HOW TO – Automated cell phone answering system

Computers & Mobile Technology

My pal Randy just published an instructable for making an auto-answerer for a cell phone. It puts your callers on hold, wastes your minutes, and helps you promote your own band, not to mention bugs out your friends and confuses others. He hacked a bluetooth headset with some other components to make this customer service parody. Via fatlab.

    I wanted to hook something like this up when I had 6 free “family plan” hours a month, and I had an old RAZR lying around.

    if the phone would answer my (free) call , route it to skype… I get 6 free hours of calling! and I can send voice emails and so on… save $$$
