    YouMail, an alternative visual mail service, is available for free in Cydia. The purpose of YouMail is to replace and extend the features of the original Phone.app’s visual voicemail. You create an account, free, at YouMail.com and install the system tool from Cydia and you’re ready to go. The most useful feature is creating personalized greetings for family and friends. So when you’re spouse calls, it’ll greet them specifically by name or you can customize one for them. Also, if you are plagued with debt collectors and telemarketers, you can add their phone number or even a partial number and set their calls to be “ditched” or automatically declined without every actually ringing to you. I have mine set to give them a “number disconnected” greeting that is identical to ones you normally hear when dialing the wrong number and then ditching the call. My annoying calls have stopped. You should definitely add YouMail to the list of must haves.

    For use with U.S. And Canadian carriers. Unknown compatibility with other oversea carriers. The YouMail service requires calls to be forwarded to their servers. YouMail is online based and can be accessed through Cydia’s system integration with little effort and no need to manually setup call forwarding. YouMail is still applicable for non Jailbroken devices with the use of their free App Store App, YouMail. Call forwarding is set up manually. YouMail is also available for Android, Blackberry, and Windows smartphones.
