Has anyone looked at this as using the modem for a fax machine? I would like a Fax machine that saves the fax to a memory device so as to retrieve the information later by a PC so you can print only if wanted to do so. I get too many junk faxes which is just a waste of paper.

Good idea and easily doable using such shield because it will use voice/fax modem chip , So far 30696 views and counting but noone brought this idea to life :(

It can also be used as
1-Cold Caller Blocker
2-Telephone recording with Caller ID
3-Fax receiving/saving (as you suggested)
4-Answering machine
5-Interactive voice response system
6-Home automation over landline
7-Foundation for Arduino based PABX
8-DATA Communication
9-Auto dialer (Connected over blutooth to smart phone's phone directory)
10- GSM to Landline gateway
11- Smart Telephone set
12- Call forwarding

Seeing as Adafruit already do a "mobile" shield, getting all the approvals etc, they would seem to be the "goto" people to develop this type of shield.

Anyone posted in the Adafruit forum about this?

Yes, I  suggested them (Through contact US page)  couple of times but no response and same with seedstudio & sparkfun  :smiley-sad:

Still no nothing. However I wanted the arduino caller id to do a couple more things:

1. Connect to a service like maybe the truecaller api and get me the contact details directly.
2. If the number is spam (truecaller tells that), kill it.
3. After N rings move the call to a voice mail system and send me a mail including the recorded voice mail and even better if i could connect to google's transcribing api to transcribe the voicemail recieved.

Also since the telephone exchange already supplies the required current enough for arduino (i guess) how about building a emergency light out of this :)

Thats interesting but its just the software thing easily doable but first we need hardware platform which is unfortunatly noone is interested to bring to life  :-\
