Sprint RadioShack answering machine CAT. NO.: 43-5812

I purchased at an auction, the above described answering machine. I would like to set up a new voice mail and am unable to do so. Could you please give suggestions? It is an old model, but seems to work alright as I can listen to the old message by pressing the ANNC button. There is on the machine a code button, clock, annc, change, delete, repeat/scan, stop, skip/scan and play button. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you D

Your question is not clear enough, You can check it out in the user manual. I just guess you are asking recording your personal annoucement.

Before using this answering system, you
should record the announcement (up to
one minute long) that callers will hear
when the system answers a call. If you
choose not to record an announcement,
the system answers with a prerecorded
announcement: “Hello. Please leave a
message after the tone.”
1 Press and hold "Annc/Skip". The system
beeps. Speak toward the microphone
normally, from about nine inches away.
While you are recording, the Message
Window displays —.
2 To stop recording, release "Annc/Skip".
The system automatically plays back
your announcement.
To review your announcement, press
and release "Annc/Skip".

Set number of rings


If you have the Digital Answerer in White with Extended Recording Time TAD-3808, then slide the Ring Select switch on the right side of the unit to the desired number of rings. TS = toll saver and answers after 2 rings if there are new messages; , otherwise, it will answer after 4 rings.

All of the Radio Shack answering machne manuals can be accessed here: http://support.radioshack.com/productinfo/ProductResults.asp?Name=Telephone_Answering_Devices&ID=002004 .

For the 3808, see http://support.radioshack.com/productinfo/DocumentResults.asp?sku_id=43-3808&Name=Telephone%20Answering%20Devices&Reuse=N for the manuals.

I hope this helps.

I believe you are talking about the modular phone line. You can buy those at places like RadioShack, Walmart, Shopko.....for under $10. If you bring the answering machine into a place like RadioShack they can help you out.

Can not set no of rings on old sprint answer machine SP818 please help


Ring Select and Toll Saver

Use Ring Select to choose how many times the line will ring before the
system answers a call. Set for 2, 4 or Toll Saver. When you set the
system for Toll Saver, it answers after four rings when you have no new
messages, and after two rings when you have new messages.

1. Press and hold [SET UP] for about two seconds. The system announces
the current ring selection.

2. Press and release [ANN/SKIP] or [MEMO/REPEAT] until the system
announces your ring selection.

3. Press and release [PLAY/STOP] to exit
-OR-
Press and release [SET UP] to change the Remote Access Code (follow
Steps 2-5 under "Remote Access Code").

Radio Shack Sprint SP-812 Answering Device can't retrieve messages


Follow the below link for your manual,
http://support.radioshack.com/support_phones/39764.htm

The F it is displaying means current memory is full, I would reccomend playing your messages and then recording them onto a portable cassete recorder, or even play it back and record it onto your pc if you have a mic.

hope this helps
