Best way to archive voicemail from Verizon Wireless?

I'm switching away from Verizon Wireless, but I have a couple voicemails saved under my account that have some of my daughter's first words that I'd like to save as audio files. I have a feature phone without visual voicemail. My thinking right now is to call my voicemail from a Skype session with recording enabled. Is that the best way? I couldn't find any other services for this.

Have you tried calling them? Apparently this is the kind of thing that customer service people at phone companies _like_ doing.

Have you ever registered a My Verizon account? You might be able to retrieve the recording through there. Or, be able to forward the recording to an email account.

I did call customer service. They pointed me at this company which costs a few doubloons.

You could use the headphone jack on your phone to plug audio into a computer and record it with Audacity or similar. I've done that in the past with Pro Tools and it works great.

Yeah, wish I had thought of that before re-upping my Skype credit. Oops.
