YouMail Reaches New Heights -- Handling Its 500 Millionth Call

YouMail Handles 1.5 Million Calls Daily

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  YouMail Inc. (www.youmail.com), a leading provider of digital secretary services for managing mobile voicemail, announced that, as of the end of August, the service has now successfully handled half-a-billion calls. 

The YouMail usage metrics have been driven by its well over one million registered users, the popularity of its handset applications, and extensive word-of-mouth promotion courtesy of satisfied customers. YouMail is seeing not only consumer adoption, but broad user adoption within both Fortune 50 companies and small businesses alike. And the YouMail handset applications continue to be popular, with YouMail BlackBerry app's consistent listing as a top "Productivity" download and the YouMail API-powered YouView visual voicemail app's position as a top paid app in the Palm app store.

"We're very excited to see YouMail pass the 500 million calls benchmark," commented CEO Alex Quilici. "This clearly shows significant consumer demand for our offering and demonstrates our ability to scale."

Handling 1.5 million calls daily, YouMail's growth has also been driven through regional wireless and VOIP carriers who have recognized how YouMail vastly improves the functionality and ease of use of their traditional voicemail systems. Carriers such as IMMIX Wireless in Pennsylvania, Cellular One in East Central Illinois, Blue Wireless in New York, iSmart Mobile in Montana, VoicePulse in New Jersey, and Windy City Cellular in Adak, Alaska, have set YouMail as their standard voicemail service or are providing it as a featured option to their customers. 

YouMail is available to post-paid mobile users in the US on all major carriers including AT&T Wireless, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile. YouMail can also be used to unify a user's mobile voicemail with their voice messages from VOIP service providers such as Google Voice, MagicJack, OOMA, and Vonage.
