Once a message is deleted on a digital answering machine,unfortunately it is gone forever.To record a new outgoing message,there should be an ANNC button.Simply hold it down and it will prompt you when to speak.1 suggestion,never say your are not home.Just say something like we can't come to the phone right now... OMG! I just looked at mine and I think it's the same exact one.LOL.Holding down the Clock button will open a whole other set of options such as rings before answer,date time etc.Use the MEMO/REPEAT BUTTON(decreases numbers) and the ANNC/SKIP BUTTON(increase numbers) to change the numbers.Hold it down,set the setting,press the clock button again for next option and so on until you hit it and it repeats everything you set automatically when it's done.Your message and messages people leave WILL stay on it during a power outage,just have to reset time,but once something deletes,like I said it is gone forever.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg
I was just waiting for the voice commands after preswsing "set time" When I pressed set time It just said "answer the time" it should have said set time by looking at the LCD screen while pressing the left / right buttons. The screen shows you the hours & minutes change. I solved the problem myself. Thanks, George
I went to the southwesten bell freedom phone site on the web.
Found answering machines. My old machine was not listed, so I found instructions for a later machine.
The method for setting time was similar. I tried it and it worked fine.
Your high prices prompted me to be less lazy.
One thing Radio Shack's answering
machine [model number 43-3829], is NOT, is intuitive. But I guess you
know that already. ;-)
To set the date and time, perform
each of the steps below in quick succession, otherwise the machine will drop
you out of the process and you’ll have to start over.You have about five seconds between each step,
so try and make a mad dash for the finish line (Steps 4.-5.).
Setting Date and Time on Your Answering Machine: (To set Day…) 1.Turn the answering machine on and hold down the TIME

Press the >>/Time Set button for about 2 seconds. The system will announce "Monday" press the >>/Time Set again to choose the correct day. Press <</Time Check to change to hours. Select the correct hours by pressing the >>/Time Set, then press the <</Time check to change to minutes. I can't get the mail box 2 to operate either.
