I have never understood the logic behind making recording phone calls or other things "illegal". The only scenario in which I could justify it is if someone said "hey did you kill Ralph" and he responds back "ha yea I killed him" in a sarcastic way as to mean that he didn't kill him, but they take it as a confession, but had he have known he was being recorded he wouldn't have responded that way. I think it's crazy though how these recording laws are apparently so strongly pushed that cell phone companies now won't even attempt to allow you to record calls. Something that should be standard on any phone by now.
