    I have a Samsung 8500 that has a one-button record feature, which can be
    used to record the callers message, or record a voice memo if I'm not on a
    call. This is a handy feature when driving, or whenever a notepad isn't
    handy. I find it unbelievable that the newer phones have a zillion features
    that I don't want, and they have eliminated the one-button memo feature.
    With all the fuss about using a cellphone while you are driving you would
    think the manufacturers would be trying to reduce the impact of using a
    phone while driving. I guess the marketing surveys showed that people
    didn't use or want that feature.
    Many of the new phones do have some type of memo record feature, but it may
    require 5 to 10 button pushes, and some scrolling through menu lists.....not
    condusive to use while trying to drive IMHO.

    Anyone know of a PCS phone with a convenient (one-button) call-record
    feature?

    It looks like you're asking for two different things, a call record and a
    memo function --- that said the 7300 has a one button record, and I think my
    older 4900 had it too. It doesn't record calls, but it does do memos nicely.
    The call record I don't know about.

    Yes, I suppose it is two different things, but on my phone the record button
    does both things, depending on whether or not the phone is on a call. The
    same button also brings up the review menu to listen to the recorded info.
    Thanks for the leads.

    FWIW, I looked up the Sanyo RL-7300 'redi-link' phone. There is the
    capability of recording memos and calls, but the feature is almost a joke
    for the following reasons:
    1. you have to make a minimum of 7 button-presses, including a scroll, to
    record. That is distracting and not convenient. I must say that it is
    easier when in speakerphone mode, but I didn't look up the process required
    to enter speakerphone mode, since it would be very noisy when driving.
    2. you can record up to 12 memos/calls, but the maximum time per memo is
    only 18 seconds, which might just be long enough to get a phone number
    vocalized, but forget about any directions or instructions.
    3. total recording time is a whopping 72 seconds.
    Other than these limitations, I liked the look of the phone.

    I just got the Samsung i500 and it has the feature you are looking for - one
    button records calls or a voice message if you are not on a call.
