Visual Voicemail - iPhone vs. SimulScribe

5 Comments

i've been using it for over a month now and love it.

a) you CAN record custom greetings, so i dont know what you're talkinga bout there. you don't do it over the phone though - you actually record a *.wav and upload it to your account on their website's backend

b) the transcribing is pretty impressive. it's not always perfect...it depends on the person who's leaving the message. the big thing is that once a person leaves a voicemail the voicemail itself is downloaded to your phone immediately where you can listen to it. so even if you never use the transribe service, it's worthwhile because you never have to dial into voicemail again

my only gripe is that the transcribed messages take a few minutes to come through. so once someone leaves a message you have the voiceclip immediately, but if you dont want to listen to the message and want to read it, you have to wait an extra couple

LOL. What's truly funny is that it takes the TREO user an extra 25 seconds to try and figure out how to get the web site. Then, once you arrive, all you have are some lame text links. No photos, no enhanced content. Don't even get me started on the of other browser features that just aren't even available on the TREO.

GOTTA love it. I don't know what I'd do without this service. Being able to get a transcript AND audio file of all my voicemails is just too cool. Maybe they've updated the service since the other posts last year, but I'm able to customize my outgoing message through the phone, I get my transcripts and the audio file delivered to my berry via email AND I can still call in to delete messages and log in from home and use the website to manage everything. Not a bad deal if you ask me.
