Voicemail to Text Mail: Ask Nelson Reply

Received this question from David Henderson, Pastor of Eagle’s Landing Church in Port Richey, FL.

“In a recent Time Management post you mentioned that you have automated your cell phone voice mail ‘by having voice messages automatically sent to me as text messages.’  How are you doing this?”

Thanks David!  Here’s two websites that do this for you:

www.YouMail.com – their conversion of voice mails to text message is almost instantaneous but its not 100% accurate since its still in beta and is done by a computer, not an actual human.  They also will send your voicemails to you as an email.  This is the service I currently use.  The only charges (at the time of this post) comes from the ‘call forward’ feature on your cell phone.

www.spinvox.com – this is a great service too but doesn’t work with all phone carriers.  I used them before YouMail and there are some great advantages.  Very accurate.

Hope this helps!  For more, use google to search “voice mail to text message.”

If you have a question, please use the Ask Nelson button on the right!

Your friend,
