subscribers, and will allow users to check their voicemail in any order they wish and not, as usual, in the order that they receive them.
Up to 40 messages can be saved in the inbox for up to 14 days, with users getting the option of saving messages to the Bold's internal or external memory for as long as they wish. They can also send out the voicemails to friends via e-mail or picture messages. Existing messages will be erased by the set-up process, however. [via BGR]
