AT&T's Voicemail to Text service uses voice recognition technology to convert your voice mail messages into a text form. It then routes the messages directly to your phone in the form of a text message or to an email account that you specify. Voicemail to Text is a paid service. As of February 2011, the service costs $3.99 per month. You can still dial directly into your voice mail box to browse through your messages over the phone.
Log into your AT&T wireless online account (see Resources).

Select the "Make Effective/Expire Today" radio button. Click "Next." Click "Accept."

Press and hold "1" on your phone to call your voice mail. Follow the phone's instructions to enter your new voice mail password and record your new greeting.
- Adding the Voicemail to Text service to your plan deletes all of the voice mail messages that are currently stored in your voice mail box. Check them before adding the service to your plan.
