If you haven't noticed, AT&T has been rather busy lately. Amongst the significant updates to the company's myWireless Mobile and Navigator apps yesterday, came two new iOS apps for AT&T landline customers. If you're an AT&T customer who has opted to enroll in the company's Unified Messaging service, including U-Verse customers, you can now access your voicemail right from your iPhone.
AT&T Unified Messaging (UM) is a service that allows you to check and retrieve all your email, landline voicemail, wireless from AT&T® voicemail and fax messages through a personal computer or touchtone telephone. With text-to-speech technology, you can have the contents of an email message and/or your fax header information read to you. Plus, you can save faxes for viewing on a personal computer, or forward a fax to a fax machine for printing. Also, voice messages can be played through a personal computer.Both apps are fairly basic and won't provide all of the features of the web browser interface, but additional accessibility, especially for free, isn't really something we can complain about. If you're a business customer and want to use this for work, be sure to contact your IT department or supervisor to make certain you have the proper permissions on your voice mailbox. AT&T Voicemail Viewer for residential and AT&T Voicemail Viewer for business are available as free downloads in the App Store now.
