    Hi,
    I have an old Nextel i686 phone, Can't use it for a phone anymore but the camera and camcorder work. I can
    also download them to my computer. The problem is I want to download the voice recorder to win 8.1. I am looking for a program that will convert AMR files so I can run them on my Toshiba satellite. My computer says
    that Real player and Freeviewer will work but they seem to want to much info from me or they want me to download new drivers. I'm looking for something simple to use. At worst I can play the phone into my computer
    mic and record it for playback that way.

    Thx

    Ok , I found it , thanks again. One last question , I'm running this on win 7 , the instructions on their
    web site only lists up to win 7. I have win 8.1 at home, think it will work on that?

    Almost certainly - sounds like a "suck it and see job!"

    If you cannot install or launch suitable softeware, why not try some online application? By utilizing this Converter, you can also convert the AMR files to compatible format for you Toshiba computer.

    I use switch for all my music files... changing any sound files works best when you take it back to a wave file first then into mp3, 4 or whatever.
