    hey guys a buddy of mine on the howardforums allmanallpimp posted 2 days ago that they released this for the indulge and the optimus just letting ya know seems to work pretty good its not perfect but suppose if ur in a hurry and got no time to check every single vmail u got this could help out a lil. now this is free for all $60 plan users dunno how much it is to add to a basic plan, anyways here is how it looks.

    [​IMG]

    speech to txt isnt accurate but close enough i was saying testing testing 123 checking out the visual voicemail you know lol but i guess with my hispanic accent and slanging i really cant blame it.

    report back any bugs that we should know about for now its working just fine for me.

    I have the $60 plan but for those who don't go here and see if you can
    download voice mail plus which is the same thing as voice mail....go figure.

    I tested the one from metro and it worked as far as voice to text..it was on the money . I'm sure there will be some hic ups in the future but I love the idea of this.

    I also use speech to text (It's in the settings for phone)when texting and surprised at how could that is.

    LOL I almost don't have to touch this phone to do anything :D

    Sorry I didn't test it because I was able to get it from Metro being a $60 plan customer.

    Hey..try it for the trial period and see if it's worth it to you.

    Now that I have it I don't see me living without it.

    Not having to call into voicemail to see if it's important enough to respond to or not is a big plus ...if you need to hear how they sound (Happy or Mad) just hit the play button and it plays instantly.

    well i dont think they would offer such an app for free cuz it requires it accessing your phone's voice mail then translating the speech to txt then sending it to u. as far as i can see the only hope for such an app for free would be from google voice and theres no telling how much longer they are gonna offer that service for free.

    Ok, so how do I get this installed?
    I click download from the metro App store and opera opens up, downloads a zip.

    Now what?

    I haven't really used the Metro visual voicemail that much. I am noticing that i do get the voice messages downloaded but i don't receive the voice to text.
    I see in the screenshots that is has a voice to text. I am wondering if others are having the same problem.

    I know where the zip is, I open it and then what? it's not like an executable or anything.... I assume it has to be place din a certain folder.... but where?

    I don't think that the voicemail to text option is for those with the 50$ LTE plan.....just the voicemail.

    Yeah, I have the $50 plan and I only get voice out of the app. During the initial setup, the app checks which plan you have and disables the text feature automatically if you're on the $50 plan. :(

    You can pay 3$ a month extra to add this to the lower plans.

    Ummm, not totally following this thread. I have the $60 plan. The one time I'd called Metro CS about this (when I first saw it announced), he'd told me it was $3 monthly. But I thought that was for any plan as an add-on. If indeed $60 plan folks are included gratis, can someone walk me through how to download the applicable sw, or do I need to call (reluctantly) Metro CS again about it.

    Thanks. Shel.

    4th follow prompts.

    Hope this helps
    VVM works on $50 & $60 plans.
    $50 plan doesnt have voice to text.

    Thanks Brian5337--That was a perfect walk-through for those of us on the slower bus. Oh, just me on the bus? That's cool. :)

    The visualvoicemail keeps force closing on me and doesn't wants to even open. It was working fine but it stopped...
    Are any of you having this problem?
