    Not possible on stock firmware.

    Yep. When you're talking, say hold on and then add a call. Call your voicemail. Once you hear the message beep go off then start talking again and anything said now will be recorded.

    haha thats funny. Very clever but it seems like a bit to much work. Why wouldn't apple release anything like that in un-JB'ed phones? Mostly every business I call these days tells me that the phone conversation will be recorded for whatever purposes. I am a business so why should I be able to do it??.............besides that, I am on a JB'ed phone so what is that app? =)

    Does it have restriction on how long the message is though to be recorded?
    Not sure but I think the amount of time your voice message length might vary per carrier.
    I think for AT&T its only up to 4 minutes.

    I have enhanced voicemail from Rogers and I'm allowed a maximum length of 35 minutes per voicemail.

    Has to do with privacy laws, and wiretapping, etc. Best bet is if you know you want to record, put it on speaker, crank up something like Garage Band, or something lighter, and record that way?

    Not sure I want to know why? Then I'm an accessory!

    Only 5 minutes? That's horrible. I've recorded a ton of messages before. 35 minutes is about the perfect length to do so. I have not yet been cut off while recording.

    Legality in a lot of areas prohibits this. I know the iPhone is an international phone, but it's made by a US company, they're not going to release an app or build in functionality that's legally questionable.

    ..than how come half the business' I call can do it? BTW I dont plan on using it in any weird way...was just curious. My phone company seems to tell me one thing then change their story next time I talk to them....quite often. I was thinking of keeping phone records of my calls with them....since they do of me I figure why not. It's to bad they wont play me back their recordings..then I wouldn't need to. Obviously they know they're wrong..

    They notify you that the call is being monitored. In the US, you can't do it unless you let the other party know the call is being recorded. Apple could be held partially liable if someone illegally recorded conversations. Just easier/safer to not allow it

    If you want to record a call, call the person you want to call, turn on the speakerphone, exit out of the phone app, open up voice memos, tap record and you're good to go

    Actually I'm pretty happy with that, can you imagine someone pocket calling you and leaving a 35 minute voicemail of them walking around?

    ...OK then I will tell them that their call is being monitored and recorded for my own purposes before we talk...I have nothing to hide. I'll make it fair

    Couldnt you start a call, then open up voice memos and record it that way, you would have to put on speaker phone thou :\
