Here's the manual:

You will need to set a security code. When you're away you can call your home phone and enter the code to retrieve your messages. Hope this helps.

How do I retrieve messages when I am away from home? Model # EXA15580


Remote access away from home first you must enter the PIN code: 1) Enter the Answer Setup menu, and then the Security Code submenu 2) Enter a two-digit PIN code (01-99) using the number keypad (0-9). 3)Press OK
You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any touch-tone telephone. 1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps. 2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds 3)listen to the instructions from there (to play incoming messages, press zero-two)

How do i check messages on my answering machine away from home?


dial the phone (use a cell for test run/practice) ...once you hear the message press "*" (the asterisk key) and enter your 4 digit code (the default code is 1234 or sometimes 0000) you really should change this, this might have been done in the initial setup... read your manual for the exact commands (to save, delete, skip or repeat) to be use after/during retrieving msg....

Retrieving messages away from home.


Hello,

When you are away, you call your number and waiting for the welcome message (your message). When the machine invites you to leave a message you enter your secret code, the one you entered when you configured the machine. (Usually there is default, but since you don't have a manual there is no point guessing (although 123 may do the trick). Some older phones have a code sticker on the underside of phone.)

When the code is recognized the machine starts giving instructions press (number) to (do something).

Hope it helps.

I found the answer to my question on line. I dislike paying for information that should be available to me at no cost. I will instruct my tech person not to purchase your equipment any longer.

2 Press (ANSWER ON/OFF).

A voice guide will say: “Pleaseset the security code. To select, pressthe SKIP or REPEAT button. To enter,press the SET button”.

3 Set a two-digit number between 00 and 99 bypressing (SKIP/QUICK) or (REPEAT/SLOW). Press (SKIP/QUICK) to increase a number, or (REPEAT/SLOW) to decrease.

Each time you press (SKIP/QUICK)or (REPEAT/SLOW), the answering machine announces a number.

4 Press (SET/REC). The remote ID code (security code) is set,and you hear a long confirmation beep.

To change the remote ID code(security code), Enter a new remote ID code (security code). The new code will replace the old one.

Note: If a powerinterruption occurs, the remote ID code will not be erased.

Remote message retrieval


When you first installed your GE Digital Messaging System, you heard the code that was auto set for it. Once you are out and away from home, phone home and during the answering machine promp press # and then the promps will ask you for your 'pass word [code]. Please be careful as messages deleted by you, you may not beable to retrieve them. This machine doesn't run by cassette tapes.
~ hope the above helps.

Messages from out of town


First you have to set a security code. Program the secutity code at the machine by holding the Stop/Set key and the Next key down at the same time and follow the voice prompts. Once you set the security code, (it will be a 3 digit code) when you call home while away while your greeting is playing key in the 3 digit code (no star, no pound key, just the 3 numbers in the code) and it will take you to the message menu. Test it while you are at home with a mobile phone. Hope this helps.
