    This was not possible on the Droid 1, 2, and X, so I'm assuming it's probably the same on the rest of the Motorola phones. Most HTC devices support call recording with a simple kernel patch.

    I'll start this by saying that I have never tried this, but if you call using Google Voice, you can set an option to record a call. You press "4" while in the call to start recording; it is supposed to announce that the recording is about to start.

    See Recording calls - Google Voice Help

    Yep, just confirmed that this works. The announcement is, "This call is now being recorded."

    But there's a catch; it only works if someone calls your Google Voice number -- it doesn't work if you originate the call:

    EDIT: out of curiosity, I wondered what would happen if the side that recorded pressed the mute button before starting to record. Guess what? Both sides still hear the announcement. :p

    Almost all states are 1 person consent, only a hand full aren't. I posted the legalities of recording conversations in another thread where someone was asking the same questions.

    Personal use is just fine. Radio shack use to sell in line phone tap devices that you could directly listen in on or hook a recorder up to. Of course a recording without consent cannot be use legally (or used at all). And unless you plan on using a recording as black mail I doubt there would be any legal actions taken by your friend that you recorded for fun.

    How come the old razr flip phones all had this feature but they can't make it available on a smart phone. I used this feature a number of times I needed to get directions or numbers when I didn't have a pen handy. I have the og droid and was very disappointed there wasn't a good app for this. If it's true htc phones can do it and moto's can't that might be enough to sway me to them.

    Call recording is very usefull for many legal reasons, for keeping numbers, dates, streets etc It is not normal to ban it

    It is the first of my phones which doesn't allow recording calls... All other phones that I had, allow it...

    I try with XT883 rom (the best rom by faaar...) but I haven't GSM signal... I stay with XT862 some time, but I will search for a new phone, soon... I am disappointed with this phone, maybe I will buy HTC My touch 4G...
