PhoneFusion Continues to Improve Visual Voicemail Technology; Adds New Features to Popular Fusion Voicemail Plus App for Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile Devices

New Features Include Voice-to-Text Option; Users Can Hear and See Voicemail Messages From Same Interface

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - August 18, 2009) - PhoneFusion™, an innovative provider of reliable, hosted communications solutions, announced today a new set of highly requested features for its popular Fusion Voicemail Plus application. This free, visual voicemail app gives smartphone users the ability to centralize all of their voicemail boxes and see -- right on the screen of their mobile device -- a list of their voicemail messages. Responding to user requests, Fusion Voicemail Plus now provides a voice-to-text option that allows users to hear and read their voicemail messages. Another new feature lets users create special voicemail greetings to play only for certain callers (based on Caller ID) or on specific days or times of the day.

In addition to voice-to-text and scheduled greetings, other features that are now available to Fusion Voicemail Plus users include:

-- Mailbox Storage Alert: the system can send users a message to any email address, alerting them that their online mailbox is nearing capacity.

-- Easy Message Forwarding: easily forward voicemails and faxes to any email address or another Fusion Voicemail Plus mailbox.

-- Syncing of Voicemails: users are able to sync their voicemails from mobile to the Web. If you loose your phone, just install the FVM+ application and click sync. Your messages will automatically appear on the new phone.

-- Android Widgets: Fusion Voicemail Plus widgets are now available for the Android home screen, allowing people to easily see how many messages they have in their mailbox right from their home screen.

"We love that our users are so willing to share feedback and ideas on what will make a better visual voicemail product," said Jonathan Hollander, founder and EVP, PhoneFusion. "We've worked hard to incorporate some of the most highly requested ideas as a way to improve Fusion Voicemail Plus and continue to enhance the mobile experience."

Fusion Voicemail Plus is currently available on any cell phone network in the United States for Android and BlackBerry devices as well as smartphones running on Windows Mobile. The company is currently developing a version for Symbian S60 devices.
