I've always believed that it's illegal to record a conversation without
*all* parties giving consent, and the telephone is largely irrelevant.
That's why cops will tell you first thing that they're recording the
conversation when they pull you over (maybe you don't get pulled over
very often).

Not a lawyer, layman's opinion, etc.
