Playing Your Messages
1) With the phone in standby mode, press the
(play/stop) key. The system announces the
number of new and old messages. The LED
displays the number of new messages, and the
number flashes. The day and time that each
message was received is announced after the
message is played.
2) When all new messages have been played, you
hear a confirmation tone and an announcement
“End of messages.” The message counter
displays the total number of stored messages,
and the system returns to standby

    Remote Operation
    When you are away from home, you can operate your answering system with any touch-tone
    telephone. Use this function to check for recorded messages, to play or delete messages,
    even record a new greeting message.
    1) Call your telephone number.
    2) During the greeting message, press 0 and enter your PIN code (see page 36).
    3) The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in
    memory. Then you hear "To play incoming message, press zero two.
    For help, press one zero."
    4) You may continue to listen to the voice prompts, or you may select a command from the
    following chart:

    For your convenience
    remote operation cards
    are provided for you to
    use while away from
    home (located in the
    back of this manual

    Once you enter the
    remote access menu,
    you must enter a
    command within 15
    seconds, or the
    answering system
    automatically hangs up
    and returns to standby.

    any touch-tone telephone.

How do I retrieve message when away from my home


Simply call home using a touch-tone phone:
While listening to the answering machine greeting,
key in your chosen Remote Code using the keypad
on your calling phone and your new messages will
be played for you.

The Remote Code was chosen via a handset at home:
press [menu]
scroll to "Ans. Setup"
press [select]
scroll to "Security Code"
press [select]
enter the two-digit code of your choice,
press [select] ( chirps ) press [END]

Remote *management* of the answering machine is
further described in the owners' manual. To obtain
a replacement manual, you'll need the precise model
number of your phone: this is found on a small sticker
underneath the battery inside the handset. Take this
model number (eg, D1680) to www.manualslib.com
and you can download a free copy of the manual.
Good luck!

3) Press [set] to select the PIN code. You hear a confirmation tone, then the announcement "Security code" followed by the new PIN code is announced. After a few seconds, the system announces "To set ring time, press menu again."
Note: The PIN code is set to "80" at the factory.

I have a voice mail but i dont know how to check it


Hello,
Your telephone company should tell you how to retrieve messages. You may want to look in the introductory pages of the phone book.
If it is an aswering machine you have, the procedure is different: Every phone has a remote access code (on a sticker at the bottom for older models) or number set by default if phone has a digital screen. You find the default number when you configure the phone.
To hear messages when you are away, you dial your number and wait for the answering machine to activate. When you are instructed to leave a message, enter your remote access code and listen to the instructions. One option will enable you to hear your messages.
Hope it helps.

We have a uniden cordless phone with answer machine. we need to retrieve our messages while away how do we call our answer machine to hear messages?


Hello,
When you configured your telephone you must have come across the Remote Access option, in which you chose a secret remote access code or accepted the one by default. If you don't remember that then you should reconfigure it and choose a secret code different from the factory default.
While you are at it configure the Toll Saver option too. (more about that later)

When you are away you dial your home number and when you telephone invites you to leave amessage, enter your Remote Access code. You will be read various options, among which there is the Hear New Messages option (if there are new messages). After hearing your messages you hang up. and you will be charged by you telco.

With Toll saver On, you telephone answers after 2 rings, if there are new messages, and after 4 rings if there are NO new messages. If your telephone does not answer after the second ring (if you hear the 3rd ring) that means you have no new messages, and you can hang up without being charged by your telco.

Hope it helps.
Rate the solution.

How do I retrieve my voice mail when I'm away from home?


Go to the base unit.
scroll to the answering machine option.
Under there is a setting for your security key.

you can read what's there, or change it to your own two digit code.

when you call in, during the message, enter that two digit code and it'll go into messages. There's a "toll saver" mode so that the machine answers after two rings instead of 4, so that if you call and it rings 3 times, you know there's no new messages.
