What is the specific model of your phone. Typically there is a setting in your machine to set the "Recording Time". Uniden typically you can set to 1 minute, 4 minutes, or "Anounce only". This last one is probably what your is set to.

Typically pressing the "Menu" key will go to each setting for each time you press the button. Press menu until it announces "Recording Time" Then select 1 minute or 4 minute using the "Select" Button.

You can get most of the manuals for your uniden phones at :

Select your paticular phone and see if they have the phone listed.

What does a stand for on the vtech answering machine


It means your system is set to "Announce" mode instead of "Answer." In this mode it announces you're not available to take the call but does not allow the caller to leave a message. If you want the system to take a message, switch to "Answer" mode.

Enter the model of your VTech 5.8GHz system into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

Answering system doesn't work.


Your system is set to "Announce" mode, where it plays an announcement but does not record a message. You want "Answer" mode, where the system allows the caller to leave a message.

Since you didn't give the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch modes. Enter the model into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

The answer phone will pick up the call, but will not record any message that the caller leaves.


Apparently your answering machine is in announce mode, not record mode.

To change the mode:
Step 1: Determine the make and model of your answering machine.
Step 2: Repost your question, being sure to include the information from Step 1.

I can not get my phone to pick up on the answering system when a caller is trying to leave a message


Try looking underneath the console of the answering machine. You must turn the answerer on on most machines and underneath there may be a switch to determine how many rings before it picks up as well.
