Step 1 – enter your email address
Step 2 – enter the phone number of the person you want to call
Step 3 – press ‘Start Recording’ – That’s it – Done! Your iPhone will now make the call to the number you supplied, automatically enter your PIN and at the end of the call the recording will be emailed to you in MP3 format.
A – The current version of the Call Recorder app will only work in the UK. This is because it makes use of UK based premium rate numbers as a means of billing. These numbers will not work anywhere outside the UK. There are plans for an enhanced version of the app providing worldwide coverage.
A – The current tariffs are 25p per minute for calls to UK domestic numbers and 50p per minute for calls to UK mobile numbers and certain international destinations. UK domestic numbers are numbers starting with 01, 02, 03 or 0800. Any other UK number such as 0844, 0845, 0870 & 0871 together with UK mobile numbers cost 50p per minute.
A – The most likely cause of this may be because your network provider (who you pay your mobile phone bill to) has not given you access to premium rate numbers. A call to their customer services department will rectify this. If they will not give you access our web based service may be a better solution for you. It can be used via a fixed line phone as well as a mobile device.
A – The person receiving the call from the Call Recorder app will see a ‘Private’ or ‘Blocked’ number. As we make an outbound call after receiving your inbound call we are not permitted to ‘pass’ your number to the called party.
A – As soon as your phone call ends we send the recording to the email address you supplied in step 1. The time it takes to arrive will depend on the size of the file and the email provider you use. The size of the file is dictated by the length of the call. As a rule of thumb, a 17 minute call will produce a file of 1mb in size.
A – This will depend on the data package you have on your iPhone. If you have an inclusive data package, then this is probably not a concern to you, but if you’re paying per megabyte then it will be a good idea to check with your network operator. If this is a concern then we’d suggest using an email address other than the one on your iPhone.
A – No, whether you choose to listen to the recording on your iPhone or on your computer, most devices and operating systems provide standard software to enable you to play it.
A – MP3. A very standard, efficient format.
