YouMail and Red Pocket Mobile Team Up to Bring Cloud-Based Visual Voicemail to Contract-Free Wireless Service

Top Third-Party Visual Voicemail App for Android and iPhone Comes to Leading Contract-Free Service Provider

IRVINE, CA and THOUSAND OAKS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 -- YouMail, the popular provider of personalized, cloud-based telecommunication services, and Red Pocket Mobile, a leader in nationwide contract-free wireless, today announced that YouMail is now available for free to all Red Pocket Mobile customers. Anyone with a compatible GSM phone, such as those used on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks, may now keep or get YouMail when switching to one of the many high-value, contract-free plans offered by Red Pocket Mobile.

"Pre-paid mobile plans are becoming an increasingly popular choice for smart phone users who don't want to be financially locked into a handset that they might not want in two years," said Alex Quilici, YouMail's CEO. "It also follows that these types of users don't want to have their voice messages and visual voicemail locked into these devices and inaccessible when they switch to a new phone. Now these users can keep their voice messages forever and take them wherever they go, even as they purchase new devices or plans."

Demand for YouMail service on pre-paid phones has been significant but largely unavailable to date, with the company estimating that at least 500,000 pre-paid wireless customers have attempted to add the service without success, as most pre-paid wireless plans do not support the conditional call forwarding needed for services like YouMail.

"Red Pocket Mobile's partnership with YouMail makes for a winning combination for all freedom-loving wireless users across the country," said Red Pocket Mobile President Joshua Gordon. "YouMail's nearly four million registered users will gain tremendous value if they choose to switch to any of Red Pocket Mobile's Unlimited or PayGo contract-free calling options. In addition, many existing Red Pocket Mobile customers already want visual voicemail. Thanks to our partnership with YouMail, Red Pocket will now be able to provide these customers with the very best option, free of charge."

YouMail has also expanded its core features in the past year to include social caller ID, real-time "this line is out of service" call blocking and ditching, and in-network numberless voice messaging to other YouMail users. All YouMail features are available to Red Pocket Mobile customers when they sign up for YouMail.

"Red Pocket Mobile holds a strong position in the contract-free wireless space. We'll continue to keep pushing out new features that our users are demanding and doing so to new markets where our service makes the most sense," added Quilici.

YouMail can be downloaded free of charge by smartphone owners on major U.S. wireless carriers. YouMail currently supports iPhone and Android devices, as well as third-party applications developed for other mobile operating systems, such as Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 6.5 and WebOS.

Red Pocket Mobile SIM cards and service can be purchased at thousands of retailers across the country and directly from GoRedPocket.com.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances ...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.
