>Top o’the morning to ya!
Late last week testing began of HulloMail in Ireland. We have managed to recruit a band of testers in the Republic who have kindly agreed to be our ‘guinea pigs’ in market. We have given this intrepid group access to the Android and BlackBerry apps with iPhone to follow this week, so they can put the service through it’s paces.
You have probably noticed that we have amended the HulloMail website recently to incorporate Ireland so all the details are there for when we launch the service shortly.
The Hullo Family are getting excited about filming their summer special in Dublin which will be available for launch, so watch this space.
You may ask why Ireland and not another country? Here at HulloMail we get regular requests to expand our service into new territories so that other countries can enjoy the benefits of HulloMail, particularly where operators don’t support visual voicemail on any phones.
The decision was made to launch in Ireland first because we have strong links with the country and the potential user base is considerable.
When the service goes live in the coming weeks it will be available to all Irish BlackBerry, Android and iPhone users regardless of which operator they’re with as all will be supported. Unfortunately users on a pay as you go tariff will still not be able to use the service unless their operator supports unconditional diverts.
We will let you know how testing goes, but all is looking good so far.
>We are really pleased, as people seem to be getting as excited about our service as we are, with this is mind we thought we would put together some of the great comments and reviews we have had about the service over recent months, enjoy!
“I just got done setting up Hullomail and surprisingly I like this app A LOT. Very easy to set up, very good graphics and shows a picture next to whoever left you a voice mail or a missed call and very fast at receiving voice mails unlike VVM from Verizon which sometimes took an Hour to come through!” – mjbesen310, CrackBerry Forums
“Hullomail is really good…even sends you an email with a link to listen to your voicemail as an mp3. Definitely recommend to anyone […]”- luckster28, Vodafone Forums
“The service is called Hullomail and it has been invaluable. It is a free of charge mobile service which enables recordings of voice mails to be emailed to my gmail or mobileme account. One of the best features is the ability to send a Hullo (voice mail) directly back to a person without having to phone them (Great just to reply to a question that needs more explaining than a txt). If you […] want visual voice mail download the app and register for the service.” – Kristian Toms
Some app store reviews:
“Just wanted to say thanks for making a brilliant app – I wasn’t getting any voicemail alerts through Vodafone and unbeknown to me I had 4 voicemail – one of them very important. HulloMail! works just great and I left a post on the Vodafone eForum to advise people how good it is.” – Chris, HulloMail user
“I just used your website steps to install hullomail onto my iphone 3gs. Simple, accurate, quick, easy – free. Well structured and thought out, pretty and it works superbly, quickly, no fuss. Great app and service thank you” – Neil, HulloMail user
“I have a BBTour and was disappointed it did not have visual voicemail…..Until I found this app. Its fabulous! It was a piece of cake to install and set up – I love it. A definite must have.” – BlackBerry user
“Miffed you don’t have visual voicemail on your iPhone? Get this. The email sync feature is great too – you receive an email with the voicemail message attached as a quicktime MP3 and, when you have read it, the corresponding message in the voicemail app is marked as read too. Don’t know what it’s like when roaming although they seem to have made provision for this.” jtorange, iPhone user
“Allows me to manage my voicemails with ease, brillant!” yppirtos, iPhone user
“Brilliant! I went from PhoneFusion to this as this one has push voicemail and displays them in my notification bar. This certainly rivals the iPhone.” Glenn, Android user
why not see if you agree with these reviews and try the service for yourself?

>I saw this tweet last week
twitter.com/ClaxtonLegal – “@SandraSingerEsq I read that Google’s TOS indicates that they own all info, including the voicemail they change into emails/SMS. Not sure”
I thought I would check it out….
Clicked on Terms of Service -> Error Page Not found
hmm I thought that strange – so I googled https://www.google.com/voice/help/terms and brought up the cached page (great feature Google)
