Record phone call on Windows Mobile telephone.

I’ve recently bought an HTC Touch Diamond II telephone.

A family relative asked me whether such “├╝berphone” was able to record an ongoing conversation? Running Windows – I was pretty convinced it could do just that. But to my great surprise – a Windows Mobile telephone is (out of the box) not able to perform a recording of a phone conversation. I’ve read due to legal issues.

But hey – the phone has a harddisk and a microphone; so why should this not be possible?
Googling on the matter solved the mystery and the HTC Touch Diamond II is now able to perform a recording of a phone conversation.

Here is how:

  1. Create a key called “AudioRecording” in “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\
  2. Inside that key you’ve created, add a new dword called “Enabled” with a value of 00000001.
  3. Create a key called “Voice” inside “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft
  4. Inside that new key create two dword entries called “EnableCallRecordMenuItem” and “AllowInCallRecording“, both with the same value of 00000001. Soft reset your device.

Voila! You have a new menu option called “Record” when doing a phone call.

This is ideal for businesses that have sales staff on the go, something for them to refer back to if they take calls in the car handsfree of course
