  • Standard Home Telephone – no special requirements
  • Magic Jack - yes! it works with Magic Jack!
  • DSL phone service – simply put a good DSL filter on the line
  • Vonage/Cable/VOIP/digital phone service – If your wall jacks can use the same old regular phones from before you switched to digital, then there are no special requirements. However, if you had to get new digital phones to use in the wall jacks, then you will also need the handset adapter.
  • PBX/Office phone lines – it will work with the handset adapter.


Questions on FSV-256 133-Hour Phone and Cell Phone Digital Recorder

  • From: MY maira
    • hi
      for fixed line phone recording : when attached to any socket on the same house/line, will it start and stop recording call automatically ?
    • Hi Maira, yes, it will automatically start and stop recording when it detects the phone line is in use. You can connect the recorder to any active wall jack in the house, and then it will record all phones in the house no matter what wall jack the phone being used is plugged into. This is because it is connected directly into the phone line and not the actual phone. Here's how it works:

      To automatically record unattended, simply connect it to the wall jack, turn the power on, and you're all set. It will shut itself off after a couple of minutes (to save on the battery power) but then when someone picks up a phone to make a call, or when an incoming call is answered, then it will automatically turn itself on and begin recording. When the call is done, it will stop recording and again power itself off after a few minutes (to again save on battery life) and wait for the next call and again power up when the next call starts. Each call will be saved as its own file.

  • From: Olga
    • Hi,

      Can I plug it in the Cable modem directly instead of my phone, and plug the phone in the additional jack on this adapter? Will it work?

      Thank you.
    • Hi Olga, yes that's exactly how it works for connecting to a cable modem.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From: Joseph
    • My Magic Jack is plugged into one of my iMac computer's USB ports, and my Plantronics Head Set is plugged into the Magic Jack. Where do I plug the Recorder into?
    • Hi Joseph, what you would do is get a 1-to-2 splitter so you can plug both the telephone and the recorder into the Magic Jack at the same time. (The splitter plugs into the Magic Jack, and then that splitter has two slots on it for you to plug both in.) You can get these splitters usually anywhere they sell telephone accessories, like Walmart, Radio Shack, Target, Kmart, etc., or, if you're buying the recorder from us now, just add a note in the Comments section when you're in the checkout saying that you need a 1-to-2 splitter and we will include one for free for you.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From: Jon
    • I want to record on my cell phone conversations please explain how is would work ?
    • Hi Jon, please look at the picture of the universal cell phone adapter, you'll see that one end of it is a plug and the other end of it is an earpiece. You put the plug into the phone recorder, and the ear piece in your ear. Then, you hold your cell phone up to that same ear and have your cell phone conversation as usual. (It doesn't actually even plug into the cell phone, that's how it's universal and will work with all brands.) There's a built in microphone in the ear piece that picks up both sides of the conversation.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From: smokey
    • Can you plug in the ear buds while recording a cell phone conversation while a third person listens to the conversation.
    • Hi Smokey, yes you can plug in the earphones and have a third person listen to the conversion as it's being recorded.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From: Bob
    • Does the unit emit a beeping sound or otherwise alert the other party the call is being recorded?

      And does the earpiece/microphone really pick up both sides of the call on a cell phone?
    • Hi Bob, no there is not a beep or any sound that would alert the other party you're recording. Yes the cell phone adapter does pick up both sides of the conversation. (Please see the explanation of how it works just two questions above this one.)
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
