    Some cell phones (like my Sony Ericsson) have a Record function, which usually records into AMR format, which you can get AMR->WAV conversion utilities for. It works out fairly well, actually. Just keep in mind that some states require that you notify both parties that the conversation is being recorded.

    Jim, if you have an answering machine that has a record conversation feature, you can use that.

    Telephone circuit bandwidth is limited to 300-3000Hz (sometimes 300-2750Hz) so you can simulate the sound by reducing the audio bandwidth captured on camera by means of suitable audio filters within the editing program, try giving it a rising response - say +6dB - over the 300-300Hz passband.

    Another suggestion :

    Depending on time scales, record the conversation at both ends seperately whilst the conversation is taking place on the phone with a microphone set up. Save the recorded file to a flash drive or cd and post to where the editing is taking place.

    Suggestion: do the phone interview with VOIP (Skype, etc.) => I guess you should be able to record the conversation directly with your PC.

    You probably know that a normal PSTN-line limits for bandwith reasons the transmitted sound frequency range, you're losing the high and low frequency range with a PSTN-line.
