    I've been using my note for the last couple months but loaded iOS 10 on my 6s plus. Is voice mail transcribe working right now? If so is this a feature that can be disabled by carriers? I've always paid for the visual voicemail on android and I'm excited for this on iPhone was just looking for some info on it. Thanks.

    I don't think so. It might be one of the features that Apple has announced but yet to introduce to iOS 10 betas.

    It may be a carrier dependent feature like Visual Voicemail is now on the iPhone. It may be a feature that is added to the VVM server on the carrier end. I haven't heard much about the inner workings of it yet.

    I understand that Visual Voice Mail is at it's heart a bastardised IMAP4 implementation, meaning that your voicemail is basically a audio file that exists in a mailbox. Given Apple's strong stance on security, specifically differential, it is not beyond belief that your phone would download the message, process it locally (possibly using Siri online services, like normal voice commands), meaning it wouldn't be "another" opportunity for your telco to charge you.

    Sounds possible.

    This I would like to see! for me to add the Voicemail to Text from my carrier is $5 a month and I refuse to pay that. so now this would do the same and be free. Carriers that charge for this will not be happy! lol
