Currently Being ModeratedJan 1, 2009 6:41 AM (in response to dransel)I believe the voicemail greeting is stored on AT&T's server so this would probably need to involve AT&T. AT&T offers an answer tones service that provides for something similar to this but from a selection of music or sound bites while the call is ringing before being answered or the voicemail greeting is heard.
I'm fairly certain there are no add ons or apps that provide for this which would likely have to work in conjunction with AT&T and their servers.
Since this is a user to user help forum only, doubtful anyone knows what Apple has plans in this regard if anything. You can use the iPhone feedback link to provide Apple your feedback. PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 3G 16GB

YouMail sends your voicemails as an email with an mp3 attachment, so listening to them isn't as convenient as with the built-in voicemail. It's fun to be able to customize your outgoing message based on who is calling you, but I don't know if it's worth the loss of minutes AND retrieval convenience.Windows XP Pro, iPhone 3G
