I accidentally deleted an answer I wanted to hear on an AT&T 1719 answering machine. I read the manual and noticed that messages cannot be recovered. Who makes an answering machine with an "undelete"...


Once you delete a message on a consumer answering machine, it's gone. The only option is to save all messages until the machine signals that it's out of room. Even with a tape-based answering machine or professional voicemail systems, once you erase a message, it's gone.

finish, press 5# to end remote access.

you have to set the answering machine to accept remote access. Then anytime when you call home and the message is playing you can enter the machines' remote access number to retrieve your messages.
