I need a stand alone telephone answering machine with a minimum 3
minute outgoing message (ogm) capability. Need to be able to purchase
it at a brick and mortar store in Southern California area, for less
than $70.

I need the make and model of the answering machine and the name of the
store in So Cal to purchase it.

The AT&T 1738 has a 3-minute outgoing message limit, per the manual:

It should be in stock at the Circuit City in Bakersfield, for $29.95:

The AT&T answering machine is what I need, but circuit city doesn't
carry it. You have to order it then pick it up. I need to pick this up

Thanks for accepting my work as your answer. Circuit City's
'check for availability' function didn't verify that they
had it in stock, so I couldn't be certain of that.

I browsed and searched the Best Buy site and didn't find the
AT&T 1738 listed, or any that weren't attached to a phone:

But they don't list every product they have, like most large

I assume you were able to call them and verify that they had
it. I'm glad it worked out.
