T-Mobile Visual Voicemail app

The Visual Voicemail app saves you time, by letting you manage your voice messages without dialing into voicemail. Scan a list of your voicemail messages, and you choose which messages you want to listen to now, while passing over messages that don't need your attention at that moment.
