I have a verizon LG VOYAGER phone. I have voice mail messages from my mother who regretfully passed away this week.
I want to know IF or how to save/transfer/send theses messages so I can keep them.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

I am in the same situation. My dad passed away over a year ago. I had 2 messages from him but lost one accidentally. I have verizon wireless. I wish they had a way to do it. I was told that Visual Voicemail might do it but they were not sure if old messages could be transferred.
If anyone has a way please let me know. My whole family is counting on me to get this message saved. It is the only recording of his voice we have.

voice mail

Remember that Voice mail is not stored in your phone, it is stored in a remote location. When you listen to voice mail from your phone it actually dials a different phone # to retrieve your messages.

I finally did it!!

I have an Omnia on Verizon and it came with a head phone adapter because the headphone plugs into the same jack that I use to charge my phone.
I came across another adapter that has the end I plug into the phone as well as 2 other ports that are the same as the jack port.
I plugged the adapter into the phone jack (on the phone), then plugged my headphones into regular 3mm end, then I plugged the larger headphone jack into the 2nd port.
I then plugged the other end of the audio cable that I purchased at Best Buy into my microphone jack on my laptop, clicked on the sound recorder to bring it up on the desktop. I called my voicemail, hit record and voila I have my grandsons wake up call.
It was saved as a wave file, but there are lots of free programs to convert to mp3.
If you have a cell phone that uses the 3mm jack or similar, all you would need is a converter so you could plug both the headphones (so you can hear your voice message), and plug the other end of the audio cable into the microphone jack on your computer.
I hope this is clear. I will check back to see if there are any questions.

Another way

If you can get Verizon's "Visual Voice-mail" service (maybe 2.99\per month charge), you can forward the voice-mail's via email. They will be in .qpc format (PureVoice File) and you should be able to open them with Quicktime. I did get an error when trying to play some of the files but found a free online conversion utility ( I converted the files to .mp3 and they sounded great.

Need help from any Tech person

My wife's Mother left her a voicemail before she passed and I was unaware of that. We ported to another carrier (from Verizon), but the service was not good and after 2 days ported back. In the process the voicemails did not transfer. I need help to obtain those voicemails. Can anyone help???

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
