    Hi, Anyone found how to record voice messages using Treo? I think it should be a matter of having the right application

    I'm not aware of any PalmOS voice recording software independent of add-on hardware. I've previously heard speculation that the relatively "wimpy" Dragonball CPU doesn't have the horsepower to run a codec to digitize voice... making a voice recording technically "challenging" (or impossible)...

    Yes, I want this too, but think it's too much to hope for...

    there's always voicemail. I don't know of any GSm services that don't include basic voicemail, and often that means simple voice message recording if you want. Sure, it takes a minute or two to call the voicemail number and press the right button sequence to record your message to yourself, but if it's REALLY that important. ;-)
    Then again, I'm guessing the whole point is to be able to *quickly* record a voice note, like you can on a Handera or PocketPC (shudder).

    As for the processor speed, it's not a problem UNLESS you want to compress the audio to save RAM. the 33mhz CPU in the Treo is plenty fast enough to record low-quality audio and play it back. The problem is that such audio would take up more RAM than most people are ready to spend. The Handera works ok because it can save the voice notes directly to the CF or SD cards if you want it to. The trick would be to hack the Treo such that WAV audio (which the CPU can handle) is played through the phone speaker rather than the piezo (palm) speaker. I don't think that can be done, though.

    My search found this three year-old thread (what luck, eh? )......

    So guys, will my NEW 2005 Verizon Treo 650 be able to "quickly record a voice note" as GregGaub mentioned above?

    not sure if it will come with voice memo app out of the box, but if it doesn't, you can certainly find 3rd party apps that will do it. There are ways to record your voice in the system, such as adding a voice clip to a photo, or recording a new sound for the sound manager, but there's no built-in voice memo app... at least not on my unlocked GSM 650.

    Then again, it's been a while since I've hung out here, and I'm betting someone else will chime in with much better information.

    Check out CallRec - use it every day for recording voice notes (especially when driving, instead of writing) and for recording both sides of phone conversations instead of taking notes.

    Yep.......Greg, you're a doggon psychic.

    Thanks Franko515, lenpra,........Sound Rec appears to be the answer I was looking for.

    So... amazingly, I'm trying to find a way to record sounds (for alarms and ringtones) THAT I'VE USED BEFORE and can't figure out how I did it.

    Seriously, I've got like 4 little (probably wav) files on the treo 650 that I recorded, on the fly, to make into individual ringtones for my favorites buttons. HOW DID I DO THAT? anyone know what I'm talking about?
