Starting on October 31, Sprint offered an updated version of its visual voicemail application to the EVO 4G. The new service transcribes voicemails into text form so that they may be read (rather than listened to) by customers. Sprint spokesperson Kristin Wallace said in an email to Phone Scoop, "Customers can try the feature for free for one month before subscribing. After the trial, the cost will be $1.99 per month. The service will be rolled out to all visual voicemail users in the near future." Sprint did not indicate exactly which devices would get the updated software, nor exactly when it would be pushed out. Sprint didn't make any formal announcement about the new feature. Instead, it was spotted by end users.

Google Voice has the same feature and functionality......

......FOR FREE!!!!! I've the Evo 4G but sorry I'm not dishing out hte extra $$ per month. I'm already doing it with the 4G Premium and when this is something you can get for free elsewhere, it makes absolutely no sense to do this.

A truly boneheaded move by Sprint, not to roll out the feature but to charge for it when it's free elsewhere! 🤨 🙄
Yea but unlike Google Voice, Sprint's feature maybe be more accurate
You should talk to verizon about there visual voice mail. 🤣 While your at it talk to them about there navigation and live tv to they charge monthly fees for all of these which are included free on Sprint. 😎

I hope it actually works

I've used multiple Voice-To-Text and usually they're garbage in accuracy.
