Step 1: What You Need...

You'll need:
A mobile phone (Not pictured as i used phone to take pictures)
A Headset with a head phone port
A Sound card with a LINE IN port
Audio Recording software
A Headphone Cross over cable

Step 2: Connect It Up

Plug the Audio cable into the soundcard, Then the other end into the headset, That end into the phone.

Step 3: Load Up the Software

Load up your audio recording software. In my case it is Nero Wave Editor.

Step 4: Record

Select the record function on your software then choose source. And then LINE IN

Step 5: Make a Call

Again i would show you a call on my phone but i dont have any other camera.

Make a call, When it begins to ring hit record, talk away with the mouth peice, Once phone call is done stop recording

Step 6: Save and Edit Your Audio

Stop recording, and then save your call as MP3 or which ever file format you wish.

(PS this is my first instructable please comment with advice and improvements)

    If you have speakers linked up to your computer, turn them on. You will be able to hear the conversation
