Please see the attached Fixed Line Operator (Telkom) Voice Mail answering Service. There is a distinctive tone indicated on the telephone handset when picking it up to indicate a message is waiting. Is there a device available that can indicate that a message is waiting and automatically retrieve the message and play it for the subscriber?
 This would save the trouble of each time dialling the prescribed phone number to retrieve and messages. It would be useful if the Message Waiting Tone could be detected and displayed fro the user. It would be wonderful if the device could play back the messages through a loudspeaker. I would imagine this would be a programmable dialler of sorts. The device should be senior Citizen friendly.

Possible yes, realistic to create as a product, no.

I would suggest using a provider and telephony device that has visual notification of voicemail, this is possible on ISDN and VoIP devices,

For PSTN I would suggest using a local device for voicemail rather than a hosted service.

Most insightful. The local devices I have found only seem to offer a max of 7 rings before calls are answered. Can you suggest any and are you aware of one with more rings. TAD. tx Shaun

Panasonic used to sell standalone units, but it appears that they only provide devices with built in DECT handsets
