Read your voicemail with Alltel

We’ve seen this type of service before, but not with mobile phone voicemail. Through the company SpinVox, Alltel will now offer its 12 million subscribers a service which will transcribe their voicemail and send it to them via text message. It’s a novel concept in theory, as it saves valuable time. However, an old boss of ours used a similar service for his home voicemail, and would regularly forward these transcribed messages to us for follow-up. To make an understatement, there were a few errors strewn throughout. We’re not going to knock this service yet, since we haven’t tried it. If SpinVox has it right, though, this deal with Alltel could lead to the big time. No pricing has been announced for the service, which is expected to be launched in the final quarter of this year.]]>
