I’ve recently bought an HTC Touch Diamond II telephone.
A family relative asked me whether such “überphone” 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:
- Create a key called “AudioRecording” in “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\”
- Inside that key you’ve created, add a new dword called “Enabled” with a value of 00000001.
- Create a key called “Voice” inside “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft”
- 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.
