    Hi guys-
    I am looking for an"Answering Machine" type app that after 3 or so rings will give a pre recorded message, beep, then record the callers message on the phone itself..

    Hello and welcome!!
    Are you looking for something in particular?
    Who is your carrier and what device/model do you have?
    Would not the carriers voicemail suffice?

    US Cell, Galaxy s5
    I am looking for more privacy-not being forced to retrieve messages from a server.

    Thanks

    Ah, ok...not even sure that's available, but I could be wrong. :)
    I'm sure someone can shed more light on this subject!

    Some tell me that with the Android OS it may not be possible...if so I would like to know the mechanics behind the reason.

    Thanks!

    If your phone is switched off or in a poor reception area nobody would be able to leave you a message so having a handset based message retrieval service would not be very efficient.

    I had never seen such application. It is not yet finished voicemail era. Although such an application would be fun to use
