Question VoiceMail to eMail transcription service

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Bell Mobility 8703e. I am looking for a service that will transcribe and send my voicemails to my email inbox.

There seem to be a number of services and options out there, but some don't seem to work for Canada or Bell mobility for one reason or another.

I see names like Dictomail, Phonewire, Simulscribe, Spinvox etc.
Does any body have one of these (or other services) operating on a Bell Mobility 8703e?

Any recommendations or advice appreciated!

Hello to you both. I'm the Managing Director of a transcription company called Way With Words. We can happily provide this service for you, assuming of course that we can access the recordings, e.g. via Internet or dial-in. This forum is not allowing me to post our web site address, but perhaps you can email me at [email address]

Alternatively, if you'd like to give me your contact details I can get in touch with you directly.

The problem is that to use these services effectively, you need to have conditional call forwarding and my blackberry does not. On My 8703e you call forward or you don't.

You need to be able to call forward when there is no answer or when the line is busy etc. Apparently some cell phones allow these options but as I have checked on a Rogers 8700r and a Bell 8703e and 7250. It does not seem to be an option.

Do any Blackberries alllow coditional call forwarding?

"conditional" call forwarding is native to gsm. My understanding was that cdma was also able to do this with special star codes. Have you checked with your carrier. I believe bell is able to do this.

Thanks for the info. I will try. The first time I got some low-level tech and all here said was the old party line of:"we don't support 3rd party apps"

I said "all I want to know is can you enable "conditional forwarding on a Bell BB8703e"

"We don't support third party apps"

If he had been within arms lenght, I would have slapped the ****y little sht!

Heh heh . . . it tried to say cokky (spelled in the conventional way, but got bleeped.)

ShaneToronto,

Can you set conditional call forwarding on your 8700r?

I took a look at a friend's Rogers BB and it didn't seem to be available on that device either?

It took me a while to find this, but it is there. I have a Pearl with T-Mobile and it works, it worked with my 8700g as well. Go into phone, menu, options, call forwarding. You should see when busy, when unreachable, and if ignored. Hope that helps.

There are standard gsm codes to set call forwarding too. I use this with Cingular for fastforward and this nice thing is you can setup the numbers in your phonebook; I have it as my first entry.

GSM codes - change settings on GSM mobile phones
