Most voicemail messages are pretty forgettable. But occasionally, a voicemail can become a treasured memory if you save it.

And saving such messages is easier than you probably think. The rules are similar for most cellphones, according to a recent story in the Washington Post.

For your iPhone, open the Phone app and choose “Voicemail.” Once you locate a voicemail you want to save, click it and tap the “share” icon. You can then send a copy of the voice mail using your email or a service such as Apple’s AirDrop or iCloud Drive.

For your Android, the process might vary slightly from phone to phone. But in general, you should be able to open the Phone app and choose “Voicemail,” or go directly to the Voicemail app. Then, find the voicemail you want to save and tap the “share” icon. You can then send a copy of the voicemail using your email or a service such as Google Drive.

That is all there is to digitally preserve a memory for a lifetime.
