Personally, I don’t like dialing in for voicemail. (I’m one of those people who wants all my comms to end up in one place). Two companies (Simulscribe and Callwave) offer a service which takes your voicemail (regardless of telco) , converts it dynamically and sends you an email + the original voice message in email. Note: It’s US only at the moment as far as I can tell. If anyone finds an Aussie version, please post.
Nice technology. Sort of thing the Telco’s should offer as standard with your mobile phone.
Has a free service + a premium version.
Offers it for $9.99 US p/m
Only thing to note is that you have to provide your details to access your voicemail (password etc).
