    Default Voicemail Transcriptions on iOS 10 (Carrier Issue / Reset Network?)

    I am wondering why I don't see Voicemail Transcriptions on iOS 10.0.1? I was told it was out on the last public beta. I have never seen it. Is it not on AT&T. I did a couple Google search and did not find much. Maybe there was a post about it only being on the 6S and newer and not on he iPhone 6. Anyone shed some light?

    I only found a few articles about resetting the network settings or swapping sim cards.

    Thanks

    I'm on AT&T's network and I am running iOS 10.0.1. Having said that, I haven't received any voicemail messages since installing the GM, but I do recall seeing the VM transcripts on the previous beta version.

    Maybe I just don't have any voice mails since then? I guess I will have to call myself sometime or ask my wife to :-)

    Older voicemails received prior to the update do not receive transcriptions; instead they simply note the following: Transcription not available. Text from transcriptions can be copied using the standard iOS clipboard tools.

    .... I don't even get that. I am on 10.0.1 and don't see any VM changes at all... 7 is on order, so we will see with the new phone when it arrives. Wiping my 6 and giving it to my wife, and she will have a clean install of 10 at that time. Maybe then something will happen. Will see next weekend when the 7 arrives on Friday.

    Mine is also not working on Verizon, tried the network reset and also pulling the sim without any luck, like you hoping it's working on my 7 when it comes.

    Default Voicemail Transcriptions on iOS 10 (Carrier Issue / Reset Network?)

    Voicemail transcriptions seem fine on my 6s Plus running the GM. I came from the public beta.

    Have 6s AT&T and 10.0.1 GM installed. Am receiving transcribed voicemails. Seems to be a timing issue. Example:

    1. I don't get to the phone fast enough and the voicemail is left. It says transcribing but I listen and delete before it's done.

    2. I'm in a meeting and receive 2 voicemails. When I open the voicemail tab and click on one it is already transcribed.

    Not sure what it means. It's seems to work best if you close out of the voicemail and give it time to process but by then you could just listen to it.

    The transcriptions I get seem a bit wonky anyway.

    Supposed to be automatic... but I don't see it at all on my iPhone 6 with iOS 10.0.1 on AT&T

    My iPhone 7 comes in a week, so will just assume it will work there. The 6 will be reset for my wife with a clean install, so who knows?

    Working for me in Australia with Telstra, one caveat (that I'm not sure is still a requirement with GM) is that I had to set my Siri Language to English (United States) to force this to work.

    Here is the extract from the GM release notes:

    Phone
    Voicemail transcription (beta) is available on iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE with Siri language set to English (United States or Canada)

    Well as mentioned in my 1st post, I am on an iPhone 6 not 6s, so that could be why (as posted in my OP)... but since no one commented on it, I assumed I was wrong and it worked on the 6. So that explains it.. I guess. Since your post says transcription (beta) is avai.... wondering when off Beta if that changes? Or will only be 6s forward. Thought the GM would be as fully functional as what's coming this week. But I guess will wait for my 7 and check out how it works next weekend.

    Most likely will remain the same going forward. SE, 6S and up.

    I'm on a iPhone 6 and I'm not getting anything regarding voicemail transcription, so I guess it is a "6s and up" only thing.

    Boo.

    No idea, must require more processing power or a part of the chip not found in the iPhone 6. It's on the apple site that the iPhone 6 and earlier are not supported for this.

    I have a 6s and it's not working for me so I don't think it's that. Verizon doesn't seem know how to fix it neither.

    See 6s doesn't work either. Fix it Apple!
