Default Any Blackberries have a Voice Memo feature?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I was wondering if there were any Blackberry models (either existing or upcoming) that have a voice memo feature? I've gotten conflicting answers from salespeople on this. I want to switch to BB, but I use this feature A LOT on my current phone and it would be tough to go without it.

Thanks in advance,

Define further- you want to send voice memos? Or just keep them on your handset ("Note to self...")?

You can certainly send MMS messages. There's a "Send Voice Note" option on my 8100. But I don't think there's a (default/preinstalled) voice memo option. The "Send Voice Note" feature only lets you record a note then either send or discard it. I suppose you could send it to yourself, but that would be silly.

Hi,

Yeah, to elaborate -- what I mean is a "note to self" type feature. I program that I can open from the menu, click record, talk, and save and rename on the handheld. I have a Motorola Q, and having this voice memo functionality is one of the few things I like about it. I guess I'm just wondering if the BB has a similar program (I wouldn't want to send a MMS everytime -- that would just be annoying).

The Blackberry 8100 Pearl have a Voice Memo that you can use to send voice messages to other people. That's all it does believe it or not.

And now just recently we have this for the 8100...
