Default reliable app to record phone conversations

Hi,

I have a VM Optimus V with 2.2.1 android on it. I've been looking for an app I can use to record phone conversations both incoming and outgoing calls. I tried "record my call" but it says the device is not supported.

I've seen where other people have suggested just using the voice recorder that came bundled but I don't see anything like that in the apps list. There is just voice dial and google voice neither of which seem like they can be used for this purpose.

I don't mind paying a couple bucks for it so long as it works reliably and is supported on this device. I just want to make sure it is before paying for it.

Thanks!!

Before you think about recording phone conversations, you should check out federal and state laws first. Some states require by law (and perhaps some federal laws) that you let the person know right at the beginning of the conversation that they are being recorded, some states require that both parties consent, some states make it completely illegal, and some states are still debating the issues.

I live in a single party consent state and have definite need to record a call, and soon, an antagonistic auto insurance company.

A good app for that would be Tape-a-talk. It's a free android app available in the Market. The sound quality is great and you can tape for as long as you'd like.

That's not good. I hope you get things worked out, and catch the bastages who wronged you.

Thanks, I tried this one, but it seems like it only records what is heard by the external mic. If I have the call on speaker phone it sounds reasonable I guess. But if the call is made normally the other person's voice is really feeble because it's just the small amount that reverberates into the mic. If I can't find a better one, I'll have to make do with this though.

Wow, did this run for you on an optimus V? I just installed it and tried calls using all four recording formats. It was unbelievably bad, garbled. Sounded like some alien language or something. The only one that sounded remotely accurate was wav format but when it played back it was at like 1/10 normal speed. I do like the triggering methods and configurability of it but it just doesn't seem workable.

I am looking for reliable recording app too! Why is this so hard for someone to create since there have been viruses/trojans discovered that allow hackers to do this without you knowing? We just need a user configurable trojan... I mean app!

It did work for me but that was months ago and updates may have pushed it above the system has available.

Edit...didn't see that this was in a specific device forum. Found it on a google search and assumed it was in the app forum. Btw, here is a site with a chart regarding consent.

There are NO authorized apps to record phone calls as the law is different from state to state...if you want to record phone calls the only way I know to accomplish this is via google voice, just press 4 to start recording.... as far as cydia apps you might want to post in the hacks section

This is the LG Optimus V phone forum. The members over at the Droid4 forum will be able to answer your questions a whole lot better then members of the LG Optimus V forum will. Don't you think? There are enough things different about the two phones you might not get the best advice for your phone here.
