Default There's an upgrade to VR+

I discovered there's an upgrade to v.2 while playing with the original version I had. I've been looking for a call recorder myself, so in a VERY unscientific experiment, I called my cell from my home phone, answered the cell, activated VR+ to record, and, amazingly it captured both sides of the call. While talking to the cell, I had it buried under a pillow. The sound was intelligible enough for me to understand, "handset to cell, handset to cell", lol who says gadget geeks aren't crazy. So, I'm thinking if I put the BB on speakerphone, and hold the phone away from me, the captured call may not be too bad. But this is an unwieldy way to capture a call- answer call, go to switch applications, load VR+, then start recording. I just tried this with an outside caller, and ended up hanging up on the person. But thought to post this just to let all know there's an upgrade.

PS: it's legal in my state to record phone calls without the other side's permission as long as I'm a party to the conversation. I'd suggest you check your own state's laws as to "wiretapping", which is a criminal offense.
