AT&T is enabling a $10/month option that you can tack onto your iPhone or other AT&T device which will transcode your voicemails using speech recognition and send them to your phone via email or SMS.  Sure, Google Voice has been doing this for awhile and doing it free, but AT&T’s version doesn’t force you to give your voicemeil over to Google who will probably index it and slip in ads at some point in the future.

  • Respond how you want
