- As stated above, it's illegal in just about every state unless you get the other person's permission. Google Voice can do this, but it let's the other party know.

- I use the paid version of InCall Recorder. It works fine on my Galaxy Note 1 and the beauty of it is that it stores the calls in Dropbox by folder name of the person you chat with.
What I am looking for is I have Nexus 7 (original) and have VOIP (Vonage) and would like to record calls on that when I make one but have nad no look finding one so any suggestions/help would be appreciated. O and if you wonder why I would like to use my Nexus for phone calls well it is on my desk and it is easy to have hands free. Hopefully this will be a stop gap measure until the Galaxy Tab 8 T311 is released in the U K as that has a slot for a sim card to send/receive calls.12-10-2013 07:59 AM
- Please note: While different states view recording differently most do allow it under certain circumstances.
Most recording laws are there to guard against planting "bugs". Recording conversations is common and most office phone systems now include a "record" button to capture a conversation as do many home systems. I use mine legally all the time to recall conversations and make sure nothing gets lost between the cracks of memory.
Check you state laws, but in most cases having a phone app to record conversations your taking part in is legal.06-03-2014 04:37 PM
"but in most cases having a phone app to record conversations your taking part in is legal. "
Actually, that has nothing to do with cell phones. According to the FCC, who have sole authority over them, cell phones ARE NOT TELEPHONES they are radios.
States usually have "wiretapping" laws, which apply to a third party secretly recording a wired telephone call or wired telegraph. Wiretapping by definition is not possible on radios, only on wired lines. So the vast majority (if not all) state laws apply differently to cell phones, which legally are not phones. (They're just radios that are patched into the telephone system.)
The bottom line is that someone in the US is instigating a great deal of FUD and somehow disabling Android's native recording abilities. Bear in mind, the cell phone companies have no problem selling phones that clandestinely record video--and that's illegal almost everywhere. Cell phones are being used for locker room videos, upskirt videos, all sorts of illegal uses and the carriers see no problem with allowing that, when they could easily disable it, or force the phones to show a red light, etc.
So all the "illegal to record" business? FUD. It is 90% incorrect and someone with an agenda is behind it all. Anyone who can figure out who, gets a big prize.

Each state has their own definitions of what a "telephone" is. But the FCC, who has the sole authority over radio equipment by Congressional decree, has stated that cell phones are NOT PHONES, they ARE RADIOS and as such they are totally exempt from all telephonic and telegraphic wiretap laws, which simply do not apply to radios and radio transmissions.
Better to ask, who or what has the power and ability to remove the Android code necessary to allow simple call recording. The Android OS allows the call audio streams to be redirected anywhere. That might prevent them from being surreptitiously directed to a "bug", because the audio stream was no longer what the bug expected.
So...there may very well be a backdoor that allows bugging of all Android phones. And whoever coded the backdoor, may have disabled the native Android code to ensure it doesn't allow the backdoor being bypassed or locked out.
Paranoia? Only if you can figure out a better reason why a different player has removed code from basically every Android phone on the US market--and only on the US market.
Wiretap laws? Fuggedaboudit. That's FUD from the phone company. If the phone company was protecting you from anything, they'd have to disable the video recording features as well, to prevent clandestine locker room and upskirt videos. THAT'S illegal in almost every state, and your cellular companies allow it without blinking an eye.
State and federal laws have no role in why the code has been removed.08-13-2014 01:50 PM
- I have the HTC One m8 and have been able to record conversations on an HTC for the first time. I've been using a program called ACR and it's worked flawlessly. Try the free version first, if you update to the full version, you can upload your conversations to your cloud drive.
Good Luck!12-24-2014 04:20 PM
- Call Recording depends on Android version the mobile is having than the device. Some android version might allow 2 side voice recording, and an upgrade in OS might make it stop recording the other side voice (You will have to use speaker mode in that case).

- "Call Recording depends on Android version the mobile is having than the device."
Yes and no.
The Android OSes (since at least 4.x) have included, by default, a subroutine which allows the telephone audio streams to be sent to any "device", i.e. the speaker, the earbud, Bluetooth, or a file.
That subroutine, that library component, has been removed from almost all phones on the US market over the past 5+ years. So you could say the problem is specific to the phones--but the same exact phones, used with the same exact UNMODIFIED OS overseas, work perfectly well out of the box.
The carriers and the phone makers each say "the other guy did it" so obviously, there is some type of major lying going on, for no apparently good reason. This only affects the *modified* OS in US-market phones of all sorts. And such modification (removing core code from the OS) is also against the terms of the Android license, it is grounds for Google to revoke permission to use the OS. So even curiouser, because Google is apparently supporting and aiding someone who is intentionally blocking call recording on US-market phones.
Phones sold in the EU, Japan, even China and Korea, have no such problem.
This has got nothing to do with spyware. Recording your own calls is perfectly legal, according to the FCC, and their rulings take precedence over any and all state or territorial laws in the US. A cell phone is a radio, not a telephone, under federal law and FCC confirmation.
Someone is tampering with the US-market phones. Don't let nonsense about wiretaps and spyware distract you from that. Cell phones also can be used for illegal surreptitious video recording and yet, no one makes a cell phone that has a blinking red light to warn people it is recording video, do they? So much for concerns about the laws.
Worry more about who gains from tampering with the OS in your phone, and why the carriers and makers all are supporting this.03-28-2016 03:41 PM
- regarding whether it is a felony to record call.. the law is, as long as one person is aware that the call is being recorded, it is legal. It would be illegal for someone to record two or more other person's conversation without their knowledge or consent. I work as a Director in a 911 center, all of our calls are recorded and we do not have an announcement advising they are because it is not illegal.06-29-2016 04:34 PM
