    When recording phone calls on my 6230 for the first time I noticed an
    annoying beep every five seconds. After reading the owner's manual it
    doesn't appear there is any way to turn this beep off. Is there
    something I'm missing in my phone settings? If not if there an
    app/hack available to disable this feature?

    Thanx in advance!

    the beep is to notify the other end that they are being recorded. It's
    to do with legal things.

    Sending a regulkar 'beep' used to be a legal requirement when
    recording voice conversations, but isn't any longer. These days the
    law just prevents recorded conversations being used in evidence unless
    the other party was informed that the call was being recorded, which
    is why you often get a "call may be recorded for training purposes"
    announcement while you wait in a queue with many businesses.

    Nokia haven't bothered to dispense with the feature, and no, there's
    no way to turn it off.

    BTW, if you use this feature a lot the 6230i can record hours rather
    than the 3 minutes that the 6230 is limited to.

    At work we get the beeping whenever we are being recorded so you know not to
    swear at your collagues.

    Is this option to record calls available on the 6680?
