Rogers Wireless announced today a national rollout of Voicemail to Text services powered by SpinVox . Delivered on Rogers’ GSM network through SpinVox, the service gives on-the-go professionals quick, easy and convenient access to voicemail messages by accurately converting them to SMS and delivering them in real time to their mobile devices.
Rogers Voicemail to Text powered by SpinVox service is available this month in seven provinces, including BC, Ontario, Québec and the Atlantic provinces and is available in both English and French. The service will launch in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in early 2008.

Voicemail to text services are a huge time time saver as it eliminates the need to dial-in to pick up voicemail. Instead, a transcript of the voicemail message is relayed via text so users can simply read the message wherever they are. I'm a big fan of the SimulSays service by SimulScribe, which is a BlackBerry-specific application and today it was JUST Announced it's Finally Available in Canada too (always good to see some healthy competition). You can get it for free until January 15th, 2008.
