It was rumored that this was coming out sometime this month but it looks like Nuance and AT&T made it official. AT&T is now offering Voicemail converted to text for $9.99 a month. That’s a pretty good deal since most companies like PhoneTag charge $29.95 for unlimited voicemail transcription.
For just $9.99 per month, Voicemail to Text lets you:
- Receive your voicemail messages as text messages, emails, or both
- Respond how you want – call back, send a text, or reply by email
- Forward your voicemail messages to others by text message or email
- Save your messages in your phone or on your computer for as long as you want
- Your traditional voicemail option doesn’t change – you can still dial in to get your messages as you always have, whenever you want.
The service is powered by Nuance which is the same company that powers the voice dialing feature on BlackBerrys. Should be interesting to see how this plays out. Check out the details on AT&T’s website at this link.
