YouMail Now OFFICIALLY Free for Sprint Users

OK, it's been a week or so, but now YouMail is free for Sprint users (like me). Woo-hoo!!!

The conditional call forwarding has been done away with. Here are all the details from YouMail:

It’s official! Sprint conditional call forwarding is now free of charge. Sprint customers can now utilize YouMail without incurring the previous $.20/minute for conditional call forwarding – normal airtime applies. Or in other words – for free.
If you’re new to YouMail, simply sign up for YouMail at Once you have a YouMail account, you can activate YouMail by dialing *289095106169 and pressing ‘Send” from your Sprint phone. This causes your busy and unanswered calls to be forwarded to YouMail instead of your old Sprint voicemail (this is the “conditional call forwarding” part)..

Existing YouMail customers with Sprint conditional call forwarding are not required to take any action at this time as the Sprint changes are automatic.

Sprint customers with a BlackBerry or the new HTC Hero can experience YouMail with our great, FREE phone apps . You can download the YouMail Visual Voicemail app from the Android Market or BlackBerry App World.

Note that unconditional (immediate) call forwarding (set up using *72) still incurs a $.20/min fee – but this doesn’t affect users using conditional call forwarding to replace Sprint voicemail with YouMail.
