is there a program that records your phone conversations?

    Just curious really. Like if you call somsone it would store it somewhere in a call log akin to the visual voicemal. It could be neat if you totally forget when a deadline is, or where someone said their address was and you didnt write it down.

    Not without jailbreaking. And maybe not even with jailbreaking.

    You won't find it on the Apple store any time soon, as it would have to run along side the phone app, and Apple forbids that.

    BUT, if it ever did become available, it should be called Nixon. :D

    I've always thought this was the most plain use for a recorder on a phone, and yet no phone on the market has ever had this capability.

    I would imagine that being due to wiretapping laws varying state to state, etc

    Wiretapping, as you've described within this thread is a violation of Title 18 United States Code SS.2510 (Title 18, U.S.C.SS.2510). So, it's a federal statute in the United States.

    had a software on my old treo that did that. I used it when speaking with customer service as most of them are recording you anyway, but I let them know and they become uneasy.

    I had exactly that on all my various Palm Treo phones for years. It was called mVoice. 3rd party app of course but it worked great. That is the 1 advantage to an "open" system.

    That depends on your State. In MANY states only 1 party has to know they are being recorded. Like here in NJ. It's perfectly legal.

    If it's a federal statue, then it overrides any state law.

    my SE w810i had this ability, along with my nextel phones.

    It can be very useful, especially if you have to take someone to court and they say one thing and then deny it then. I had this experience, but thankfully all worked out, yet it wouldve been nice if I recorded them to make things more legit.

    Yeah there is. Contact your government. Maybe if you ask nicely they'll share some things from their database.

    States may also enact wiretap statutes, but they must avoid preemption, whereas States may only adopt more stringent standards than required under Federal law, but not less restrictive.

    Just about every Sony Ericsson phone has this feature so I assume other phones do to, Nokia (certainly Symbian) etc.

    Can you not read? He said he wants to record telephone conversations and review them in an interface similar to Visual Voicemail like many other phones do.
