deathstar2For the longest time, voicemail was one of those that remained stagnant in the digital sphere. It was a simple service that was left behind as people of all flavors moved to more text based communications. Who had time for sifting through voicemails anymore? Then came visual voicemail. A revolution of epic proportions. Instead of being forced to listen to each message individually, now you could pick and choose what and when you checked your old time messages. And finally, voice-to-text/transcribed messages for voicemail brought the old voice based medium into the modern age with a means of delivering a voice message as text giving you even greater power with your mobile device. The service is become more widely available as popularity grows. One of the more prominent users of said technology is Google whom includes the feature freely in their Google Voice service. But not everyone has Google Voice. AT&T would like you to know that they too now have voice-to-text voicemails — for $9.99/month. Anyone thinking that’s a bit pricey for such a simple feature? Well, that’s because it is. Hmm, pay $10/month for something I can get for free or significantly cheaper from various other outlets or pony up? Ya, I’ll pass.
