Incoming call actions

2012-08-15, 20:35 PM

Is there a way for smart actions to register an incomming phone call and answer with a pre recorded message.  For instance, I hate when tellemarketers call and would like to have a set message to react to their call.

First you would have to be able to identify the phone number and add it to a VIP group - this is sort of hard to do unless you know all the telemarketers phone numbers in advance. But if you did, there is no way to play a custom message.

A very robust solution is to use google voice. If you use it for VM, then calls that you don't answer are forwarded to your GV number and you get Visual Voicemail, but even better GV has options to play "this number is out of service" and you can do it on a per number basis - so if you can identify the telemarketer number you could get GV to play them a message.
