Big news!  I just switch from my awesome IPhone to an HTC ONE.  It was a sad day for me, but the HTC ONE seemed like a very good functioning phone.  I got the new phone a few days ago I have spent quite a bit of time messing with all the features.  I came across the ‘Voicemail to Text’ and thought it sounded pretty neat.  You don’t have to call for your messages, the software takes the messages and translates them to a text message.  Even better, it had a seven day free trial so I thought!  Why not?  Well after using it, I realized that this software is only good for one thing… a chuckle!

Example 1:

Original voicemail message:

Hey Mom. I am calling to see if you can bring some pizza up to the school for my lunch.

HTC software translated it to text:

Hey how you know how this is going be able to go to the I’m taking the kids to.

 

Example 2:

Original voicemail message:

Oh my god, she posted a picture of the ring on Facebook. I didn’t realize he would be asking her so soon. I also need to talk to you about the color run, I am on my way to work. If I don’t answer I will talk to you later.

HTC software translated it to text:

Paul my god I was on things stock she put a picture honoring on facebook. Hi Jenny it’s happening I’m on my way to work.

Example 3:

Original voicemail message:

Hello. It’s just your Mom. I was calling you to talk for a minute. I will talk to you later.

HTC software translated it to text:

Hey jim it’s anthony in talk to you for a minute … I will talk to you later bye bye.

Um…. No wonder this software that they call a ‘premium’ software only costs $1.99 a month.  The would be much better off not giving you a seven day free trial because ultimately no one is going to purchase it once they see the horrible translations it produces.  Though it could be worth $1.99 just for the good laughs I’ve had.
