The Thomson folks said to reset the phone. Here's how: unplug power, then the phone line, then remove the batteries. Wait 10-15 minutes. Replace the batteries, then the phone line and finally, the power.

Note: We have 2 phones with these two lines and had to reset both of them to clear the "busy" on Line 1.

V-tech display shows A


That indicates that your machine is set to "Announce" mode where it plays an outgoing message but will not record incoming messages. If you want it to record incoming messages then you'll need to switch to "Answer" mode.
Since you declined to specify the model of your VTech 5.8GHz system I'm afraid I can't tell you how to switch modes. You can enter the model of your system into the search box here to download a copy of the manual.

As bsmither said, how voice mail is accessed is very dependent on your phone company and how they've set things up. They would be the best place to ask about any problems you're having there.

As for programming the voice mail buttons on the 25204, I was confused by that one as well until I finally figured it out. Specializations aside, they're just speed dial buttons, and are programmed in exactly the same way as the ones along the right side of the phone. RCA could have documented that detail better than they did.

In my case, with Vonage, I just programmed the buttons with the numbers for the lines that they're associated with. When they dial and I'm connected to the voice mail system, I'm prompted for my VM password, which I then enter manually.
