    Best way to record/save a cell phone voice mail message?

    Hi all,

    I need to save some voice mail messages from my LG CU500, and was wondering what the best way to do it was, besides holding the cell phone speaker up to a mini recorder.

    I just thought about it, I have an old answering machine, I could probably just remotely check in via a landline and record with that, right?

    And before anyone starts talking legalities concerned, I'm re-recording messages people have previously left on a voice mail.

    Aren't they currently in a "saved mode" which would probably mean they are sitting on the telco's sever?

    Would you really need to do anything? And if you do record them to another device - how many times a day would you need access to em?

    Thanks for the response, Steve.

    Cingular saves held messages only 14 days, so record it or lose it.

    I may never need to access them, but if and when push comes to shove, it'll be nice to have them on-hand.

    Ideas?

    Kinda expensive...

    Or if you know someone with a Nokia S60, you could borrow it and use this less expensive software.

    And here is your most expensive option. But it is also the most reliable and lasting of the 3.

    EDIT:
    Ebay also has some simliar alternatives to the 3rd for <50$

    Wouldn't I be able to check the messages from a landline, while my answering machine (old style, with micro-cassette tape) is taping? I'll need to get that out of storage to try, but it should work, right?
