    Isn't that what voicemail is for?

    I don't know any smartphone that comes with pre-installed with an internal
    answering machine function, but there are quite many available for the
    Series 60 and UIQ platforms.

    So therefore compatible devices are Series 60 phones: Nokia
    3650/3660/6600/7650/N-Gage and Siemens SX1

    And if you want a touch screen based device, there are for example the Sony
    Ericsson P800/P900.

    Example applications: http://my-symbian.com/main/index.php?s=answering

    I personally prefer the Answering Machine for Series 60 application with my
    Nokia 3650: http://www.iolansoftware.fi/am.html . It costs US$9,95 in
    Handango.

    Since the post went to a bunch of groups, I'm not sure where you replied
    from, but Voicemail is free (no monthly charge) on Verizon.

    On cellular, it's included. Also on cellular, if a call goes to
    voicemail it's usually because the phone never rang. Whether because
    of being in s poor service area or because the phone was off is
    immaterial... the call never got to he phone, so an in-phone answering
    machine is useless (to me, anyway).

    Landline, yeah, I have my own answering machine that is always left on.
    If it rings long enough for the answering machine to get it, I'm not
    home, and I forgot to set the call-forwarding to my cellular.

    Do you know of any answering machine programs for the P800/P900? I'm
    fairly certain that none exist, and that as a developer there is no
    way to get at the audio of a phone call. SonyEricsson certaintly
    thinks that you can't do that.

    The best quality and feature-rich answering machine system contained
    within the cell phone itself doesn't mean shit if the phone never gets
    the call.

    If you're willing to take that risk, that is your look-out. I'm not.

    You don't need to call anything to get your messages? Push one
    button... gee, that's tough job you got.

    If you don't have voice mail as an alternate call termination, the only
    thing a caller will hear when your handset fails to respond to a network
    page is a recording, "The cellular customer you have called has turned
    their unit off or driven beyond the service area. Please try again
    later." (close enough)

    I wonder how critical that call was.
