Call Announce Feature

Call Announce Feature

Looking for a good Call Announce feature that works with Comcast. Robo callers are now using "ordinary" 10-digit numbers with display names like, "Somerset, NJ" instead of 800 numbers that are easy to spot. I want a service that will ask the caller to record their name first and "announce" it to me BEFORE I accept the call. If I reject the call I want it to go to Comcast's voice mailbox (and still send me an e-mail transcription and wav file attachment). I'm willing to pay extra for the service at home, but don't need a fancy "Virtual PBX" system designed for businesses.


I checked out Google Voice but they don't use landlines yet. They actually have this Call Announce feature (but it's Call Screening - different from Comcast's version).


Any suggestions? Thx in advance.
