Earlier this month, we announced that our flagship application, YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus, had handled its one billionth call.

That means that at least one billion times, someone let a call roll to voicemail and counted on YouMail to answer it for them.

Pretty cool, especially given pronouncements that voicemail is dead – like this one.

Maybe the real issue is that voicemail simply sucked before services like YouMail came along.
