PhoneFusion™ Launches Fusion Voicemail Plus™, a Free Downloadable Application That Brings the Convenience of Visual Voicemail to Smartphones

New Service Allows Anyone to Quickly Centralize Multiple Voicemail Boxes and Prioritize Important Messages Right on Their Mobile Device

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - PhoneFusion™, the leading provider of reliable communications solutions to businesses of all sizes, today announced the launch of Fusion Voicemail Plus™. This free, downloadable voicemail application gives any smartphone user with a wireless data and text messaging plan 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. The service also allows users to listen to their voicemails directly from their smartphone. Fusion Voicemail Plus is available to anyone -- whether or not they are an existing PhoneFusion customer -- at This free service also comes as a standard feature in the PhoneFusion One™ solution.

Fusion Voicemail Plus provides a faster, more efficient way to review messages in the order people want, rather than dialing multiple voicemail systems and listening to the messages in chronological order. A feature distinct to Fusion Voicemail Plus, users can view the incoming phone number and see the caller ID name. Other services only display names if they are stored in the users' phone books. With that information, Fusion Voicemail Plus users are able to dial the callers back immediately or send them a text message.

PhoneFusion is showcasing Fusion Voicemail Plus at Booth #938 at Spring VON.x on March 18 and 19, 2008. This event focuses on cutting-edge applications and technologies that are driving the market in next-generation VoIP, wireless, video and data services.

Fusion Voicemail Plus is designed for small business customers looking for better ways to manage and prioritize their voicemail. In today's demanding business environment, small business workers are required to be in several places at once, and their mobile device becomes a primary communications tool. However, access to work, home and cell voicemail is mission critical. A tool like Fusion Voicemail Plus helps small business professionals manage their time far more efficiently.

"We've all been there -- hanging on the phone while dialing several voicemail accounts and listening to three or four unimportant voicemail messages just to get to that one critical message," said Louis Libin, chief executive officer of PhoneFusion. "For small businesses, time is limited and every minute of the day counts. With Fusion Voicemail Plus, we provide a quick and easy way to manage voicemail messages, saving small business customers time and helping them in their quest to do more."

How Fusion Voicemail Plus Works

Fusion Voicemail Plus centralizes multiple voicemail boxes in one place, accessible from the subscriber's mobile device. After signing up at, the subscriber receives an SMS (txt) message with a link that will allow them to easily download the Fusion Voicemail Plus application. The user then changes their voicemail access number from any of their other voicemail systems (e.g., home, wireless carrier, VoIP, office) to a single PhoneFusion One phone number.

All calls that would normally go to the other designated voicemail boxes will come directly to the person's Fusion Voicemail Plus. The service notifies the user through audible, visual and tactile means that a new voicemail is available for listening, listing the voicemail messages right on the screen of their mobile phone. In addition to accessing voicemail directly from their smartphone, users also have the option to access Fusion Voicemail Plus from any web browser or via the traditional phone. Unlike other visual voicemail services, Fusion Voicemail Plus is totally free and has no limitations on the number of messages it sends to users' phones.

Fusion Voicemail Plus is now available on any cell phone network for Windows Mobile 5 and 6. Future releases are scheduled for BlackBerry, Palm, Symbian, and LINUX mobile. A J2ME version is also planned.
