I need to know how to retrieve my messages when not home. I have the Southwestern Bell Freedom Answering Machine Model No. FA 972. Thank you.


Call your phone, let the outgoing message play when the machine answers, and wait for the beep. After the beep, enter the 3-digit security code you'll find on a sticker on the bottom of the machine. The machine will beep twice to let you know you entered the right code and it's ready for your commands.

Remote commands:

1# Plays messages in mailbox 1
2# Plays messages in mailbox 2
3# Deletes old messages (you need to play them all back first)
7# Starts recording a new outgoing message (press 7# again to stop recording)
9# Turn the system on or off
0# Monitor the room

While you're playing messages (you pressed either 1# or 2#) you have these commands:

3# Erase current message
6# Repeat previous message
7# Skip to next message
8# Repeat current message
## Stop playback

After your messages have played, you have 20 seconds to enter another command before the machine disconnects automatically.

You can download the manual here so you'll have a copy for future reference.

We don't know how to retrieve out messages from outside the house.


To play back messages remotely, first you'll need to have set up your two-digit security code (PIN). You can download a copy of the manual here which gives all the details. Once you've done that, here's how to use the system:

1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds. The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
3) Enter a command within 15 seconds. Each command thereafter must be entered within 2 seconds. These are the available commands:
  • 0 then 1 Repeat a Message*
  • 0 then 2 Playing incoming Messages
  • 0 then 3 Skipping a Message
  • 0 then 4 Deleting a Message
  • 0 then 5 Stop Operation
  • 0 then 6 Answering System On
  • 0 then 7 Memo Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 8 Greeting Message Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 9 Answer System Off
  • 1 then 0 Help
* For the Repeat a Message function, press 0 then 1 within about four seconds to repeat the previous message, or press 0 then 1 after about four seconds to repeat the current message.

**For the Memo Record and Greeting Message Record function, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, press 0 then 7, 8 or 5.

4) After the command has finished, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the chart above.
5) Hang up when you're done.

I have a DECT 6.0 and lost the manual. How do I retrieve messages remotely.


There are several models of DECT 6.0 phones by Panasonic. The manuals for most can be found by finding your model in this list: http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/PNAEndecaSearchCmd?N=779832097&Ne=&Ns=&Nr=12001&No=0&Ntt=75513&Ntk=CategorySearch&URL=vSupportSearch&cn=DECT+6.0+Phones&cmTag=true&catalogId=11017&storeId=15001 .

For the phone I know, the remote access code must be enabled. Dial the home phone number (with a touch tone phone) and at the greeting enter the remote access code. Then press 4 to hear new messages and 5 to hear all messages. Press 1 to repeat a message or 2 to skip a message. Press *4 to erase the message currently being played. *5 deletes all messages. When done press *# or hang up.

See the manual for more information. There is a default code listed in the manual.

I hope this helps.

Messages from out of town


First you have to set a security code. Program the secutity code at the machine by holding the Stop/Set key and the Next key down at the same time and follow the voice prompts. Once you set the security code, (it will be a 3 digit code) when you call home while away while your greeting is playing key in the 3 digit code (no star, no pound key, just the 3 numbers in the code) and it will take you to the message menu. Test it while you are at home with a mobile phone. Hope this helps.
