    WANTED: Call Screener App

    Advertisement



    I used to have a Sanyo phone that had a "CALL SCREEN" function when receiving incoming calls... I loved this function... for all of you that aren't familiar with it, here is how it worked....

    If your phone rang and it was blocked ID or a number you didn't recognize you could press SCREEN and the phone would answer the call with the microphone muted and play a fake voicemail greeting to the caller followed by a beep... you were able to listen in on the caller and as they started to "leave their message" you would be able to interrupt them and answer the call...

    it would also record the message to the phone as a WAV file so you replay the message later if you didn't decide to talk to the person right then...

    It also had the ability to use the phone as it's own voicemail service, so as long as the phone was on and in service, it would just take messages right on the hardware, so there was no need to call into your voicemail to check messages... you could play them right on the phone like VisualVoicemail with rewind and fast forward and callback options... it was great


    so ANYWAYS.... who wants to start writing up some code?!?!?!?

    Actually Grand Central is rubbish for this sort of thing since you have to get a brand new phone number to give out to everyone and not use your existing number. Try Black and White List from iberry software labs(or something like that). That's a true call screener.

    You can no longer send invites for GrandCentral, that is what they are referring to. The GrandCentral invite thread is null and void.

    I think what always was suggesting was to forget about GC all together and use black and white list...its not free but it works.

    Actually the black and white list trail doesn't run out as far as I can tell. I have had it sense aug. Of 07 and still works

    You could also try www.youmail.com they are totally free and does the same thing with screening calls and playing selected greetings for you individual contacts

    I've been using Youmail for a month now. Its a great concept and works seamlessly with my 8830.
