How do I transfer saved voicemails to Computer?

I would like to know if there is a way to copy or download my saved voicemails (VMs) from my Samsung Galaxy III phone to my computer?  I have saved a few that are cute and would like to know if these are files that are stored somewhere on the phone that I can access and just copy from the device when it is plugged into my computer and can be read just like any other "drive" OR are they backed up in my Cloud somewhere that I can download them?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you Smiley Happy

Basic VMs are not downloaded to the phone.  They stay on Verizon's servers until they expire or are deleted by you.  There are some services outy there, fee-based, that can save basic VMs, I am not familiar with them personally.  The easiest is Visual VM.  You can try Visual and opt out of Premium before the end of the trial or anytime after opting in.  Then you just have the free basic VVM.

Using your Visual Voicemail app, you can save any available VM to the phone, then plug into PC via USB and navigate to that VVM folder and copy the files to PC.

Thanks for the reply but I don't have Visual Voice mail at this time.  Do you know of a way to accomplish this without using Visual VM?  Such as where these files hide on the cell phone so I can do the above w/o Visual VM?  Thank you.

Ok thanks for the additional info.  I don't see a free trial on my phone just the opt in for a monthly fee.  But I guess that seems to be the only way to save down these files that I would like to save.  Do you happen to know where the directory is they will be saved in on your phone once the VVM app is downloaded onto your phone?

Thanks again  Smiley Happy  Appreciate the help.

On my phone, an LG G2, they are in a folder named "VVM."

Free and simple solutions:

1) Forward this message to someone that has Visual VM

2) call to your voicemail from a phone that records calls (or download a call recorder on ur phone) and have it saved to ur phone
