Have to deal with someone who doesn't use email, and I need to record verbal details for future reference. I intend to use a landline, but not sure of the best way to record a phone call this way. So I may need to use a mobile with a voice recording app on it. I have an android phone, are there any good voice reocrding apps out there that will record both sides of the phone call well?

 

I used to have one for my old symbian nokia, but haven't had the need for one for my smart phone until now.

I have a "record call" button on my phone, using WanamLite ROM. There are dozens of "record my call" type android apps. Just test it in advance.

Set-up a 2talk account and enable call recording.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Same here..

I record all conversation as this makes it much easier to refer back to the conversation if I need to - eg: shopping lists, appointments etc. You can set them to be deleted after a period of time. If the conversation is important, you can star it and it won't be deleted. And you can also link it to dropbox for backup.

2talk will be the easiest. Make an 028 number, stick some cash on it and turn on remote dialtone for your mobile number and also turn on call recording.

Call into it from your mobile which probably has a crapload of unused minuites on it, then call out using the remote dialtone to the person.

You will then get an email with a call recording soon after you hang up (assuming you turned that option on too)

Just to keep things transparent be sure to notify the other party that a recording is in progress

Dosent need to legally. Long as one of the parties in the call is aware of the recording, thats fine. Its when a 3rd party is recording without announcing it, it gets into legal issues....

I have looked into and used these apps on cellphone.  Basically if your ROM supports microphone & speaker to recording they work amazingly well.  Otherwise you fallback to physical microphone picking up the audible noise.  IN this case the only option is to have your phone on speaker phone.  HI have had to do the speakerphone trick, and that worked reasonably well.

That is not true at all.

 

 

ACR app works fine in a stock ROM without root whatsoever on my samsung phones. The app directly records the audio from source.

Really, are you sure?  Interesting, and very good to know, as I have 2talk which was automatically set to record when I set it up, but I've often wondered if: 

a) it was legal to record someone else like this without notifying them
b) I could use said recordings if there was some dispute with what was said by phone (not thinking of anything specific here just  something I was generally curious about)


EDIT: Huh, looks like wikipedia says the same: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_recording_laws#New_Zealand and that references the Crimes Act (http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1961/0043/latest/DLM329814.html) which appears to say the same. Very good to know.

I said "if your ROM supports it".  This includes stock Roms like yours.  Mine (stock) does not, was just passing on my experience...

Wow!  This was my biggest gripe with call recorders!  Just downloaded ACR now and went round in circles with telecom automated support to test it and it works like a charm!





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Yep crimes act lets us record conversations as long as we are party to them. We are not allowed to set up a recorder without informing the people being recorded.

As for the OP's question, as many have said just download an app to do it. Our CRM app does it for us when it recognizes a caller as a contact in the CRM.

I wonder how that effects the legality of a recording when someone is using the 2talk service of someone else? Like hacked details off insecure ipphone or whatever? I always had the intention of putting them on SoundCloud of it ever happened.
