There are always some important calls that we intend to record in order to use them as a reference in the future. For example, if you are providing dimensions of a table desk to the manufacturer on phone, you might want to record the call to use it as proof if the manufacturer delivers a different-sized table. However, iPhone does not offer a built-in feature to record calls. But there is still one way you can do it completely free, without any time limits, and for both incoming and outgoing calls. So, let's explore that method and see how you can record calls on your iPhone.
Rev Call Recorder App
Rev is a leading provider of transcription services and has developed a call recorder app for iOS that is accessible for free. Using this app, you can record both incoming and outgoing calls without any time limits. All it requires is that you need a phone number that is in the U.S. and Canada. Interested in knowing more about how to use the Rev Call Recorder app? Keep reading the below content to know all the details.
Install Rev Call Recorder App
The very first step is to install Rev Call Recorder on your iPhone. To do that, go to "Rev website" and click the "Download on the App Store" button. It will take you to the App Store from where you can download and install the Rev app.
Rev is offering this app for free because the company intends that users will first record the call and then purchase their service for transcribing the recorded calls. So, they will generate revenue from the transcription. However, if you just want to record calls, then this app is completely free to use.
Set Up the App
Once the app is installed, launch it on your iPhone. It will ask you to enter your number. So, fill out your number and then verify it through OTP. Afterward, you are all set to start recording calls.
Record Outgoing Call within Rev App
To record an outgoing call with Rev Call Recorder, follow the below steps:
- Open the app and click the "Call" icon from the bottom.
- Type the number you want to contact and then click "Start Call".
- It will now ask you to call Rev's recorder. This way, it will make a conference call involving you, the Rev recorder, and the recipient. So, click the "Call +1 (415)738-2935" to call Rev's recorder.
This way, the call will initiate and Rev will start recording the call. You and the recipient will also hear the message saying that "This call is being recorded". It is recommended and sometimes compulsory by law to inform the other person that the call is being recorded. Once you are done with the call, click the call end button.
Once the call is ended, Rev will take you back to the main screen where you can see the file of the recorded call. When you click on it, it allows you to play, share, trim, rename, and delete the file. Moreover, if you want to transcribe the call, you can do it easily by paying the relevant fees to Rev.
Record Outgoing Call Outside Rev App
If you don't want to use the Rev app every time you want to record an outgoing call, you can still use Rev from your iPhone dialer. Follow the below steps to do it:
- Open the dialer and call the Rev's phone number (415)738-2935. This will initiate the recording.
- Click the "add call" button within the ongoing call and dial the number you want to call.
- Once the other person picks up the call, click the "merge calls" button. This way, the Rev and other outgoing calls get merged and start getting recorded.
- You can end both calls together by clicking the red call end button or you can end a specific call by clicking the "i" icon from the top right corner.
Once the call is ended, the recording will show up on the Rev app's main home screen.
Record Incoming Call
Just like recording outgoing calls, the Rev app also supports recording incoming calls. Follow the below steps to do it:
- Pick the incoming call and then click the "add call" button.
- Call the Rev's phone number (415)738-2935 and then click "merge calls" to initiate the conference call.
This way, the Rev will start recording the call, which you can access later from the Rev's app.
How to Record Calls for Non-US Numbers?
In case you don't have a U.S. or Canadian phone number, you can still use the Rev app to record calls. To do that, search "US SMS verify" on any search engine of your choice. Select one of the services that will provide you with the US phone number that you can enter in Rev and then also provide you with the verification code to enter. This way, you can set up the Rev app without having a US number. However, you also need to ensure that your sim carrier supports the U.S. calling and also offers good rates for those calls. It is necessary because you have to call the Rev's U.S. number to record the call every time.
Recording calls can help us in many ways, but there are no direct click-based ways to record calls. Rev Call Recorder provides a free and limitless way to record calls on iPhone, while also keeping the other person informed about the recording. So, follow the above-discussed steps and start recording calls on your iPhone.
