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?


Open your Voicemail app. Tap, or tap and hold the message you want to save. In the menu that appears, tap the one that says “save”, “export”, or “archive.” Select the storage location in your phone you would like the message to go to, and tap “Ok” or “Save.”
