How to Use a Digital Recorder to Record Conversations from Your Cell Pone


One can easily record cell phone conversations by various methods such as in-built call recording application present on your cell phone, downloading and installing a third party application for the same purpose or you can even use your digital recorder to record conversations from your cell phone. Before you record a cell phone, it is important to know that it is unethical to record a phone call without the permission and approval of the cell phone user.

Here are the easy to perform steps that will allow you record cell phone conversations by means of a digital recorder:

  1. Attach the 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter to the jack where you connect the headset on your cell phone. Handsfree headsets are usually provided by the manufacturer when you buy the cell phone. If you don’t have one, you need to contact your cell phone dealer to provide you with handsfree for your cell phone.
  2. You need to attach a 3.5mm patch cable to the 3.5mm adapter. Connect the other end of the same cable to the digital recorder.
  3. The next step would be to attach the headphones to the digital recorder. If your digital recording allows you  to check real-time recording, enable it so that you listen to the conversation that is being recorded on your digital recorder.
  4. Get another microphone and connect it to the digital recorder. If you do this, you will be able to record your voice also while recording a cell phone conversation.
  5. Now you are ready to record conversations from your cell phone. Whenever you get a phone call, press the record button on the digital recorder. You can speak through the receiver present on your cell phone as you normally but you can hear the voice of the other person on the call via headphones connected to the digital recorder.
  6. Once the recording is done, you can transfer the recorded audio file on to your computer by transferring the file from digital recorder to your PC. Alternatively, you can also transfer the recorded audio file which is now present in your PC to your cell phone by data transfer via USB, Bluetooth or memory card reader.

Recording cell phone conversations via digital recorder can be a good option if you compare it with the in-built or third party call recording applications. Whenever you make use of such applications to record conversations, you can often hear beeps at regular intervals which can be heard by both parties on a call. This way anybody can come to know that the phone call is being recorded. Hence, you can record the phone calls via digital recorder to safely record the conversation without letting the person on the other side of the call know about it.
