How do you keep your precious voicemail messages?

If you’re like me, you’ve had voicemail messages from your loved ones saved in your mobile or home phone voicemail for some time.

Unfortunately, voicemail is not like a safe, and sometimes these messages are deleted. If you want to protect your precious messages, there are solutions.

I used a microphone connected to my computer and the Audacity app. I played the saved messages from my phone near the microphone to record them, then converted them into MP3 files that are now safe in my computer and its automatic backups.

You can also do the same thing using two cell phones and an audio recording app, such as Smart Recorder or Recforge 2 on Android and Recorder Plus or Audioshare on iOS. Don’t dawdle too much and make these backups early this year to make sure you keep important messages from your loved ones!

As for yourself, have you found another solution to keep your important voicemail messages?

If Videotron is not going to allow you to save messages, then they should offer a service to their customers... Those messages are obviously stored as separate audio files on Videotron's servers, so why not let paying customers log in and download those files to their home computer directly instead of having to navigate the elaborate procedures described above????

Connect your phone to a recording device or use a call recording app to record the voicemail message as it plays. This method allows you to keep a digital copy of the message on your device.

It is likely that the messages are stored as audio files on Videotron's servers, so it would be helpful if paying customers could log in and download those files directly to their home computer. This would save customers from having to navigate complicated procedures to save their messages. Providing such a service would be a great way for Videotron to improve the customer experience and make their service more user-friendly.

Most smartphones have a built-in voicemail feature that allows you to save messages directly on your device. When you receive a voicemail, listen to it and look for an option to save or archive the message. The exact steps may vary depending on your phone model and operating system.

There are a number of voicemail transcription services that can convert your voicemail messages into text. This is a good option if you want to be able to search for specific keywords or phrases in your voicemail messages.

Certainly! One effective solution to safeguard important voicemail messages is to utilize voicemail transcription services offered by mobile carriers or third-party applications. These services convert voicemail messages into text format and deliver them to your email or text message inbox. By having a written copy of the messages, you can easily save and back them up for future reference. Utilizing voice recording apps or screen recording software can also be useful for capturing and preserving voicemail messages. Thanks
