  • Go to your native phone dialer app and make any test call.
  • In case the call screen displays the Record or Stop recording buttons – you can archive your calls. If RECORD or STOP recording controls are not available, calls are not recorded thus, they cannot be archived. Please contact TeleMessage support.
    (Note: The phone number displayed below is for illustrative purposes only and is NOT the number set on your phone. Furthermore, the Stop recording button is an Android system-supplied default which will prevent the Android Archiver from functioning and should not be tapped. Any cessation of recording generates an alert sent to the archiving administrator.)
