    downloading voicemails


      Hello folks,


      I have Verizon service on my blackberry, and was wondering if there was an easy way to download my voicemails as a .wav or .mp3 file. There are a couple that I would like to archive on my computer.


      Quality of the recording is pretty important, so I am hoping I dont have to try and record the voicemail as it plays on my cell.


      Thanks much

            Here's how you do it for free:


            All you need is an audio cable. Get a double male 3.5mm cable and plug one end into your headphone jack on your phone and the other end into the computer mic or line in.  The turn up your speakers and use a sound recorder.


            I could give you link that explains this better and has a link to free audio software that converts your message directly to MP3 and there is also a link for a cheap audio cable if you need one.  You'll have to send me a private message or email me direclty {edited for privacy}.  Good luck.

              There are also third party apps that you can use that give you the capability to save voicemails as mp3 files - YouMail and Google Voice are two that are free. Of course, they have to be in place when you receive the voicemail, so for those that are already on your phone, you'll need to use the suggestions above.

              For future use though, consider one of the free alternatives to Verizon's voicemail system. I've used YouMail and I'm happy with it.
