What do you use to record a call?

by lampietheclown / March 20, 2006 5:57 AM PST

I've had it with customer service. All of it. In the last few months I've had phone conversations with insurance adjusters, cable companies, cell providers, and a mechanic.

What do all of the calls have in common? Lies, misdirection and half-truths, and no way of proving that I heard it, or that they said it.

So it's time to turn the tables on the "this call may be recorded to insure customer satisfaction" bunch, and start recording those calls. We've always been told to write down the date and the name of the rep, but I think it's time to add some tech. to it.

I know there are voice recorders on cell phones. I had a T68i that would record a phone conversation, but it was a difficult task, and the phone didn't have much memory. It also wouldn't record a conversation through the bluetooth headset.

Anyone out there doing it? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

You should try with any Walkman phone. Once in a call, it?s very simple to start recording. And the one with the smallest memory has 256MB!!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
