 Cell phone audio out to PC audio in via headset?
I'd like to do a little project to archive old voice mail messages from my cell phone to PC audio (.mp3) files. I'd like to be able to do it (a) cheaply, and (b)effectively, so I need some sort of circuit, possibly with an amplifier, to enable the conversion. I'm reasonably comfortable with a soldering iron, but I'm not a pro. Suggestions welcome, I'm not a frequent visitor, so please copy to email as well.

Thanks in advance!

Dear Jonathan,

I don't think you will have too much of a problem doing this providing your cell has a earphone/headset jack. I don't think you will need an amp or any circuitry other then making up a patch cord to go from the headset to the microphone input of your PC. If anything the level may be to high but you should be able to adjust it with the volumn control on the cellphone.

Take a look at this forum for a thread on this subject:
