ThePhoneBOT turns your Windows PC and voice modem into a powerful, multi-line telephone answering machine. With advanced features like: Message retrieval via the internet using your own brodband IP. Email, cell phone or I.M. notifications when new calls arrive. Audible Caller-ID. Complete phonebook with custom rings, greetings, and caller images. Skinable UI. Reverse lookups with mapquest like maps. Screensavers. Trillian Plugin!!
Here's how it works. First, when the phone rings, PhoneBOT will alert you by verbally announcing who is calling using callerID and windows speech technology. A custom "skinable" window appears detailing the callerID info as well as any image you have associated with that caller. (ie, a picture of mom appears when she calls)
Well mom can also have a custom greeting, "Hi Mom, leave a message" or anyone for that matter who's name regularly appears on your CallerID box. You can record your own greetings or use text to speech- this can be lots of fun! Supports Microsoft, AT&T and other voice systems.
Then, after recording the message PhoneBOT will email or text message your cel phone with a new call message including call length, name and number.
You can even do a reverse lookup with a click of the mouse and see a mapquest style map of where the call is coming from! It's amazing!
To retrieve your new voice message you can call the PhoneBOT and enter a pin, or simply type your IP address in any web browser and stream your voicemail over the internet!!! All you need is a broadband connection at home.
The PhoneBOT also features downloadable UI skins and screensavers displaying answering machine status.
With multiple modems you can have multiple phone lines!
ThePhoneBOT is 39.95 for the full version or FREE for a very functional, "lite" version!
