Wow, what started just as a little tool for my own personal use is now being used by hundreds of people on a daily basis. I’m glad this is helping some other folks as well.
Number of voice mails converted so far:
Most people seem to have figured out how to configure their email / voice mail systems to send messages through the responder, but let me know in the comments if you have trouble getting it to work.
Per popular demand I added a NEW feature to the existing conversion service that now allows you to automatically convert your voice mails. Previously you had to manually forward the email containing the wav attachment to wav2mp3_at_droidstory_dot_com to get a message emailed back with the converted mp3 file attached. If you receive a lot of voice mails that can be a hassle.
If your current phone system allows you to forward voice mails via email, simply change your existing email address to the following new format (here is an example):
All you have to do is basically change the @ symbol in your email address to # and add @droidstory.com to the end.
The old manually method of forwarding voice (e)mails to wav2mp3_at_droidstory_dot_com still works too, or you can just use the new address format if you want the reply sent somewhere else.
And the best part is: Unlike similar services, there is still no setup or registration required.
And it works for iPhones too.
Use the comment section to report any problems or if you need any setup help. Enjoy!

Our company phone system allows me to forward voice mails as file attachments. Unfortunately, playing the WAV files on my Android phone doesn’t work. There are some apps in the market that allow you to play the different wav-file formats, but I decided it wasn’t worth buying/installing yet another app for the few times I needed this feature. Instead, I enabled a simple conversion-mail-back service on the DroidStory server.
If you ever need a quick conversion of a voice mail wav file to mp3, simply forward your email containing the attachment to wav2mp3_at_droidstory_dot_com and you’ll get a MP3 file mailed back.
That’s it, no registration or setup required. Enjoy!
