Voice Recorder Question

I looked through the previous posts and didn't see anything about this, hopefully I didn't miss it.

 

My question is: is there a way to continue recording a voice note while the phone is closed. I have tried and can't seem to figure if it's possible or not. I would like to be able to use the BB as a voice/audio recorder and be able to close the phone and put it back in my pocket or desk and not have it open. Is there a way to keep recording, or an app to do this?

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance

Hello jmlentz,

 

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums :smileyhappy:

 

There is no setting to allow Voice Recording with the device closed at this time.

 

Cheers,

Re: Voice Recorder Question

The previous question was from almost a year ago, so I was wondering if there was ever an update?  If the flip phone is closed, will the voice recorder work?

Re: Voice Recorder Question

On a side note, how long can you voice record for?  How many minutes?

Re: Voice Recorder Question

No there apparently is no way to record with the cover flipped closed. As far as how long you can record for, I suppose that depends on the amount of memory on your memory card.

Re: Voice Recorder Question

Thanks for the reply.  I'm just now, trying to learn about all the functions on the phone.  I want to use the voice recorder for my class notes.  How do you know it's actually recording?  Is there an icon?
