Grand Central launches mobile service

Just when you thought Grand Central's voice mail service couldn't get any more fabulous, they send out an email that says:

... we launched a mobile version of the service that is accessible for
everyone with a Blackberry, a Treo, a Windows Mobile device or any mobile device with Internet access. GC Mobile is located at and gives you access to all the core features right from your mobile browser. Listen to voicemails, view contacts, change calls, and more.

It works just like they say -- You can listen to voice mails on your Blackberry (or other phone/PDA) as well as forward them to other users' email address. The browser based application is not just a repurposing of the standard website. They've optimized the site to make it as easy to use as possible on a PDA's small screen. It starts by opening up to just new voice mails and then lets you drive to the features from there. I have been using GrandCentral for several weeks and find myself using the service more as the weeks go by rather than less.
