Does anyone (and when I say anyone, I'm particularly thinking any Telecom employees) know if it is possible to get a copy of call minder messages supplied as audio files? (eg mp3/wav or similar)??

I realize I could rig something up myself, but I thought I'd check here first.
It would be extremely appreciated if someone can assist.

This has nothing to do with Call Minder - it's a package of NZ voice promopts for the Asterisk PBX (and is a recommended download if you're running Asterisk!)

Sorry - I just thought you were after generic voice prompts for voice mail, rather than doing your own.
No beer last night, so I can't blame that.

Thanks for your replies - I kinda guessed that it wouldn't be possible, but thought it was worth checking.

Will try recording them ourselves.

I've done this a couple of times by using the Call Transfer feature on the mobile, and my PC with a fax/answerfone application: Dial your PC, let it answer and start recording, make a second leg call to your mailbox, start the message play, and hang up. Sound quality is better this way than I would guess you'd get by holding the mobile up to the PC microphone...

Thanks for all the info - it's really appreciated.

It's not normally something I'd bother doing, but my sister would like to keep some old (funny)messages from my mother, who unfortunately died last week after a bypass operation.

Thanks again for your help everyone.

No judicial order required, call the Telecom call investigation centre as mentioned. $50 bucks and the'll put it on a CD for you.

If you've deleted them and hung up from that call they gone for ever.
