Just wondering with the new phone announcement that's due on August 11... if we will be getting the voicemail text feature, I just know I really really need the voicemail text feature on any new phone coming out on August 11th.

That's a carrier thing not a Samsung thing you'll have to reach out to your carrier to find out if that's going to be available

For what? Like a read the transcript to screen your screend calls to voicmail? Or to text to it?

For someone like me who gets a lots of voicemail per day, I would love if it can be converted to text in order to see which calls I've to return back rather than having to spend 30 min listening to voicemail messages. So basically to answer your question it's a feature that converts your voicemail to text also sometimes I don't catch the name or phone number the senders left which leaves me having to listen again to a particula message.

There are apps that do that now. I use YouMail. Also blocks robocallers and spam. A GREAT app. Been using it for several years. Also access it via the web.

I hear you but I really don't like when 3rd party app asked for app permissions that are too intrusive & that's exactly what Youmail does plus although I want this feature I don't think I want it badly enough to download another app. Thanks though for the suggestion.

You might be right but I'm using the same carrier for my iPad and Galaxy S. I didn't have to setup nor activate anything on my iPad but the VVM feature is working while on my phone it's not. Also, I've checked the settings and nothing is pointing me to VVM activation but as you suggest I'll just reach out to my carrier and see what they've to say. Thanks.

So often with some carriers apple has a contract that that's an automatic thing and sometimes android-based phones need a subscription-based voicemail to text at least that's how Verizon does it

Well, I have always had an indication that a voice mail was left, this phone never shows if a voice mail is on my phone, I actually missed a surgery.date because of this flaw.
