Remote Call Screening
21 Jan 2006 12:18:58 -0800

I am looking for a phone answering machine with a wireless remote.

I want the remote to be able to screen calls (not just be able to play
messages later).

So, when the answering machine picks up, and I hear "Hey Mike, pick up
the phone!" on the speaker in the base unit, I want a similar speaker
in the remote to repeat what the base speaker is saying.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Well, I can tell you that my Uniden
cordless phone/answering machine _comes close_ and does allow
intercepting of calls when messages are being left. But the overall
space where it is located is small enough that I can hear the
answering machine speaker even in a close by room. It even transmits
the caller ID information to the wireless unit, but it does _not_
allow for message delivery to the wireless unit while message
receiving is in progress, I do not think. But you might check Uniden;
if anyone has it the way you want it, they might. PAT]
