Here is a link to a similar model: http://www.swbfreedomphone.com/ib/ibansw/fa970.pdf Here is what it says: TONE REMOTE OPERATION Remote Security Code To access answering functions from an outside line, you will need to enter the three digit security code located on the bottom of your unit. Write this number on the Remote Access Card, which you can keep in your wallet. Remote Turn On If you forget to turn on your unit: 1. Call your unit from a touch-tone phone. 2. Wait 12-14 rings until the machine answers. 3. The FA970 will automatically answer by playing your greeting. You may hang up the phone, and subsequent calls will be answered. Remote Message Playback 1. Call your unit from a touch-tone telephone. 2. After your FA970 answers, it plays the outgoing greeting and beeps once. Dial your three digit security code within 20 seconds after the beep, pressing and holding each digit for 1-2 seconds. Allow a 2 seconds interval between each digit. 3. Your FA970 will sound one beep to indicate the code was entered correctly. (If there are no beeps, enter your code again.) 4. You can press the following buttons on your keypad: Option Press Playback Mailbox 1 Messages (1) Playback Mailbox 2 Messages (2) Record Memo Message (3) Record New Greeting (8) Turn Off Answer Mode (9) If you press ?1? or ?2? (to playback messages), you have the follow options: Option Press Erase Current Message (0) Repeat Current Message (4) Repeat Previous Message (4) repeatedly Stop Message Playback (5) Skip to Next Message (6) To SAVE messages, hang up the telephone. Note: Your FA970 will sound a series of beeps if there are no messages. Remote Record New Greeting If you press 8 (to record new greeting): 1. When you hear a beep, begin recording your new greeting (up to 30 seconds). 2. When you have finished recording your new greeting, press (5). The unit will beep, and the new greeting will playback to you. 3. Hang up the telephone. Remote Record Memo If you press 3 (to record memo message): 1. Within three seconds of pressing ?3?, press ?1? or ?2? to select Mailbox 1 or Mailbox 2. Otherwise, the memo will be recorded in Mailbox 1. 2. When you hear a beep, begin recording your memo (up to 60 seconds). 3. When you have finished recording your memo message, press (5). 4. The corresponding Mailbox message count will be increased by one. To Retrieve Messages when Recording Memory is Full 1. When the message capacity is full, the unit will sound 3 beeps after answering the phone. 2. Within 20 seconds after the 3 beeps, dial your 3 digit security code. 3. Your FA970 will sound one beep to indicate the code was entered correctly.

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.

My answer phone is full up,but it has my mum on there who died recently,i only want to delete all the other,s but not my mum,but i cant see a way to do this can any clever person help me please xx


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

First, I'm sorry for your loss. I recently lost my mother, too.

Let's see if I can help. First, you need to know if you can call your answering machine from another number and remotely listen to the messages. You'll need your answering machine's user guide if you don't know the code to enter when your answering machine answers the call.

If you can remotely access the machine from another phone, you'll need a call recorder. These can be found at most local electronic shops or eBay. (See link below)

(I noticed you referred to *********** as "my mum " - so I'm guessing you may be in the UK.?) I'm in the US. So, this link is to eBay in the US but it will give you an idea what you're looking for.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Phone-Recorder-record-telephone-call-pc-computer-bug-/200585416756?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2eb3d29034

or here:

http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=call+recorder&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Now, with a voice recorder, you can call your answering machine remotely from another phone - enter the code to retrieve your messages - record the messages you want to keep - and erase what's on the answering machine.

HOW TO RETREIVE MY MESSAGE FROM ANOTHER PHONE?


Most answering machines have a 'remote code' to access messages via remote. (from another phone line when you aren't at home.) Look for the manual or look on the bottom of the unit itself.

If you do not see a code for it. Or have the manual, find your model online and the manufacturer should have the user manual online for free. It should provide the code for remote access.

Typically, you call the phone, when the answering machine picks up, you would dial the security code and the answering machine will then start playing your messages.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

How to retrieve messages from the answering machine ..remotely


Remotely Operating Your Answering Machine

Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If the answering machine is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and series of beeping sounds.
During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering machine is off), press [0] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a Security Code or Personal Identification Number (PIN)" on page 54).
The answering machine 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.
Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds.
