Phone conversations can be recorded using this model of IC recorder. To record cell phone conversations using the IC recorder, use an earphone-style electret-condenser microphone, such as the Sony® ECM-TL1, ECM-TL3 or similar Electret Condenser microphone.

For standard telephones, you can use either the electret-condenser microphone or a telephone recording adapter.

NOTE: The earphone-style electret condenser microphone and telephone recording adapter are not supplied with the IC recorder. To purchase one of these accessories, check with your local electronics store or contact Sony Parts and Accessory Sales. Go to Parts and Accessories.
