I want to install an answering machine app on Galaxy Note, didn't find anything interesting in Google. What do you recommend? Or is there such a feature on the phone itself, in settings or somewhere?

Something with a recorded message saying "I'm not available now, please leave your message or phone number".

I found two questions quite similar to mine asked, but they didn't get any satisfying answers. – Gigili May 16 '12 at 19:00
What's wrong with using your carrier's answering service? – Chahk May 16 '12 at 19:01
Are you looking for voicemail providers? Like youmail or google voice? Or something different? – Alex B May 16 '12 at 19:02
@Chahk: It doesn't have any. – Gigili May 16 '12 at 19:02
@AlexB: If those two do what I want, then it'd be okay. – Gigili May 16 '12 at 19:06

Google Voice should do what you want if you're in the US. On my phone I can go to Settings -> Call settings -> Voicemail and set it as the "Voicemail service" (you'll need the Google Voice app to do this).

There might be other apps to hook into this voicemail service setting but I can't find any at the moment.
