Free Alternatives to AT&T's $10/Month Voicemail-to-Text Service

Illustration for article titled Free Alternatives to ATTs $10/Month Voicemail-to-Text Service

We heard about AT&T's Voicemail-to-Text service back in December, but now it's being shoved down our throats again with email reminders aplenty. Why don't we care about the $10/month service? Because we can get something better. For free.


Google Voice and its transcribing powers were our first thought, but it's not the only alternative. Ribbit Mobile offers some decent transcriptions and has a pretty solid iPhone app available and as does YouMail.


Lifehacker actually made it a point to pit some of these transcription services against each other a long time ago, but I'm certain that both quality and prices have changed since then. Either way, these services remain free—or at least cheaper than AT&T's service—and have been around long enough to work out some kinks. So check them out and spend the ten bucks you'll save each month on ice cream or something.

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

I've been using Google voice for a while but the transcription is hit or miss. They ask for donations to make google voice transcription better but I'm not sure if I care to invest.
