This blog introduces the topic of voice transmissions over cellular frequencies, and some of the things you can do to record them.
Greetings and Salutations!
Greetings and salutations, my dear reader. I’m glad you’re here. We are going to talk about something that is of great importance: cell phone recordings!
Why am I qualified to write this article? Well, for starters I have been in the recording industry for over a decade now and have worked with some of the top names in the business. Additionally, I am an avid listener of podcasts and have listened many hundreds upon hundreds of hours worth of recorded audio content over that time period. Furthermore, my wife has been doing voice acting work since before we met (she was one of the first people who ever taught me what voice acting was), so she has given me plenty examples over our years together as well as during her more recent gigs as an actress on shows such as The Walking Dead’s Telltale series or Netflix’s Dark Crystal prequel series where she played multiple roles including lead antagonist Aughra who was voiced by puppeteer Dave Goelz). In addition to all this experience listening/working with others’ voices all day every day plus personal experience with audio recordings myself (one might say “the cake”), we also live very close to one another so our commute between home office site location locations is extremely short — thus allowing us ample opportunities for conversation while driving back and forth from work each day — which makes listening even easier because it doesn’t require any extra effort beyond just talking normally!
Voice Transmissions Over Cellular Frequencies
Cell phone recordings are not something that the average person thinks about, even though they can be very important. For example, if you want to record a conversation between yourself and another party for legal purposes, then you should do so by using a cell phone.
There are many different ways for you to record phone calls on your cell phone. One of the most popular ways is through an app called Easy Call Recorder which works on Android phones and Apple iPhones/iPads (not sure about Windows Phones). The other way is by simply using the basic built-in microphone on your device.
If neither of these options work for what you need, there are plenty other apps out there that can help! Some examples include Call Recorder Pro, TapeACall Pro and several others from Google Playstore (Android) or App Store (Apple).
Cell Phone Recordings
While it is true that cell phone recordings are legal in some states, there are some exceptions to this rule. If you live in California, Florida or Maryland then call recording is illegal unless it’s specifically authorized by either party. In other words, if you have the consent of both parties then it should be fine. This is true for both domestic and international calls as long as you’re within one of these three states.
If you’re worried about how to record a call on an iPhone 5S/5C/6/6 Plus/7/8 series or iPad Air 2/3rd generation then I’ve got good news for you! You can use any number of apps available from iTunes Store or Google Play Store; however, the best app by far which will allow you to do so without having any issues whatsoever would be Call Recorder Pro!
Tape-A-Talk Pro (Android)
The Tape-A-Talk Pro app allows you to record phone calls on your Android device. It is free to download, but the in-app purchase needs to be made if you want to use recording functionality. While it can be a bit confusing at first, the app is overall easy to use and has many features that are worth paying for.
Recording Calls on iPhone
Recording calls on an iPhone is a pretty straightforward process. To start, you’ll need to download and install the Voice Recorder app from the App Store. Once it’s installed, tap on the Voice Recorder icon in your home screen to open up the app.
Now that you’re in voice recorder, there are a few ways you can use it:
- Using headphones or earbuds with buttons – If you have wired headphones or earbuds with physical buttons, press and hold one of those buttons until your iPhone starts recording. Release it when you’re done. This method only works if your headphones/earbuds support call controls (and not all do). If they don’t support call controls, try using one of these next two options instead.* Using a Bluetooth headset – If you want to record calls without having to worry about holding down any buttons at all, then go ahead and pair up your favorite Bluetooth headset with iOS 7 devices (iPhone 4s onward) using Settings > Bluetooth so that audio passes through over this wireless connection instead of through wires directly into an external mic input jack.* Using EarPods (or similar) – Apple’s more recent EarPods come equipped with built-in microphones so they’re perfect for recording conversations hands-free!

As you can see, voice transmission over cell frequencies is more complicated than one might think. It’s also a topic that’s been around for decades but still receives little attention. Hopefully this brief overview of some of the basics helped shed light on an important aspect of communication that we take for granted every day when we make cell phone calls or stream music through an app like Spotify. Now go grab yourself some soda (mine has caffeine) while pondering how far we’ve come since those primitive days when our ancestors used walkie-talkies to talk back and forth between their houses!
