07-22-2007, 11:19 AM #1[HOW-TO] Pulling off Your Voicemails Onto Your Computer
I'm not sure if this is the right forum (or if this has been posted before), but here goes:
Well, sometimes I get a voicemail that I'd really like to keep. It's not always good enough to have it on your phone, or their servers. Sometimes I wish I could have it backed up on my computer, to send around to people . Well, with Jailbreak/Iphoneinterface, now you can.
I'm assuming you have jailbreaked your phone, and youc an use iphoneinterface.
Navigate to /var/root/Library/Voicemail ---
You should see numbered files (1.amr,2.amr...etc) for as many voicemails you have. And then you should also see Greeting.amr.
If you getfile on any of those, you can pull it off. AMR files are playable in Quicktime, and then you can export it to a more reasonable file type. I'm thinking of trying to replace my Greeting.amr with a higher quality, and seeing if that works.
Hope you all enjoy.

Too bad I cant use the drag & drop program to do this *sigh* My only option there is delete

I cant seem to figure out how to do it. So once in iphoneinterface, all I need to do is enter "/var/root/Library/Voicemail"? Any help would be appreciated.

No, you need to enter cd /var/root/Library/Voicemail.
Then do an ls to see whats in there.
Then do a getfile yourfilename.amr to get the files you want.

newbie here and happy to have found you
will this work with 1.1.1? I want to install jailbreak and the other app, but I am afraid of bricking my phone. I want to get the messages off the visual voicemail into my mac, thanks in advance.

When I navigate to var/root/library/voicemail all I see is "Voicemail.db" I have a few Voice mail that I want to save, but it's not showing up in the files as an AMR file... I just have 1 file that Voicemail.db, what is going on?

Any update on the voicemail.db problem?
