    You should see a voice notes icon....
    You can also send a voice note via BB Messenger - It is an option in the menu there when you have a chat open with someone.

    On mine the icon looks like a piece of paper with a microphone.

    Don't have that icon. I wonder if I missed it as an option during the installation of 4.2.

    In Device Manager, do you see it as one of your applications that you can check or uncheck? If so, what is it called?

    I don't have it either- 8700c
    but I did check the java directory of the loader files directory (on my pc) and there it is - voice notes cod...but it does not show up anywhere as an accessible application...

    checked on my bb- checked the modules under 4.2 core applications and it did load net_rim_bb_voicenotes.....

    it may be a carrier enabled thing within blackberry.xml - I checked the chinese version and voicenotes was only enabled under the vodaphone fileset. I also checked the Telefonica version and it seemed to be only enabled under the verizon fileset.

    I am by no means an expert on this file - reading or hacking it so if someone can help or correct me I would appreciate it.

    I believe voicenotes is only available for 8700G and PTT is for 8700C, anybody can send me the ALX file, I might be able to modify the file to enable voicenotes.

    BTW I enable the PPT on my G, it really does nothing and just an extra icon, tmobile have no PTT service, when I click on it, it just try to connect for service.

    Just did the upgrade from the ATT web site and can't find it either. I don't see the icon anywhere and no option to add it in App loader. This app was one of the reasons I wanted the upgrade. I am always in the car and it's os much easier to record a quick note to play back when you are driving.

    I also do not have this Icon on my 8700c. I have the latest OS too. Anyone know how to access this?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~a quick question on the voice notes app. Is there a way to increase the volume on the application? I feel like I have to scream into it just so that it is loud enough for others to hear when I send them to others.
