Is theres a way to have an app or something to have the ability to record the phone calls and keep them on the iPhone?

From what I understand this gets into the area of wiretapping laws. In the USA, you could do this but the laws require that an audible beep sounds at specific intervals to let all parties know that the call is being recorded.

You will need to jailbreak.

This is actually down to local laws. In some locales, only one consenting party is necessary for legal recording.

It is a shame that an app like that is not available on the store. Being able to save the recorded file locally is how it should be, instead of going through a service, which people should never do, in my opinion, especially if one cares about security and privacy.

And you are correct about variances in local and state laws. Most of them are one-way consent.

I agree, it is a shame. Call Recorder though, is a perfect example of why I jailbreak. Useful apps like this are possible because of that.
