AFAIK BT, our equivalent of AT&T, do not routinely record the contents of calls but definitely do record who called who when.
Well, yeah. They need it for billing (both to distinguish local and long-distance calls, when BT made that distinction, and to enable itemized billing, which essentially everyone expects at this point). They didn't implement it because they were told to by a shadowy government conspiracy, though if a shadowy government conspiracy *needs* the information now it's there I'm sure they can get at it.
