I just want to change one thing that @simon said:
i very much doubt that rim will ever implement something like this.
From what MSohm has said, the services that do this route the call through their own system in order to record the call.

If BlackBerry doesn't support call recording, who does? Is that a feature that is becoming increasingly or decreasingly common? I like my BlackBerry but might switch if BlackBerry phones aren't keeping up with what other smartphones can do.

It depends on how you look/think about it. If you download a game and in the middle of the game you get a phone call, do you really want the game to be able to record your phone call?
I think it is a relatively common function but for a security conscious device like BlackBerry it is a feature that will never get implemented. Not because they are behind but because the security risk is there if they add that feature.

Good point. But I think I'd rather have it as an option, i.e. one that I could turn on or off, than have it denied altogether. It seems that we (BlackBerry users) are at a disadvantage in that our conversations can be recorded by some non-BlackBerry users, while having no such leverage ourselves. That arguably puts us in a less secure position.
Regardless, I guess this saves me the trouble of writing the call recording app I'd planned on writing.

Good point yourself, it would be good to have it as an option but it would need to be denied by default (obviously) and some applications could ask for permission to use it even if they have no use with the feature.
I have some applications that always ask me for permissions that I deny, why does this app that use GPS, and internet need access to my phone contacts and files? I don't want phone recording added to that list.
