When you receive a new voicemail, instead of receiving the notification with a traditional Voicemail Message Waiting Indictor (MWI), you receive a text message with the voicemail audio file as the attachment, and the message shows coming from the sender.
For example, if you receive a voicemail from John, you see that John sends you a text message with the voicemail audio file attachment. You can then listen to the message by simply clicking the audio file. No need to call in to your voicemail and listen to voicemail instructions or prior voicemail messages. You can also forward the audio file, save the audio file to your phone or upload it to the cloud. Even the voicemail is delivered to you as an audio file, you can still call into your voicemail as you did before to listen to messages or clean up your mailbox.
You need data to use this service because downloading the audio file will use data
