PhoneFusion Offers Unlimited Voicemail to Text Transcriptions for Just $0.99 Cents per Month

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - IT Expo - PhoneFusion™, an innovative provider of reliable, hosted communications solutions, announced today the immediate availability of unlimited Voicemail to Text transcriptions for just $0.99 cents per month for the popular Fusion Voicemail Plus application for Android, iPhone, Windows Mobile and Blackberry phones. The 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.

"We are excited to offer Voice to Text transcriptions at a fraction of what the nation's largest carriers are charging and offer our users an alternative to Google Voice that does not index, archive, or retain any part of your voicemail messages. We value our users' privacy," said Jonathan Hollander, founder and EVP, PhoneFusion. "We continue to look for ways to enhance our application and it's with the help and feedback of the smartphone community that we are able to do just that. We hope smartphone users enjoy the convenience and usability of our app."

Fusion Voicemail Plus is currently available on any cellular phone network in the United States, on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry devices as well as on smartphones running on Windows Mobile 5 and 6. The transcriptions powered by Charlotte-based Yap, a leader in automated voicemail-to-text services, are fully automated and completely private with quality that rivals human transcription.

"Being able to access voicemail by reading it, rather than listening, is incredibly convenient because there is no longer a need to navigate a voicemail IVR or write down message details," says Igor Jablokov, CEO at Yap. "Furthermore, since the service is fully automated with accuracy levels that rival human transcription, privacy is not a concern."

PhoneFusion continues to encourage feedback from the Visual Voicemail community. Please send comments on the application to
