Yes, there is an on/off for the answering machine portion of the phone. On default it's set to off til you set your settings and record your greeting.

SOURCE: we can call out but

Very strange, when someone calls in, even though it doesn't ring, can you answer it? If you have called ID enabled does it indicate that someone is calling?

Give me a bit more info here and I can definitely help, thanks!

SOURCE: i get my message to voice mail not to my answering

your service provider might come with voice mail system, you need to log on to your provider website and disable the voice mail or you can setup your provider voice mail to 4, 6 sound and your Digital Cordless to 2 sound before the voice mail pick up and you will see the difference.

KX-TG5621C changing number of rings


The KX-TG5621 isn't an answering machine. It will ring until you answer, some answering machine picks up, or the caller hangs up.

To change the ring count on your answering machine, refer to the documentation for that answering machine. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your answering machine.

Why won't the answering machine, when set to 'answer on' not record a message?.It goes to voice mail. Is my machine defective?


Maybe the answering machine is set to pick up at say"5 rings" and the voice mail is set to pickup at "4 rings" . Change the voicemail setting to a higher setting than the answering machine. That may be the problem.

The 29385GE1 isn't an answering machine. It will continue to ring until someone or something picks up or the caller hangs up. Please repost your question, giving the make and model of your answering machine.

THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD MESSAGES,ALL MESSAGES GOES INTO POOVIDERS VOICE MAILE, AS IF MY PHONE IS BUSSEY?????? I CHECKED AND RECORD TIME IS NOT SET TO ANNOUNCE ONLY ANS ALL MESSAGES HAVE BEEN...


This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

Can I use cordless phone answering machine even if I have voicema


You do not have to cancel the phone company voice mail service. You need to change the number of rings the phone uses to answer the voice mail.

For example, if the telephone company voice mail answers if 4 rings, set the telephone answering machine to answer in 3 rings or less.

Good luck.

Call will not Transfer to Voice Mail


Typically you want your phone system to ring your phones (say extension 10, 11 and 15) and then if no one answers after so many rings the call is transfered to the port the voice mail is on (let's say it's port 16) The voice mail is set to answer right away but does not "ring" until the call is transfered to it. This way (at 4 rings) if a call comes in on line 1 and you answer after 3 rings but a call comes in on line 2 at the same time, the first ring on line 2 will not make the total = 4 and set off the voice mail. I would guess the port at your voice mail is not set to ring and nothing is set up to transfer calls to your voice mail. Did you set this up yourself? How did you program the phone system?
