How to Transfer AT&T Voicemail Messages for Recording

Save

If you're willing to pay to transfer your voice mail messages to a CD or tape, you can use a third-party production service such as CBW Productions. But if you want to perform the task yourself, there are a few ways you can go about it. If you subscribe to AT&T's U-verse Voice or Unified Messaging phone service and you own a BlackBerry or iPhone, you may use AT&T's Voicemail Viewer app to send your voice mail message to a computer. Alternatively, you can use a telephone recording adapter to dub the messages into the computer. Then burn the messages to CD.

Things You'll Need

  • AT&T Voicemail Viewer app installed on your BlackBerry or iPhone
  • Telephone recording adapter
  • Windows 7 computer
