    I suggest anyone wanting to use this service check their state and local laws first. Many states have very specific requirements for legally recording phone calls.
    Very true! Recording a phone call without the consent of all parties _can_ be illegal - it depends on the state. In most US states, only one party needs to know about the recording, but about a dozen or so require all parties to give consent.

    The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press maintains a good state-by-state guide on the laws. Just Google for "Can we Tape?" and you'll find it.

    State Laws (Table)

    While the U.S. federal law only requires one-party consent, many states have accepted different laws. In some states all parties must give their consent or at least be notified that the call is about to be recorded (with necessary opt-out option: if you donít like them to record the call, you can ask them to stop recording). There also was a case law decision from many years ago (the 1950's) that went to the Supreme Court and affirmed that the federal law does not supersede state authority/statutes unless the call or the tap crosses state lines Ė that is why each state went ahead and established their own guideline/statute.

    My old Samsung Sch-8500 (around 2000-2001) had a button right on the side to record the current phone call (when not on a call it was the voice memo button), it was very handy if someone was giving you an address or phone number and this was when text messaging wasn't very popular. I always wondered why none of my subsequent phones had this feature maybe because of these laws.
