How to Record With a BlackBerry


You can record with your BlackBerry smartphone by using the Voice Notes feature to capture sounds or conversations. This can come in handy when you're documenting interviews and meetings or just when you're trying to remember what groceries to buy. Voice Notes can record things even when you are 10 feet away from the source, and the feature is easy to use.

Things You'll Need

  • MicroSD memory card
  • Put a microSD memory card in your BlackBerry. Your phone needs expanded memory to store your Voice Notes, and the BlackBerry works only with a microSD memory card. The cards come in different storage capacities, ranging from 256MB to 4GB. Insert the memory card in your BlackBerry's memory card slot; refer to your phone’s manual to find the slot on your model.

  • Look for the Voice Notes application in your BlackBerry. Press the “Menu” button and go through the icons until you find the one that looks like a microphone. Use the trackball to click on the microphone icon.

  • Position your BlackBerry before you start recording. The microphone on your BlackBerry is located at the bottom of the phone and can record up to 10 feet away from the audio source.

  • Press the trackball to start recording. You can record for as long as you want. However, if you will be using Voice Notes often to record lengthy events such as lectures, meetings or interviews, make sure your microSD memory card has a high storage capacity so you don't run out of memory in the middle of recording.

  • Stop recording by pressing the trackball again. To name your recording, press the folder icon and type in a name. You can retrieve the file any time you want from your BlackBerry Voice Notes folder.

Tips & Warnings

  • For good quality Voice Notes, place your BlackBerry between five and 10 feet from the source.
  • Some BlackBerry phones do not have recording features. Check your unit’s features in the manual.
