Works fine for me. I just use it to create simple voice notes.

Its a great utility and has made me fall in love with my BB PEarl once again. Easy-to-use, has all the required functionality and is quick.

They have a free trial, but overall, it seems to be a very well executed program. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't allow fast forward or rewind on the BB. You can email the notes and do play them on your computer, which I like. I don't sync all that often and transferring files via sync would not be a great option for me.

As far as the quality of the recording, they are excellent and do not seem to be overly large files, (approximately 1 mb per 10 minutes).

I have the side convenience (ptt) key set to activate VR+, and this makes it very convenient to access.

I would give the free trial a go, and see if it meets your needs.

I tried it and it worked well but I dont need this feature enough to pay for it.

When I need to record something I just use the free Voice Note program that came with my Pearl and save as Draft or send as Email depending on what I need it for.

comparing with Voice Note, VR+ sends the recording in MP3 so it can be played back on ANY mp3 compatible device, that is definitely good.

There is a way to send the recorded note as email and NOT MMS, I am not subscribed to the MMS service, thanks

Yes, it lets you e-mail them and it converts them to mp3. Great program

Hi!

How can you "save as Draft" with the built in Voice Note? I've got only one option except quit and throw away the note - it's "send as MMS". Did I miss something here?

Is there a chance that T-Mobile blocked the saving of notes so the only way to get them is to use the MMS service?

Any ideas?

Greetings from Germany
