A telephone answering machine.
- It's not the prettiest phone in the world but my main desire was a cordless phone with an answerphone and speed-dial and this was the cheapest one of those.
- The device is a telephone, answerphone, fax, personal organiser and monitor, with email facilities, all rolled into one.
- If you telephone us, please talk to the answerphone!
