Default Help with finding a phone recorder app

Looking for an app that records phone calls (both sides of the conversation). Turns on when I make a call or when someone calls me then turns off when the call is done.

I found multiple free ones on the market but most of them say they don't work with motorola phones.. then ones that dont say it I tried and all I get is static when I play it back. So it has to be something with motorola phones blocking all recording apps.

Anyone found an app that works with the razr to record calls? Or maybe found a way to hack the phone to allow recording?

I don't know of anything that will do this, but perhaps if you were rooted it might allow you to bypass whatever moto has in place to stop those apps from working?

That's the only thing I can think of.

Does Google Voice have an option for this?

Thumbs down Noise, But Not...

I'm looking for the same thing as you are, and as I guess many people are! I'm with you right there! This is the lamest thing Motorola has done with their phones, I think!

But that noise you're talking about is just noise (it appears to be a loop of a short burst picked somewhere from the sound you had intended to record), but it's not "static." Static is a noise that arises from random frequencies in an analog radio signal where there either is no signal being fed at all (and that's all you hear or/and see [as "snow" on analog TV]), or the signal is weak (and you hear and/or see that blended with the signal you're looking for).

<OffTopicDiatribe>

As far as I (and my Graduate level Digital Signal Processing text) know, there is no formal definition of "[radio] static". The most literal definition of a static noise would be "a noise that doesn't change" (WRT the input signal or time, depending on context). We usually talk about White Noise interference processes when talking about static, but that doesn't mean it's incorrect to refer to other effects as "static". Taking the "doesn't change with time/signal" definition of "static", what the OP is talking about is most definitely a static noise.

Of course White Noise signals are random signals (with unspecified distribution) with constant power spectrum equal to the variance. Or alternatively it can be defined as a random, uncorrelated signal. They are defined mathematically as a Noise vector with constant mean (usually assumed to be 0) and an autocorrelation matrix equal to the variance times the identity matrix.
A Gaussian signal is a random signal on the Normal (aka Gaussian) Distribution. So a Gaussian white noise is a Gaussian distributed White Noise Signal (or a Normally-distributed random, uncorrelated noise signal).

My point being, you shouldn't be unnecessarily pedantic about stuff you don't really know about. And you definitely shouldn't dredge up long dead threads to do it.

As far as GV being able to record calls. No, it can't.

I believe that the lack of a program to do what you want to do, that is record both sides of a cell phone conservation, is not available due to the legal aspects of consent and permission and various state privacy laws. But I've not researched it in a couple of years

I'd agree, tnstra. I believe in CA you have to have a warrant or permission to record, otherwise it's completely inadmissible.

I believe you mean completely illegal.

The laws are different for every state.

In Michigan ifs illegal to record phone calls without the other party knowing. Some states it only requires one party to know.

I would read up in your state laws to find out for sure, it yes I'm assuming that the lack of apps is because of the wide range of different laws.
