    My IPhone 7 plus creates text on my voice mail received messages. My wife's 6 plus does not do this. Is this unique to the 7 or can I make settings change to get the same function in the 6?

    Your wife's iPhone should do this as well. I'm on AT&T and voicemail transcription on my 7 Plus is pretty good, though it can be a bit hit and miss as far as which voicemails will be transcribed.

    That feature is “is available on iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE with Siri language set to English (United States or Canada). Your carrier also needs to support visual voicemail for voicemail transcription to work.”

    Update: Also available on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (obviously). Apparently these were not available when that article was published, so they were not mentioned.

    I'm unable to open the link. Is transcription not available on the IPhone 6 Plus?

    Not on the 6 Plus, no.

    The link is just so you could read the article where I pulled the quote from.
