How do I access my messages when I am out of town. I have a Panasonic DECT 6.0 Thank you. ginny


Call your phone while you're away, and when your message starts to play enter your remote code. After that, you use the keypad on the phone to control message playback, record a new greeting, etc.

"DECT 6.0" is a generic term for the cordless phone technology, and not your phone model number. You'd find that on a label on the back or bottom of the base unit. Without a specific model I can't look for a manual and give details, but if you have the model listed you can download the manual from Panasonic here. It gives all the steps to set up your remote code and the commands to use. If you have a different model phone you can look for your manual at Panasonic's support page.

For the model listed above, the default remote code is 111. The list of remote commands is

Key Remote command
{1} Repeat message
(during playback)*1
{2} Skip message (during
playback)
{4} Play new messages
{5} Play all messages
{6} Play greeting message
{7} Record greeting
message
{9} Stop recording
Stop playback*2
Start voice guidance*3
{0} Turn answering system
off
{*}{4} Erase message
currently playing
{*}{5} Erase all messages
{*}{6} Erase greeting
message (during
greeting message
playback)
{*}{#} End remote operation
(or hang up)

Maybe this list works for your phone too.

Hello I was wondering how to use the VM acess with my phone. I want to be able to call from a different number and listen to my messages how do I go about doing so


I have a similar model. You need to configure a remote access code on the phone. Then, when you call your phone, you enter the pin after your message starts.

(From the manual)
Using a touch-tone phone, you can call your phone number from outside and access the unit to listen to messages or change answering system settings. The unit's voice guidance prompts you to press certain dial keys to perform different operations.

Remote access code:
A 3-digit remote access code must be entered when operating the answering system remotely. This code prevents unauthorized parties from listening to your messages remotely. The default
setting is "111".

Important:
To prevent unauthorized access to this product, we recommend that you regularly change the remote code.
1 {MENU} {#} {3} {0} {6}
2 Enter the desired 3-digit remote
access code.
3 {SAVE} {OFF}

Below is a link to the manual. The remote access instructions are on page 35.

BT phone and broadband from sky...ok i cant make or receive phone calls.bt say that they checked the line and it shows no faults..ive tried different phones on line but no joy, interactive on sky box also...


Not a total solution, but a reason , perhaps.

I have both BroadBand and Telephone from BT.

In the past they always billed you with one bill. also if your phone was cut off due to lack off payment so the BB went off also.

they have now split their billing system - and services- into two separate identities, meaning that the phone could be cut off for calls yet your Broadband will still work and vice versa.

So, i would say the problem lies with BT , even though you have ordered your BB from Sky they still have to ask BT to setup your service at the exchange. It seems that they have not checked your service for both BB and phone.

I recently had my phone cut off (BT's 'direct debit 'accident'!) but my BB worked throughout the fortnight it took them to resolve where my paid bill money was!..

So. Call your main service provider (that would be Sky if you get no bills from BT) and tell them your phone service has most certainly NOT been activated.

I recently spent 17 hours over 3 days speaking to 23 customer assistants, before reaching a manager who resolved a similar issue for me at BT.

Under their new setup BB personel cannot see your phone account and phone personel cannot see your BB account - and we get charged over 1/3rd more for this mayhem . their reason explained to me as "having everything on one bill was confusing some customers so you now have two accounts and two bills for everything" !!

your socket is fine as you have enough connection for BB which takes more bandwidth than a voice line.

Basically you have some corporate customer service red tape to hack through.

Good luck
