Save an outgoing voicemail message

How it works

When a loved-one passes away, sometimes the only recording you have of them is locked away on an answering machine or a voicemail box. Eventually the recording will disappear, either due to someone recording over it or service getting canceled. Before it disappears, use VMSave to save it, completely free.

1. Put your number in above and push the Make Call button.

Any phone number in the world will work. Make sure no one will answer the phone, other than the voicemail or answering machine.

2. VMSave will call your number and record the outgoing message.

Any length message, any number of rings. You will receive a call from (734) 217-2065. Remember, let the machine get it.

3. Download your recording

VMSave will give you a link to download your recording as an MP3.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I dial a non-US number?

Use international format assuming the call is dialing out from the US. Don't use your country's dial-out prefix and do include the +. For example, if you're calling a number in South Africa, use this format: +491749123123. If VMSave complains about not having permission to dial that number, please email reset@petekeen.net and I'll fix it up.

How much does this cost?

It's completely free. If you would like to donate to keep it going, click here to donate with PayPal. Thank you so much for your support.

How many times can I use this?

To prevent abuse, each number can only be called once every three months. If you need this to be reset, please email reset@petekeen.net. I'll reset numbers on a case by case basis.

Is my information saved?

Your phone number is stored for three months. Recordings will be deleted every 24 hours.

What about the messages in the voicemail box?

Unfortunately, VMSave can only access the outgoing message. There are various ways to get voicemail from, for example, an iPhone backup, but that's beyond the scope of this tool. Sorry.

Why did you make this?

In 2013 I had two close family members pass away within months of each other, but their voices have stayed around on answering machines and voicemail boxes. It's time to move on, but their voices shouldn't be extinguished.
