Crave giveaway of the week: YouMail visual voice mail subscription
For this week's giveaway, visual voice mail company YouMail offers up 10 subscriptions to its voice-to-text transcription service.
If your friends are talkers, you're going to want listen up. YouMail is a visual voice mail service that lets you view and listen to missed calls on your mobile phone or online in any order you like. Some other features include customized greetings and call blocking.
This week's illustrious giveaway graces not 1, but 10 lucky winners with a six-month subscription to YouMail's $17.99 per month Read-It 150 plan, which goes a step further to translate up to 150 voice messages per month into text.
YouMail will work with any mobile phone, and there are free apps optimized for iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android handsets as well.
So, how do you try to win this six-month subscription? Let me lay down the basic rules. As usual, please read them carefully; there will be a test.
- Register as a CNET user. Go to the top of this page and hit the "Join CNET" link to start the registration process. If you're already registered, there's no need to register again.
- Leave a comment below. You can leave whatever comment you want. If it's funny or insightful it won't help you win, but we're trying to have fun here, so anything entertaining is appreciated.
