Hello,

I'm looking for a way to record a voicemail off my smartphone onto my PC.  I think maybe if I plug the phone into my PC speakers, play the VM and use a recording program, I could do it that way, but I'm not sure exactly what kind of cable, which software, or really, the best way to do this.

So basically I am looking for the best method for doing this, and what the appropriate cords/software will be.  thanks!

What's the make/model on your smartphone?  Does it have a headphone (3.5mm) jack?  If so, you'll simply need a 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male stereo cable.  One end goes into your smartphone and the other into the input/line-in jack on your motherboard/audio card.  If you don't have a separate audio input jack on your PC, the microphone jack may work as well.  You could use Windows Sound Recorder to record the audio, no need for specialized 3rd party software.
