The A means that your machine will play an announcement but will not record a message. You need to change the answering mode.

Press (SET/REC)
Press (REPEAT/SLOW)
Press (SET)
Press (SKIP) or (REPEAT) repeatedly to select the mode you want, then
press (SET)

There was a previous post on this which includes a copy of the user guide. See this link.

All lines are busy


They probably are, then you need to wait a few minutes and keep trying. Or send a letter and let the person or company know that you are having a problem connecting by phone. I have called different companies at different times, and sometimes you can wait a half hour or more trying to get through. Just know that in most businesses, Mondays and Fridays are always the busiest day of the week. So try your call on Tues, Wed., or Thurs., when not so busy.

My anservin machines have a A LETTER ON SCREEN


This indicates that you're in Announce mode, not Answer mode.

I wish I could tell you how to switch modes, but I can't without knowing the model of your Uniden system. Select the model from the list beginning at http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=cordlessphones_mnl to download a copy of the manual.

Can not get messages on my answering machine, show the letter a


Your machine is set to "Announce" instead of "Answer" mode. The announce mode merely plays an outgoing message but does not record any incoming messages.

Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech 5.8GHz cordless system I can only suggest you enter it into the search box here to download a copy of the manual to learn how to switch modes.

When simeone calls, it won't record their message


This was a new phone I was using,& didn't realize I had voice mail on it. When it rang 2 times, it recorded the message before I answered on the 3rd. or 4th ring, giving me a dial tone. It is all fixed now.

Thank you
