View Full Version : Call recording supported on some new HTC handsets (e.g., the Touch HD)?!

03-22-2009, 11:09 AM
Up until now, very few Windows Mobile handsets have supported call recording, which has also resulted in, after giving my call recording-capable HTC s310 to my wife, my sticking to a Symbian S60 phone (the Nokia N95) for plain phoning purposes.

Fortunately, some XDA-Developers forum members discovered the HTC Touch HD running Asian ROM’s do have built-in support for flawless (read: no need to rely on “sound bleeding” from the speaker to the mike to record the other party) call recording, while non-Asian ROM’s didn’t have this feature. They have quickly ripped the app so that others can also install it.

Currently, only few WinMo models and ROM versions do support call recording; for example, the
Touch HD (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=457808), the Kaiser (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=3366846) and the Raphael (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=474920) (CDMA-specific thread HERE (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=476316); reported success (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3290432&postcount=157) with for example the new 5.05 leaked WWE ROM (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3267465&postcount=1)). (Click the links for additional info.)

Note that I’ve started and will (try to) maintain a list of the supported models and ROM versions. It’s available HERE (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=3505000).

On my HTC Universal running Tomal 8.5 WM 6.1 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=454906) (tested with the plain registry import (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3316289&postcount=201), the original CAB file linked to in the first post of the Kaiser thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=3366846) and Monx’s repack (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3156859&postcount=10) – it’s the latter two that you should try first after reading thru at least the Touch HD thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=457808) – yes, I know it’s long and quite hard to read, but it still has a lot of nice info), it doesn’t work. The second did show up the “Record conversation” menu item while talking; the third didn’t at all. Nevertheless, nothing resulted in recording the other party, other than the sound bleeding from the speaker.
