US Cellular's new Voice Mail to Text service is free for the first 30 days, then $3 per month after
Standard voicemail is so last century, right? We know the drill by now, we see that nifty voicemail notification, dial-in to our account, and finally listen to whoever it is yapping to our so-called voice mailbox. Well folks, the times have been changing if you haven’t noticed, and US Cellular customers are finally being introduced into more modern times with its latest offering.

Today, US Cellular announced that they’re bringing Voice Mail to Text service to its customers, which is powered by Nuance’s fully-automated Dragon Voicemail-to-Text platform. Essentially, rather than doing it the old fashion way, the new service allows subscribers to read their voicemails via text message or email – all on their mobile device.

In addition to making it easier to organize voice mails, the service provides the usefulness of discreetly checking voice mail without all the tedious steps we’re normally accustomed to doing with traditional voicemail. Finally, they can respond to voicemails through either text message or email – whichever they prefer.

Thankfully, US Cellular is allowing customers to try out the new service for absolutely free, though, it’s only for 30 days. Afterwards, subscribers will need to shell out $2.99 per month to continue using the service. Therefore, if you want to remove the hassle of traditional voicemail, this might obviously appeal to you since it streamlines the process.

It's not only US Cellular that has Voice Mail to Text, Sprint does as well.

AT&T as well. I think Verizon too. But it's a joke to charge for it, when Google Voice provides this for free
