Internet Answering Machine will allow you to hear who's calling while you're online, and avoid the cost of an extra phone line. Instead of getting a busy signal, your callers can leave a message that you hear over your computer speakers. By using automatic busy call forwarding, callers are redirected to a voice mail system through the Callwave servers. After your PC downloads the message, you hear the recording and can decide whether or not to get offline. Callwave is a must-have for modem users wanting to avoid paying for a second phone line.

    Reviewing 3.07.5 (Dec 16, 2004)

    One of the oldest of this type of program. One problem, on my system, is if I want to delete a message before it has completed downloading, the program freezes and I have to delete it's process in memory. The only noticeable change in past years is the caller-id feature and possibly telemarketer blocking but I would think there would be more such as: 1) take call messages while using telephone, 2) able to right-click/edit listed phone number and change to a name or description (Dad - work, etc.), 3) upload a reasonably sized greeting message, 4) black-list a phone number (user choice of partially or completely blocking a message [partial blocks message download. complete is completely intercepted and user is never aware the call occurred.]} I would be willing to pay more for these features which provide some utility to me. -1 point for freezing and -1 for lack of previous features.

    This thing rocks! Its free, or if you want to use the Caller ID feature its only like a couple bucks a month. Ive been using if for two or three years now.

    It's always nice to see the number and name of the person calling you. This does much much more, and I've used it for a couple of years with no problem yet. In fact, you can subscribe to this from the company its self, or where I live, from the local phone company. Just to try it out, they will give you one month free.

    I have used the program and like it but it would be better if it also included the caller's caller id information.
