Any way to save the voicemails on my iPhone to my macbook pro?

Problem: I have a lot of saved voicemails on my phone that I'd rather not delete. But my memory is getting full.

Is there a solution to this? I'm running 2.0 software.

Thanks!

You will need to jailbreak your iPhone, install SSH and copy the files off of ~/Library/Voicemail

Presumably you could record them. Headphone-out from the iPhone to line-in on the Mac. Use a simple audio recorder/editor (perhaps "Audacity") to save the sound files to disk.

My Mum wanted some messages taped and I was able to do it with Skype and Call Recorder from ecamm

Well, assuming they're also saved to t-mobiles voicemail service (and I admit I don't have an iPhone so I don't know if this is a good assumption) you can use something like gotvoice.com. Its free, downloads your voicemails to their online service, and then you can save each one there or on your computer.

Lifehacker, who are MeFi fans, posted a guide to the process this morning.
