    How do you record both sides of a phone conversation? Thanks.

    Seems to be a wealth of options in the Play Store "phone call recorder". As a rooted user, the option to record phone calls is right there on the dialer screen for me.

    The option to record is on the lower left of the dial pad on mine and I'm not rooted.

    I don't seem to have that option on mine. Canada variant, non-rooted. Can you post a screen shot of how and where it looks?

    That's looks like a voice mail button, not a phone call recorder ...

    You are right. I had always just pressed and held the 1 button to access voicemail.
    This is a lot quicker.

    I've been using the ACR program (Auto Call Record) found in the app store. I've used it for over a year now and love it! We have our own business and companies call us to book jobs. I'm the one they call. It's no problem if I can't write the information down at the moment because ACR is recording the conversation Or if someone calls with job details for my husband I don't have to worry about getting something wrong when I relay it to him. I have it set to record all calls and at the end of the call a box pops up asking me if I want to save the call. HANDY little app! No ads.

    they vary from state to state.

    What do you plan on doing with the recordings? If you're only using them to reference from later (and then deleting them when you don't need them), then I don't see there being a problem.

    Since you use it for business purposes do you preface it with the usual disclaimer about using it for training purposes?

    Mostly to be used so when I place or receive a call to one of my grown children
    my wife will not get pissed off because she didn't hear the conversation.

    Now if I can figure how to store them on my SD card. According to this pop up I can't. It mentions KiKat but I'm on Lollipop and it supposedly relaxed the write to SD somewhat. I looked under ARC's permissions and it should be able to. Any ideas that doesn't involve rooting.

    Contact ACR. They've always been very helpful when I had questions.
    I just tried saving to the SD card and got the same error message as you.

    Call Recorder from Play. You may have to play with the settings.

    Maybe I can leave them on the device storage. Looks like about 100kb per minute. That should be around 6MB per hour. I will be saving only important calls and deleting the general BS ones. So it shouldn't be a problem.

    The latest update gave a way to do what I wanted to default to SD card.
