Thanks for the reply
Thanks for the reply Alli.
Seems a bit lacking for such a clever piece of kit. If I'm driving and someone at the office want's to dictate a piece of information to me it seems that I have to park and write it down.
Do you know of any Apps that could facilitate this?

it's a legal issue at it's core.
There are too many different laws covering call recording inside the US alone let alone internationally. Imagine needing to make a different handset for every state, region, province, etc to comply. Then add in that Apple doesn't want to be a party to lawsuits and there's corporate agreements, justice dept agreements in multiple countries, etc.
What you end up with is a greatest common denominator device, or that you can't.
any app would need to interface with the phone part of the device between going in the speaker and before being encrypted. it's in Apple's hands to do.

The laws are quite whacked. In my state you can record a conversation as long as one person in the party is aware it's being recorded. Other states all parties being recorded must be aware.
Check your local laws before you start doing something like this. By doing so, you could potentially be saving yourself a lot of time, money, legal fees, unnecessary stress, etc.

It's an extremely handy feature for those conversations that you just don't have the ability to jot down on paper at the time of the call... and works great for CYA situations... ie: like phone calls with rude and obnoxious transportation dispatchers that change their story after something goes wrong with a load and try to leave the entire blame on the driver.

Correction about Centro and Palm Recording
I am still stuck with using my Centro phone because it DOES record both sides of telephone conversations, using an app called mVoice.
It's a great application that help me document medications when talking with my doctors. I'm a recovering 9/11 volunteer.
The application time stamps the WAV file and can easily be transferred and archived on my desktop. You can then convert it to mp3 for disk space saving purposes.
It's really ridiculous that cellphone manufacturers use the privacy issue as a reason to block recording apps.
In many states, like mine...New YOrk, one party consensual phone recording is perfectly legal. (you don't need consent of both parties).
The benefits of cellphone call recordings are endless. Unfortunately, cellphone makers don't get it.

Its not a law issue.
Apple could easily make an app for this without getting in trouble. Apple isnt responsible for anyone misusing, just like theyre not responsible if you use the same iPhone to call someone up and make death threats.
The person recording a phone call without letting the other person know the call is being recorded is the one who would get in trouble, not Apple.

CallRec.me is the App Store claims to record both incoming and outgoing calls and is free, I am going to mess with it and see how well it works, will report back my findings soon.
Update, I read the reviews of it and they are not very good. It seems to work but you only get the first 2 min free and then you have to pay for minutes.

This is a bit of a hassle, but you could launch a recorded call off of the Call Trunk website on your iPhone's browser. The website rings your iPhone, then your destination phone, and the calls are bridged and recorded. We are in the midst of jumping through Apple's hoops to get the native Call Trunk iPhone app ok'ed -- already have it available within the Android and BB stores. But it will record an iPhone call fine right now through the browser interface.
Cloud-based, keeps the call saved and available forever, free for the first 25 minutes. Contact me at ted@calltrunk. com for more information.
