you should, might have to adjust level in the settings, i would turn up the phone to about 90 (of 100% vol) to get less "background" noise.
depending on what you want to record, might wanna check the legal aspect of it first.
e.g. some states/places require you to inform and get consent from the other party, if recording lets say a phone call.
 
Disagree. Phone output maybe too much for mic, start with lowest volume first, then if major distortion even at the lowest, u will need an inline attenuating cable.

Btw, your phone output most likely stereo, and mic input is mono, so u will get a single channel only. Maybe tricky finding this cable.
