There is a standard headphones jack for a headset on my IP telephone,\nand I'd like to connect an answering machine to it. The trouble is I\ncan't find any answering machine in stores that has the headphone\njack. Also, couldn't find any regular answering machine for IP\ntelephones in VOIP internet stores.\n\nDid someone try to convert digital dictaphones into the answering\nmachines ? These days there are dictaphones which start recording when\ninitiated by voice. Likewise, I was thinking when a dictaphone\nreceives a signal from a telephone perhaps it can playback an audio\nfile as a greeting message and then record caller's message ? Are\nthere some wild hacks to dictaphones ?\n\nIs the only remaining option to subscribe to some voice message\nservice ? No more home answering machines ?\n\nThank you.
