Voice recording on cell phones?

    Does this technology exist? Without speaker phone, is there any way to record a cell conversation? I've asked around at some office supply stores and people look at me like I'm an idiot.

    My cell phone has an internal recorder that records 3 minutes at a time. In a pinch, I can use it as a digital recorder for in-person interviews, but it's certainly not the best option. Look closely at your user guide or explore the function icons. Maybe you've got an internal recorder. It's a bit of a pain in the ass to use during a call, but it saved my butt once.

    Takes you to the RadioShack site, but the recorder device is no longer available. I think I did a Google search and found the earbud device that works great with a digital recorder. Also found a more compact device that works with an earpiece which allows you to record without holding the phone to your ear like during a conference call.
    Good luck.
