    Default How do I record my telephone calls?

    I'm in a bit of a harassment situation right now and I want to record my phone calls. I would like to record them all, outgoing and incoming automatically if possible.
    Any advise on doing this? This is not illegal as long as one person in the phone conversation knows the call is being recorded. That would be me.
    Thanks,
    Rob

    Record them without the other party knowing? Is that legal?

    apparently it is

    Recording Phone Calls and Conversations | Digital Media Law Project

    Who must give permission to record a telephone or in-person conversation?

    Federal law permits recording telephone calls and in-person conversations with the consent of at least one of the parties. See 18 U.S.C. 2511(2)(d). This is called a "one-party consent" law. Under a one-party consent law, you can record a phone call or conversation so long as you are a party to the conversation. Furthermore, if you are not a party to the conversation, a "one-party consent" law will allow you to record the conversation or phone call so long as your source consents and has full knowledge that the communication will be recorded.

    so basically you cant record 2 other people talking unless one of them knows and approves of it but you can record any call you are part of

    Thanks for your trouble but I can go to Play and search for apps.
    I was wanting to know if there was a feature in the Note II to do this or maybe someone had a suggestion for an app they've used and liked.
    Thanks again,
    Rob

    No, I don't think the phones do this sort of nefarious thing by themselves. Please forgive, we do get many a visitor that do not search the Play store for themselves. Perhaps one of our co-conspirators has indeed had some experience with an app that worked well.

    I decided to try "Call Recorder" free version.
    Briefly, someone has been making harassing phone calls to me and has been told to stop. I blocked calls coming from that person's phone but they have used other phones to call me.
    I am expecting a threat anytime and a recording of the threat may help me get a restraining order and possibly an arrest and prosecution.
    Nobody should take these things lightly these days.
    And it is legal to record phone conversations as long as one person in the conversation knows a recording is being made.
    Thanks for the help. I'll let you know how the app works for me. If it works well, I'll pay for the Pro version.

    Put the calls on speakerphone, record both with the built-in voice recorder. Definitely not private.

    If you put the call on speakerphone it should give you an option to record.

    There are recorders that would work perfect. You put in an ear piece and put the phone up to it. It records you And the person on the line. Not that expensive either.

    "Call Recorder" app works great. All I had to do was change the AUDIO SOURCE from "Phone Line" to "Mic". All calls incoming and outgoing are fully recorded even one that lasted about an hour.
    Thanks for the help,

    Some of the custom ROMs have this as an option. I'm currently running Beans Build 22 and I have this available. Another reason to flash custom, if you don't already

    Depends on the states that the parties to the call are in. Remember Linda Tripp?

    Some states, Florida and California for instance as well as several other states, are all party consent states and if any of the parties are in one of those states, you could be charged with a crime in those states even if you never set foot in those states if you record their voice without informing them you are so doing.

    Not in my state it isn't. You really need to know the laws of the state that all parties to the call are in at the time the call is conducted.

    there are state laws on this, too. In California for instance, it is an all party consent state and if you record a call with someone who is physically in California at the time of the call and do not inform them you are so doing, you have committed a crime in California and are subject to extradition if California were to charge you with the crime.
