Save Cell Phone Voicemail Message

by on September 1, 2006

An Into Tomorrow listener submitted the following question!

Q: Hi, I would like to transfer voicemail messages from a cell phone to record them for permanent records because of sentimental value.

A: You might want to try to use your headphone jack on your cell phone as a line out and connect it to your line in or you microphone on your computer. I cannot promise this will work because I don’t know of anyone that has tried it and because the headphone jack runs the microphone on the headphones and the speaker. But there is a slight chance that a regular 2.5mm male-to-male cable would allow you to record the data on your computer.

Let us know it works out for you. If it does not then you might have to just hold your cell phone up to a recording device to get the messages off of it but obviously the quality would not be as good.

    Did anyone have any luck answering this question?


    I don’t know but I need to transfer threatening messages from my neighbor to my computer for later use. Any other ideas? I have a razr v3m and I have motorola phone tools. Is there anyway to save the message to the actual phone?


    Nevermind I got it. You can go to voicemail and then voice record with your phone 🙂


    Thanks so much… just voice recording works! I don’t know if I would have thought of that! This is awesome, I can store all those important messages now, without having to have like 29 messages saved on my phone, and then have them spontaneously erased.


    How do you voice record while in voicemail?
