Abstract

When a person is driving and using their cellular phone, it is often difficult for them to write down a message. It may not be convenient for the cellular user to take notes, and it is unsafe while driving. For example, the driver may want to write down an important phone number. We should have a feature that allows a cellular user to record the conversation he or she is in to retrieve at a later time.
