Hi, I have some messages that I'd like to save - ideally export so that I can save them on my computer. How can I do that?

THANKS!

    If you don't find an app that will do what you like, you can always use a tool like Skype to call your cell phone, then login and play the messages back recording them the a Skype call recorder. I have done this before.

    Try YouMail....It bypasses the built in visual voicemail, but the app is very good, similar notification, has inbox, trash and saved. I started using it on my BB, used it with Droid, and the iPhone app is the best yet. You basically forward your phone to their service. If you don't like it, a *73 brings you back home. The best part is that it is free (unless you want them transcribed and sent as texts!)....

    ou can extract voicemail from the iPhone backup.
    You need to run the backup extractor software from:

    Synch the iPhone with iTunes and use the software to extract "iPhone OS Files" from the latest backup. Look in:
    iPhone OS Files/Library/Voicemail
    The voice mail files will be 1.amr 2.amr ...

    QuickTime will play them. If you want to use them in iTunes, you can use QuickTime Pro to convert them to AIFF

    You can use iTunes to convert AIFF to other formats, such as MP3, AAC, or Apple Lossless.
