    Hi all,

    Anyone know if it's possible to somehow record a phone call from the iPhone? I am interviewing the Director of Health soon for a feature I'm writing and I can't find a way to record her! The voice-memo app automatically pauses when you go to a call. :sigh: The other way I thought was to call my voicemail whilst I was on the phone to her and record it that way (merging the calls) but that doesn't work, either. :thumbsdown:

    wow... I have never tried to do it...

    could you talk to her via your computer? maybe record it with facetime?

    Isn't that illegal? :unsure:

    Over here, I'm pretty sure it is unless you're the police and you've got a warrant.

    So long as you tell the person you are speaking to that you are recording them, it's OK Tom.

    Same thing here Tom. I frequently receive a recorded message that our conversations may be recorded.

    Thanks John. I wasn't sure anymore. I thought it could be done if you told them you're doing it but didn't think you could do it without their knowledge and consent.

    It was confusing to me I admit. But since I didn't ever record any phone calls, it didn't really register what the rules were surrounding it.

    All our calls at work are recorded and it has been a lifesaver on many occasions
