Please, help me (Record function)

[ Edited ]

Hi there!


I really need your help.


I'm using BlackBerry 8130. Actually, my first language is not a English.


It is little difficult to me to talk with someone by cell phone.


During talking with someone by blackberry, I'd like to record conversation and check the conversation.


Is this possible? (I try to find out solution on the Webpage, I can't.)


If it is possible, let me know, please. and shorcutkey.

Phone call recording is illegal in many places. Especially after the tragedies of September 11th 2001.

Re: Please, help me (Record function)

I'd like to know this as well. I have a Blackberry Curve. If I could figure out how to record phone calls, I could get rid of my land line and save a lot of money. I only have the land line so I can record phone interviews (I am a reporter). By the way, the other response to this question is wrong. The laws vary from state-to-state but it is almost always ok as long as both parties consent (I always obtain consent). Also, Sept 11 has nothing to do with it—if anything, recording of phone calls has gone way up since 9/11 because the government is listening into so many calls now!

(good link for the laws on this: http://www.citmedialaw.org/legal-guide/recording-phone-calls-and-conversations)

Really hope there is a solution out there!
