    This tutorial will show you how to transfer your voicemail from your iPhone to your computer!

    There are two methods of doing this, through SSH, and by recording the voicemail through your headphone jack. The second method can also be used to record things from your iPod!

    Note: To get your voicemail, you need to have voicemail.

    The First Method: SSH

    Step 1:

    Install an SSH application such as WinSCP on your computer. You will also need to install OpenSSH on your iPhone.

    Step 2:

    In your SSH client, navigate to /private/var/mobile/Library/Voicemail. You will see some files. They are .amr files.

    Step 3:

    Transfer these AMR files to your computer. These files can be played in Quicktime.

    Now you can listen to your voicemails OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!!!

    Method 2: Record from the headphone jack.

    Step 1:

    Downlaod and install the application Audacity on your computer.

    Step 2:

    Connect your iPhone/iPod Touch to your computer with an audio line-in cable. (it looks like 2 headphone plug thingies)

    Step 3:

    Record whatever you want, voicemails, sound from videos, music, WHATEVER.

    And you're done!!

    Note: You can also use the application GetVoice, but I do not know anything about it nor have I ever tried it.



    Have fun!

    Was anybody able to do the recording version? I plugged a 1/8 in. stereo line into my iphone and wasn't able to get the voicemails to playback through the line out.

    I was able to hear the voicemails from the earpiece with the line plugged in. Any thoughts?

    have a good one

    Since it looks like it looks like its on the Media partition, why not use an App like DiskAid to get it out via USB?
