can't find "the stick"

By reeree ·
I am looking for a product that you put on your phoneline before your computer, fax, and answering machine. The one type I have seen is called "THE STICK", it is about 5" long and 2" wide. It's purpose is to determine if an incoming call is a phonecall,fax or whatever. I know it exist buy searching the net has been non-productive. I am also looking for an internet answering machine. I think this is a software program but, I am not sure. any help would be appreciated!

Any fax or answering machine made in the last several years can automatically determine the type of call (9 times out of 10 anyway). You shouldn't need a "stick" or anything else....just hook it all up. As for the internet answeing machine, you have to have call forwarding on busy enabled from your phone company. Then a third party sets up a number that your calls are fowarded to. When the caller leaves a msg the company then send you a pop-up while you are online indicating you have messages. You can retrieve them while online if you have speakers. Not a bad setup, but this has been mostly and PRIMARILY used for marketing....they get your number, your name, your IP, etc and then the junk and spam never ends. I don't recommend this service simply because of the way it's being used....they don't really care if you get your message or not; they just want the marketing data you provide.

Not sure if they still market it, but Radio Shack used to have just such an item. Don't think it was referred to as a "stick" though.

Good luck!

what you are looking for is called the commswitch 5500, 6500 or 7500. It will perform all the functions you have mentioned and more. It can even dial a predetermined number and send tones to notify you of incomming messages. Check out this web site command-comm.com.
Good luck.
