I want an easy, reliable way to record phone calls using my laptop's internal microphone. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1525.

I'll describe the method I've found, and you can tell me if there's a better or cheaper way, or if I'm doing it wrong.

Is there a better way to do this than the configuration described above? I really want to make this happen, and I'm sick of not being certain of what I'm doing.

Is there a better software?

This is not something most of us do. About all that can be done is research the solution, ask some questions, and dive in.

By the time you get it working to your satisfaction, you'll probably be the phone recording guru in your neck of the woods. Whatever gear you buy, insure you can return it for a refund if it doesn't work for you.

Hi Paul,

I am not sure exactly what you want to do but I have recently discovered a service called You don't need any software and you can record from any computer or phone.
Your calls are then stored in an inbox type of interface so it is really easy to play back, tag, share or do what ever you want.

I hope this helps

I use WM Sound Recorder to record my HTC Touch Pro phone conversation. It could also record outgoing and incoming calls automatically.
