Is there a decent app that does this? I've a funny feeling it'll break some silly law, but figured i'd ask anyway. I saw some app, but it required you to give the caller some sort of ID number. This is no good. Am looking for something you can set to record before you call, or something that auto-kicks in when you take a call. Had this feature on an old Nokia 6230i i think it was & it was handy at times.

Not only that, it's a pay-for service.

Everyone loves a FREE app. Any free apps doing this anyone?

Only Jail Broken devices... :) It creates tracks when you decide to "intercept" a call..

Come on, 24h really?

He probably wants to use this a little longer than that and again: favors a free solution.

Can't blame him.

Indeed.

If what i've been told is to be believed, then US laws have basically spoiled this for anyone outside the US, as Apple wont ok these types of apps, despite this not being illegal in some other countries.

These aren't illegal everywhere in the USA. It is by state. In my state, you can totally record someone without their knowledge so long as YOU are part of the conversation. You cannot, however, record other people's conversations that you play no role in.

In the U.S.A., it is Illegal to record a person's phone call unless you notify him or her that their call is being recorded, and I think only Corporations are allowed to do so with their 1-800-xxx-xxxx Toll Free Number's and only for Quality and Training Purposes Only.

No, there is no federal law. Whether or not you need to notify is a state law thing. In my state it isn't required so long as you are involved in the conversation. It is, however, considered common courtesy everywhere.

My wife was able to record her ex-husband over the phone making threats to her and she presented it in court, for instance. She didn't need to let him know that she was recording him, because in my state that is legal. It didn't amount to much in court, however... they just kind of rolled their eyes and acted like it really wasn't that big of a deal. Whatever, he knows now that everything he says to us is recorded so he keeps his lips a lot tighter these days.

It did not amount much in court because it is illegal to record someone over a cell phone without notifying them.

Wikipedia itself isn't too sure on this but no, you cannot do it.

Read what it says... Only 12 states require you to give them notice.

Guys, can we stop the off topic legality discussion?

We're moving in circles and OP isn't even located in the US. And even if he were, it wouldn't matter because the topic is interesting nevertheless as the principle of recording a conversation is not illegal per s
