Do you have another iDevice? What I'm thinking is that you can start the voice Memos program on another device, play the voicemail from the 3GS (speakerphone) and record it.
I've done something similar and it works quite well.

Diskaid will allow you to copy the voicemail messages to your computer. The sound quality is excellent since it's a direct transfer of the original file.

I've done that as well using 2 LG Chocolate phones. Worked pretty good.

I've done it that way as well, but the sound quality isn't very good when compared to a direct transfer. I'd wouldn't skimp on quality if it was something as important as what the OP is trying to save.

You're absolutely right. I was going back to before I even had a PC or smartphone, which wasn't that long ago.
