    OK, I had the i80 which had the voice recorder as a menu option, and I used
    it a lot, just a few button clicks. Now I have the i58sr, better-built, much
    better battery life, but voice recorder is no longer an option. They do have
    a vReminder which you can get as a java app, but by the time you access it,
    well, it just takes a lot longer (especially when you're driving, the old
    one I could do w/out looking, this one requires many more keystrokes).
    Maybe I'll get used to it, I don't know, but I sure wish that I had the
    voice record option on the i58sr that I had on the 80. Maybe I'll just
    return it for another phone, though I like the gps capability and the fact
    that it's a much more solid phone (not as afraid to drop)! I would even pay
    them the $7 extra if I could have the same feature, but vReminders is not
    the same as the old voice record. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    If you want something high-powered, try http://nextmail.com/

    You register, get a special Direct Connect address and your set to go.
    The only drawback is you need to go to a computer with audio to
    retreive your messages. I use it to email voice notes to myself
    during the day and it is slick. I can dictate messages up to 5
    minutes long - as many as I want.

    Make that "a computer with Windows Media Player". *Morons*. But then,
    anyone who could find a use for that pretty useless looking service would
    probably be someone who thinks Windows is a pretty neat idea. Except for
    exactly what you're using it for.

    Now, give me an Internet program *that is a Nextel radio *console* -- that's
    something I'd pay cash for.

    No, but the page *does* say that you need WMP plugins to play the files.

    As far as I can see, other than note-taking, it's a service not suited to
    single-user operation. Now, if you ran a gas-price website, and publicized
    your NextMail DCID on the site, and people used it to report prices to you,
    or something like that, yeah...

    But for the market they appear to be targeting? Doesn't seem real useful to
    me...

    I am a consultant for all types of wireless services. I use it to
    send myself notes when I am driving (and in Seattle you get stuck in
    traffic a lot). I have other people I work with that I have set up
    with DCIDs (you can set up something like 30) and I send them voice
    notes as well. I don't have to fill up their voice mail and I can
    leave detailed messages up to 5 minutes. If I am working with a
    customer on a large project I will set them up as well.

    I have customers that are in construction, for example, and they send
    in "punch lists" to the office to be transcribed. I work with
    in-field wholesale sales companies that enter orders using it. I
    guess you have to think outside the box to see it's value, but I
    wouldn't be without it. It saves me many $$$ each day.

    You can set up *more than one target/DCID* for your $60 a year? Ok, they
    just got useful.

    No, if you can have more than one destination, I can see it quite handily.

    Nice if their *sales material* bothered to explain that...

    You are right - they don't put tat info on the main site fro some
    reason. Here is what I got off the "help" file from my account page:

    "There are two types of recipients, Individuals and Groups. The
    maximum total number of Individual and Group Recipients is 30. Each
    Group may contain up to 50 Group Members, each with a unique Email
    address."

    And all that's included for your $60 a year, huh? That becomes
    useful, yes. Pretty damned spiffy actually, *if* they encode the
    audio attachments in a fashion I can deal with. Any chance you could
    send yourself some mail and forward it to me so I can get out the
    hammer and tongs?
