I’m on Verizon Wireless. When I decided to change to an iPhone, VZ informed me that I would lose all my saved voice mails in their system because Apple voice mail is on a different server system. Ever since my brother in law died, I have tried to keep at least one voice mail from each family member, just to be able to hear their voice whenever I wanted to.

Doubtless, there are several ways to get a voice mail from your cell phone into a .wav file that you can save on your PC. Here’s how I did it with minimum cost and effort.

I have an iMac with GarageBand. I had a Logitech USB microphone that I had never used. (USB mics are $12 to $25 on Amazon.) I plugged in the USB mic, opened GarageBand, set its preferences to use the USB mic as the input audio source. In GB, I opened a new music file and added a Real Instrument. Then I held my cell phone up to the mic and started recording as the message played. Took me a few tries to get the recording the way I wanted it. Saved the message as a song titled “Voice Mail Jane Happy Birthday”. Repeated for each message, creating a new song file for each message, and saving individually.

Once done, I imported the “songs” into iTunes, into a new folder “My Voice Mails.” From now on, I ‘m going to save special voice mail messages outside of the Verizon Wireless system.

I’d be interested in knowing how others have saved voice mails.

Back in the olden days, we used the squeegee that attached to the phone and a tape deck. ;)

I used to use a digital voice recorder.

These days, I have Google Voice (free, for any cell phone), which automatically creates .wav files from voice mails and emails them to me. No muss, no fuss.

One of these

It suction-cupped onto the actual phone.
