YouMail and Red Pocket Mobile Team Up to Bring Cloud-Based Visual
Voicemail to Contract-Free Wireless Service
Top Third-Party Visual Voicemail App for Android and iPhone Comes to
Leading Contract-Free Service Provider
IRVINE, CA and THOUSAND OAKS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 --
YouMail, the popular provider of personalized, cloud-based
telecommunication services, and Red Pocket Mobile, a leader in
nationwide contract-free wireless, today announced that YouMail is
now available for free to all Red Pocket Mobile customers. Anyone
with a compatible GSM phone, such as those used on the AT&T and
T-Mobile networks, may now keep or get YouMail when switching to one
of the many high-value, contract-free plans offered by Red Pocket
"Pre-paid mobile plans are becoming an increasingly popular choice
for smart phone users who don't want to be financially locked into a
handset that they might not want in two years," said Alex Quilici,
YouMail's CEO. "It also follows that these types of users don't want
to have their voice messages and visual voicemail locked into these
devices and inaccessible when they switch to a new phone. Now these
users can keep their voice messages forever and take them wherever
they go, even as they purchase new devices or plans."
Demand for YouMail service on pre-paid phones has been significant
but largely unavailable to date, with the company estimating that at
least 500,000 pre-paid wireless customers have attempted to add the
service without success, as most pre-paid wireless plans do not
support the conditional call forwarding needed for services like
"Red Pocket Mobile's partnership with YouMail makes for a winning
combination for all freedom-loving wireless users across the
country," said Red Pocket Mobile President Joshua Gordon. "YouMail's
nearly four million registered users will gain tremendous value if
they choose to switch to any of Red Pocket Mobile's Unlimited or
PayGo contract-free calling options. In addition, many existing Red
Pocket Mobile customers already want visual voicemail. Thanks to our
partnership with YouMail, Red Pocket will now be able to provide
these customers with the very best option, free of charge."
YouMail has also expanded its core features in the past year to
include social caller ID, real-time "this line is out of service"
call blocking and ditching, and in-network numberless voice messaging
to other YouMail users. All YouMail features are available to Red
Pocket Mobile customers when they sign up for YouMail.
"Red Pocket Mobile holds a strong position in the contract-free
wireless space. We'll continue to keep pushing out new features that
our users are demanding and doing so to new markets where our service
makes the most sense," added Quilici.
YouMail can be downloaded free of charge by smartphone owners on
major U.S. wireless carriers. YouMail currently supports iPhone and
Android devices, as well as third-party applications developed for
other mobile operating systems, such as Windows Phone 8, Windows
Phone 7, Windows Phone 6.5 and WebOS.
Red Pocket Mobile SIM cards and service can be purchased at thousands
of retailers across the country and directly from GoRedPocket.com.
