Help with Vonage and EVO - Strange Problem
I have been using Vonage for years now....no problems. I havel always had my home voice mail messages forwarded to my smartphone for listening. This is done via email and vonage sends the voicemail as a .wav file. I received these normally with my EVO on Android 2.1
Since the update to Froyo 2.2.....the program that EVO brings up to listen to the voicemail message (.wav file) says that it cannot read that file type. I can no longer listen to my voice mail messages.
I'm hoping that someone else has experienced this and solved. I am at a loss. Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't understand why people are having this problem just surface now with 2.2, I couldn't listen to my wav voicemail even in 2.1. The problem is certain types of wav files that Google refuses to support in the O/S.
Anyway, the solution is an app in the market called "Remote Wave" but it'll cost ya $3.

I can personally confirm that, before 2.2, .wav attachments from Vonage via gmail worked perfectly. Now, in 2.2, they are no longer supported. Don't know if this was a deliberate change or a bug, however.
As mentioned above, Remote Wave will do the job but you'll have to pay the $3.
As for Vonage Visual Voice Mail, I like it and it's a great feature to have but the transcription accurracy is spotty at best. For any messages longer than a sentence or two, you still need to listen to the actual message to verify the context. And, even if it transcribed perfectly, it only transcribes the 1st minute of a message -- anything longer and you need to listen.
