“Pat Tricks” - Learn Something Cool in Ten Minutes (LSCITM)


LG8300 phone tip about recording voice memos


            You can record voice memos from your LG8300 phone easily.  For instance, if you


·         Get an idea

·         Hear about a party, restaurant, concert, etc

·         Actually remember a girls name for a minute after you meet her and want to make sure you don’t forget it


and you want to record a memo for later, here’s what you do:


·         There is a button on the left hand side of your phone right under the volume buttons


§         You probably use it to shut off the ringer if you get a phone call and you want the phone to stop ringing

§         Or you use it to light up the phone so you can see the time


·         If you open your phone, and hold that button for over 2 seconds, the magic begins

·         The phone says “Press OK to start recording”

·         You can now record until you hit the OK button to STOP recording

·         The voice memo goes into your “My Sounds” directory

·         Here’s how to find the file

§         From the MENU button, i.e. the OK button after you hit END

·         Click left twice to get to GET IT NOW

·         Hit #1 to get to “Get Tunes & Tones”

·         Hit #5 to get to “My Sounds”

·         There will be a file with a name based on today’s date and time, so if it is October 4th, 2007 at 2:03 in the afternoon, the file will be called

o        1004071403 for 10/04/07 and 2:03 military time

·         If you look at the bottom of the screen,

o        the left button allows you to Play it back

§         note that you may have to turn up the volume to hear it

o        the OK key allows you to send it as an email

§         ask me if you want more info about this

o        the right button allows you Options, like Erasing it, or sending it to Pix Place


·         Note: the maximum voice memo size is 1 minute, but you can create as many as you want


·         Pretty cool, and in less than two minutes, right?
