AT&T's telephone website has manuals (in pdf form) for a vast selection of AT&T/Lucent branded consumer telephone products.

Here is the link to the 2462:

According to page 31, there is a button on the base that will allow you to disable the answering machine for each individual telephone line.

I live in the USA. My caller ID stopped displaying incoming calls. Last incoming call on the display says 12.2.14. Even when phone is ringing, caller ID does not display name, number,time,date,etc.


Call Phone Co and see if you are programed for the Caller ID feature. In some areas this feature cost more. Whether or not you are paying for it, it may not be programmed in their switch for you?

My aswering machine won't allow people to leave a message


There are usually two reasons for this if the machine is on. 1) The memory is full. In that case, delete some messages. 2) The unit is set to Announce Only. This may be the default if you haven't set a personal greeting.

Please add a comment with the model of your machine for additional information on how to change the incoming message options.

(Make sure that your phone/phone line are receiving calls. (Check for dial tone, try calling the number).)

For some older phones and answering systems, the Announce/Number of Rings before picking up was set by a switch on the back or the side of the base. Most newer phones let you set this in the Menu. Try under General Settings > Answering System or an Answering System menu item. (Again without knowing the model, I can't be absolutely sure of the menu and sub-menu lists.)

I hope this helps.

Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) light stays on since VoIP


There maybe different MWI options available in the phone's set up menu on the base unit. If so, see if the different options perform differently. Your phones are probably set to "FSK" (frequency shift keying) for MWI but IIRC, U-Verse uses the "Stutter" option. Also, in addition to talking to the installer, call ATT tech support. If the problem is in the signalling they may now have programming options on their end to resolve it.

I have an answering serice from verizon and want to stop my GE #29460GE2-A 2 line phone from anwsering. Allan......... alarch2@gmail.com or (410) 486-8953


Change the settings for the messaging on your phone, most cordless phones you have to go into the menu, find the menu option that has something to do with answering service, or messaging, then just branch through those options until you find the option that asks how many rings you want before the answering machine picks up. Turn this to the max amount available, or off(if available here). if that doesnt work, there should also be a option to turn it off all together.
Of course, if it is not in the phones handset menu options, there might be a switch on the base that has the option to change the number of rings before picking up.
p.s. you shouldnt post your phone number for public view online. with that alone it is possible to find your exact address, and tons of other things about you, from how many people live in your house, to your ss#.
Hopefully my reply helps you, I am a Cordless Phone expert, but don't know the settings on a random model without actually holding it. Good Luck with it though.

No messages!


I know that this is an old problem, but there is an On/Off switch on the base that allows you to enable/disable the answering machine for each telephone line.

Make sure that the switch's setting is correct.

Here is the link to the 2462's owner's manual. Look at page 31:
