    i don't know about reading them or gettin charged after 7 usages. i just check my youmail on my computer and listen with my computer speakers. sorry if you misunderstood. i THINK google voice does what you want but i think you have to use a different phone number and it really messes up doing the speech to text thing. you'll have to look more into it or hopefully someone that uses it can enlighten you. good luck :D

    EDIT: by visual voicemail i thought you meant the service offered by verizon for 2.99 per month. so sorry

    Google voice will do what you want. and u don't need to change phone #'s
    You need to get an invite though

    What tallica says may be true from what i've seen it will be hell reading any message you get.. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-general-discussions/46341-humurous-google-voice-transcripts.html <<<<read that

    Also i know i've read SOMEWHERE that the person you're calling doesn't see your real phone number...i could be wrong or maybe they've changed the game. tons of people SWEAR by google voice.

    also, i've seen at least 20 threads of ppl saying they've waited months to get an invite when they apply. hopefully someone sees your thread and 1) gives you an invite and 2) clears up what i think it's all about.

    just make sure to :bump: this thread after a day or so ...just to bring it back to ppl's attention. again...good luck:D

    Moastly the transcripts aren't horrible but they aren't great either.

    When u set up google voice u can select to use a google voice # for:
    1. All calls (People will see and have to call your GV #)
    2. Overseas calls only
    3. Don't use GV # (this is what I pick, people will see and use your normal Verizon #)

    I got my invite on Ebay for less then 3 bucks.
    I've seen people here giving out their extras though.

    The only thing to do after you get the invite is download GV from the market and config your voicemail (which GV walks you through).
