An answering machine, also known as an answer machine (especially in UK and British commonwealth countries), ansafone (tradename ), ansaphone (tradename ), answerphone or telephone answering device (TAD), is a device for automatically answering telephone calls and recording messages left by callers when the party called is unable to answer the phone. Unlike voicemail, which is a centralised or networked system that performs a similar function, an answering machine is installed in the customer's premises alongside the customer's telephone. While early answering machines used magnetic tape technology, most modern equipment uses solid state memories. Magnetic tape is still used in many low cost devices. However, answering machines that use magnetic tape cannot be found in most stores today.
Most modern answering machines have a system for greeting. The owner may record his or her message that will be played to the caller. An automatic message if the owner does not record is common. Answering machines can usually be programmed to take the call at a certain number of rings. This is useful if the owner is screening calls and does not wish to speak with all callers.

You know what I hate about answering machine messages? They go on and on, wasting your time. I mean, all they really need to say is, "We aren't in, leave a message." That's why I've decided to keep mine simple and short. I pledge to you, my caller, that you will never have to suffer through another long answering machine message when you call me...

You have reached 934-2435. We picked this machine up at a garage sale in "as-is" condition. You can try to leave a message on it, but we are not sure it will be recorded. If we don't return your call, it means the machine did not work.
