AT&T customers can now read their voicemails as a text message

AT&T customers can now read their voicemails as a text message
First there was voicemail which allowed callers to place a message to your number if you were too busy to pick up the phone. Then the advent of visual voicemail arrived which literally allowed phones to save voicemails directly on the handset  - it then allowed users to pick and choose at will which ones they want to hear. Now AT&T has stepped it up by launching a new service that allows your voicemails to be converted to text messages. AT&T’s Voicemail to Text feature will cost you $9.99 a month so you can have your voicemails converted to a text message, email, or both. That seems pretty spectacular in the growing trend of silent communication, but we wonder how accurate it will really come out. So if you really don’t want to listen to your voicemails, you can check out this new feature provided by Nuance and read them to yourself on your phone.

I agree. It should be fairly accurate, though. They've got voice recognition systems as well as live operators transcribing it... but it's still way too much for a feature. It'll probably come down in a few months if no one uses it.

Yea I wouldn't pay for it either! It would be nice to have but not worth paying for.

$9.99???? thats insane for such a feature. It shouldnt even cost money and if so, than $1.99 at MOST.. It's nothing special whatsoever!!
