Default Program to record a message??

Please Login to Remove!

I used to have a moto i730. I now have a bb7520.

I am horribly missing the ability to make a recording on my device. I used the recording abilities on my old phone to make notes to myself while on the road, or at a client. Or while driving if a new client called I could record the phone call (to get their address and contact numbers) so that I did not have to pull over, or write it down while shifting and turning. (I only have two hands).

This is probably the only feature that the 7520 does not have, that I really am missing.

I know I can call my vm and record a message and then send it to myself, but there are so many button presses. (not to mention the use of my minutes). I used to make about 5 or so recordings a day when I had this feature on my old phone, and doing it via vm now just does not seem like a good solution.

I have looked and looked, and I am just so surprised that there is not a program that has been writen to do this. (or maybe I'm just not seeing it)

Does anyone have any solutions, or suggestions?

Since you are using a 7520, I would suggest that you try NextMail.
I use NextMail on my (non-Blackberry) phone. I have the one-touch direct-connect button set to my NextMail "Notes" direct-connect number. When I want to make a note, set a reminder, etc, while I'm driving, I send myself a voice note using NextMail. When I get back to my PC, I retrieve and play my NextMail notes. It works great for me!

NextMail is also handy for sending voice emails to your contacts at times when you don't want to type an email on your Blackberry. I believe they have a free trial.
