Here's what I would like to do, if you know of a clever way to pull this off please let me know.
I need to access voicemail files (.arm) on my iPhone. It is not currently jailbroken. To complicate matters I upgraded my text plan tonight. Unknown to me at the time when they upgrade your text plan it causes you to have to reactivate your voicemail. So upgrading my text plan caused me to lose all of my voicemails.
My hope is that the .arm files are still on the filesystem. The reason I am even spending the effort to find a way to retrieve them is because a few of these voicemails are very important to me and I was going to record them to my computer this weekend to save them.
It's my understanding that using any of the jailbreak apps causes a full restore of the phone and therefore would erase the existing data, including the .arm files I am trying to retrieve.
I found an application called iPhoneBrowser, though it crashes each time I run it. I tried several versions. Plus I believe it will not get me access to the areas of the filesystem that I need since my phone is not already jailbroken.
Is there a clever way to access the filesystem or somehow find and transfer the voicemail files?
Note: I have an iPhone 2.5G with OS version 3.0.
