    Recording Telephone calls

    Hi All,

    I've written down incorrectly and forgotten important content in a telephone call again.

    I really need to be able to record my telephone calls, does anyone know which equipment could help me? I have a Virgin land-line.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Most modern phones with an answerphone attached will allow you to do that. If you want a separate recording device there are called telephone recording devices. Also, so dictaphones can do this too. I would just look online & see what may suit you, to get an idea what is out there.

    Thanks Stephen.

    However, I forgot to mention a vital bit, I need to be able to transfer the calls to my computer as well.

    Also, normal answer phone type phones only tend to record short amounts. Call I need recorded can be 1 hours+.

    You need a USB version then, or similar. I am not an expert, so I would search online & see what is available. These days most devices are compatible with PCs. A specific telephone recording device may suit you better. You can get devices that will record direct to a PC, external storage device such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

    digital recorders

    If your phone has a handsfree option you could use a digital voice recorder set to conference mode - you can record for hours and download files to your computer.

    In the end I went for Truecall. Not a perfect solution, but it appears to be the best available (or best I could find). Expensive as well over £100.

    Well I did a search & found a lot of them, different types. I suppose it depends on what your needs are & the price really. Hope you are happy with what you get.

    You do know the laws on recording calls, who you can & cannot share it with, when you have & do not need to inform the person on the other end you are recording, etc?
