Sprint officially announces their Voicemail 2 Text app specifically for BlackBerry users. The official press release can be read here but, here's the gist of it:
Wireless devices give consumers the freedom and flexibility to stay connected from anywhere. With voicemail-2-text apps, customers can efficiently identify and respond to messages in a manner that is convenient for them.
This week, Sprint launched a voicemail-2-text app for its BlackBerry users. Sprint BlackBerry customers now have an easy and convenient way to receive and respond to voicemails. With Sprint Voicemail-2-Text, customers can quickly and easily read their voicemail messages via email or text message and then respond to the message with just a simple click. In addition messages can be easily forwarded and saved – no more writing down messages or misplacing them.
The application has a 30 day FREE trial (standard text and data rates will apply) and after that it is available for a monthly fee of $1.99. After your trial subscription has ended, you can simply open the app and select Subscribe to continue using the service with the monthly fee. Sprint's Voicemail 2 Text app supports select Bold, Curve, Style, Tour & Touch (I'm thinking they mean the 9930 or 9860 here).
I haven't been able to get the download to complete as of yet (keep getting an error message halfway through the download). Curious if anyone else has gotten the app to download and how accurate the SMS messages are so drop a comment below!
