Default phone call recorder

Hi
Is there a way to record phone calls on the Droid?
Or do/can you use a market app for this? I searched "call recorder" in the market & there wasn't much and reviews were not great. Anyone know of any other ways?
Thanks

I use google voice for everything on my droid. Calls, voicemails, sms, and all the other features.

Here is how you record with google voice.
Calls : Recording phone calls - Google Voice Help

FYI, if you make and receive calls using Google Voice, you can record calls through that service.

@Carl C - well, you could move to someplace with a better climate, say San Diego, CA, USA ;-)

Personally, I do NOT make outgoing calls through Google Voice and only a fraction of my incoming calls come in that way. But it is a slick feature. Do other VOIP-based services offer call recording? Could you use any of those?

I'm looking for a phone recorder app also. Google voice recording won't cut it cause I want to be able to record my outgong calls, not just incoming from Google voice.

if you are a google voice customer, you can configure all outgoing calls to go through google voice if you want. people dial me inbound on my GV number, so dialing out with GV is great for me.

So besides Google voice there is no other app that can record calls?

What about livo pro recorder on speakerphone?

I am an app downloading/installing/testing FREAK. I have searched high & low, and I haven't been able to find an app on the market yet that can record a call. This is the only feature that I feel is "missing" on my DROID.

The last I heard was that GoogleVoice only lets you record incoming calls.
I have yet to succeed on getting the outgoing to work (if I am missing some stupid tiny bit, is it just that I have to start the calls with Google Voice to use the "4" to record?).

In regards to recording calls, I have used one or two apps (one being vrecorder) where when I set it to record the call, it states that this function has been disabled by the phone itself. I cannot find the information before, but I ran across a post about that the Droid will not let you record calls.

I have no idea why, but I think we need a firmware/update fix first before we worry about an application to record the calls without Google Voice.

I have searched high and low & cannot figure out how to record. Would rooting the droid allow access to recording phone conversations?

Sorry, but no. Rooting does not give you this capability. Currently, Google Voice is the only solution.

Make or take the call you want to record on blue tooth (car) or on speaker and get a portable voice recorder.

It is kinda lame that there is no real option (aside from GV) to record calls in progress, even my old LG dumbphone had this feature. It comes in real handy when you're calling a business and want to end service or make changes, then you both have a copy of the conversation for proof. Just make sure you tell them up front so everything is legal.. blah blah

All someone really needs to do is take a quality recording app and hack it so it includes the speaker. Then you could include recordings in your recordings. Joe would have a tiny mixing studio in his hand!

I installed vRecorder on my Droid, and when I ask it to record a call, it states "This application is Android 2.0 compatible but the Droid artifically disables incall recording".

Makes me think there is a firmware or other switch specifically in the Droid itself that is causing this problem.
I would love to know if anyone finds the fix...especially if it does not involve rooting as I just do not have the time to make sure it is done correctly and thoroughly currently

I would imagine it is disabled because it is illegal to record the call unless the other party consents and the great majority of people who use this WON"T be asking for consent before recording a convo. It is a serious charge to do this, my old boss almost got sent to prison for doing it about a year ago.

I believe that the laws on recording phone calls vary by state. I used to work for the state of Iowa and our legal department explained it that in Iowa, you could record a call as long as one party consents to being recorded.

Here is something I found on it.
The U.S. federal law allows recording of phone calls and other electronic communications with the consent of at least one party to the call. A majority of the states and territories have adopted wiretapping statutes based on the federal law, although most have also extended the law to cover in-person conversations. 38 states and the D.C. permit recording telephone conversations to which they are a party without informing the other parties that they are doing so.
12 states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington.
It is illegal under all jurisdictions to record calls in which one is not a party.

While laws do vary from state to state, in most areas there are exceptions. For example, if you have a Restraining Order against someone, then you can record any and all violations of that order without notifing the caller (check your local laws). Victims of domestic violence use these recordings to prove harassment and threats.

Disabling the recorder because it might be used unlawfully is just sad. The GPS, the camera, and the phone itself could all be used in illegal ways.

I would just like to have recording capabilities to be able to take "notes" at times when I can't write it down. Having the app announce that recording has started/stopped covers the legality.

Question looking as well

There's an app called PowerCall by mgeek that would've been perfect for this.

Problem is it was removed from the market and I can't seem to find any info on it from a trusted source.

I don't care so much about recording the call, I just want to take notes that can be associated with the caller.

I've had good luck with AllCallRecorder (AllCallRecorder v1.3 Application for Android | Tools )
Both sides of the call have been clear enough to understand what was said.

