Prototype application page.

A flexible answering machine, that can record incoming calls.

For example, a caller on your 'answerphone' list, when you have your phone in silent mode, may drop straight to answerphone, where the phone plays a message down the phone, then takes a callers message.

Related functionality could be to screen phone spam. See Wishlist:Human_screening.

Maybe asterisk could be used for this? It already supports DTMF detection, complex menu structures, recording messages and redirecting calls to other locations (via VOIP).


The audio chip in the Neo1973 only has 2 A/D and 3 D/A.

This means that the phone cannot play (stereo?) mp3 while answering the phone for you.

Away feature

A mode like silent mode, where you record a short voice message that will be played for people calling. E.g. "I'm not answering the phone because I'm in the cinema."