Likewise, this is an app that I used constantly on my Palm Treo, and I am frustrated that the Android platform doesn't have an app for this. I switched from Palm to Android to go to the supposed "best" and hottest system out there. What a dissapointment.

I used the CallRecorder do go over what my father would describe to me regarding various projects, from electrical wiring and subpanels (he's an electrical engineer) to stock market information. Similarly, I'd be able to review what various vendors or businesses would tell me regarding various products that I'd called about.

It was possibly the most valuable feature on my phone, and now I realize that in fact it is extremley valuable.

I, too, would pay to have a working version of call recorder that didn't require me to use the speaker phone.

This is something a ROM dev has to fix with the phone. Ultimately, it's only going to be able to happen with a rooted Droid. Recording both the speaker and microphone hardware is simple. It has to have been disabled within the phone.

Just switched from the Droid to the Incredible for this very issue. vRecorder works, but with very low volume on the other party (seems to only record through the microphone, because recordings sound much better if the call was on speakerphone). Fine for now, but I would really love to see an app that records both sides decently. I would gladly pay for it.

The fact that you've cross posted this on just about every forum and resurrected every thread on the subject, and that you apparently joined just to post about it, I'm already getting the impression that it's probably a scam app. I won't even think of downloading it until it's proven otherwise.

blah, want this option for EVO !!!

its not illegal by the way. Only illegal to record someone elses conversation when the parties invovled do not know it is being done so. If you record your conversation, at least YOU know that it is being recorded. One party of the conversation has to know it is being recorded. At least this is my interpretation of what I read.

This varies depending on your state. Make sure you check first! (just some friendly advice )

Looks nice, but no record function (maybe was taken out for legal reasons?)


Power Call

Just checked again... not found in market via their barcode search. You could check with the dev though. Might have some insight on this mystery.

Don't confuse federal vs state laws. The federal law is a one party rule, but many states (including but not limited to:California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington) require BOTH parties to have knowledge that they are being recorded. There are some exceptions when it involves a crime in progress, restraining orders involved, warrants, etc.

Be careful giving out legal advice like "it's not illegal by the way". I know you are trying to be helpful, but you don't want to be the helpful hand that guides someone onto legal trouble.

Anyone can look this information up if they want to. Nobody cares.
What's anyone's good excuse for wanting a phone call recorder?
"I just want to record my calls because I forget a lot."


Why do I care about the discussion? Because I keep checking this thread hoping there will be a post about a new call recording app, and I for one don't want to see this turn into a "who knows what" battle of the "Legal-Eagle never made it to/thru Law School" pissing contest when nobody who wants a call recorder app really gives a crap!

Why can't someone just mess with the software to get the hardware to cooperate? Can't be that difficult. (?)

Seriously, I have a traumatic brain injury and to be honest I forgot what I ate this morning. just got the evo and this kind of app is a must for me as I used to have touch pro2 with an app called Auto Call Recorder installed on that and it was great. Also, I would really love to see an app that records both sides decently. I would gladly pay for it as well.

I found one in the market - any thoughts?

Calls Log (Secret Monitor) - it's in the market, it's free, and it seems to work - have recorded 2 calls already.

Finding it in the market is rather tough - it is there, but you have to scroll down. Author's name is Giardina Marcello.

Another way to find it is to use the QRCode at this link http://www.androidream.com/ for their other app, then scroll down and select More applications by ... - and it should then show up.

To add to what johnlgalt has said, if you have App Brain Market Sync installed, here is the link for the app: Calls Log (Secret Monitor) - Android app on AppBrain.

Edit: I use Google Voice to record my calls. I know that it is not all secretive and what not, but I only record calls when talking to clients. Usually, I am giving quotes and so I inform them that I am recording the call anyways.

Wait, what? You can do that in GV? I suppose that means that hte call has to be routed through GV?

Pfft - Calls Log is just a log of calls made on the phone, not a recording of them.

back to the drawing board....

Yep, the call has to be routed through Google. Here is the link to tell you what to do: Recording calls : Basics - Google Voice Help.

How to record your call:
In order to record your call, simply press 4. You can do it when you first accept a call, or any time after it's started. To stop the recording, press 4 again or hang up.
Your recordings are saved online and you can access them just like you do with voicemail.

You can only use the recording function when receiving a call as of right now, but since my clients call me to get quotes, I don't have any issues with this.

Excellent. I have already started giving out my GV number (my main one - have to start giving out the other 2 soon) as my de facto #.
