All messages have been deleted but message button keeps binking?????//


Most of the time your home phone service has a digital voice mail like your cell phone does. If the answering machine is set for an amount of rings that is too long the digital voice mail service will answer before your machine. The new cordless phone indicators do show messages on your digital voice mail as well as the answering machine. Depending on your home service, most of the time when you press talk and you hear a different non standard dial tone(mine pulses 3 times before going to solid dial tone) you have a digital message. You need to delete this message before the indicator light will stop flashing. Then set up you digital voice mail for a longer pickup time! This should get rid of this problem.

How do you set the answering machine or voice mail on this phone?


First make sure the answering machine is on; press the On/Off button to turn it on and off. To set a message to be heard by those calling in: press and hold Skip/Annc. Begin speaking when A shows in the message window. Speak from about 9 inches away from the phone. Messages must be more than 3 seconds and less than 3 minutes long.

Press Prog/Mem and then Skip/Annc to hear the current message. Press and hold Setup until you hear the current setting (Selected announcement is A or Announce Only). Use Skip/Repeat to change the setting. No one will be able to leave a message if Announce Only is on.

After you have held the Setup button, as above, press Setup additional times to set the number of rings before the machine answers and the remote access code among other features.

To set the date and time, press and hold Clock for 1 second. Use the Skip button to advance the current digit; the Repeat button will subtract one from the current value. Press Clock again to advance to the next value to change (day of week, hour, minute, second).

Press Play to hear new messages; press and hold Play to hear all messages. Press Repeat to repeat the current message. Press Repeat twice to hear the last message. Hold Repeat to slow the message playback.

Delete a message by pressing Remove during playback; press Remove twice to delete all messages (if there are no new messages). A blinking F indicates the memory is full and messages must be deleted.

I hope this helps.

Code to retrieve messages


Here are the instructions you need to follow:

If you want to be able to play your messages from a remote location, you need to enter a two-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) code (01-99).
To select a PIN, perform the following steps:
1) With the phone in standby, press [menu/clock] twice.
The system announces "Security code," and the current PIN code is announced as it is displayed on the base.
Then the system announces the instructions for setting the PIN code.
2) Press [volume/select/ ] or [volume/select/ ] until the desired number appears.
3) Press [set] to select the PIN code. You hear a confirmation tone, then the announcement "Security code" followed by the new PIN code is announced. After a few seconds, the system announces "To set ring time, press menu again."
Note: The PIN code is set to "80" at the factory.

Remote Operation
When you are away from home, you can operate your answering machine with any touch-tone telephone. Use this function to check for recorded messages, to play or delete messages, even record a new greeting message.
1) Call your telephone number.
2) During the greeting message, press [0] and enter your PIN code
3) The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. Then you hear "To play incoming message, press zero two. For help, press one zero."
4) You may continue to listen to the voice prompts, or you may select a command from the following chart:
Command Function Command Function
[0] then [1] Repeat a Message [0] then [6] Answering Machine On
[0] then [2] Play Incoming Messages [0] then [7] Memo Record/Stop*
[0] then [3] Skip a Message [0] then [8] Greeting Message Record/Stop*
[0] then [4] Delete a Message [0] then [9] Answering Machine Off
[0] then [5] Stop Operation [1] then [0] Voice Prompts
* For Memo Record and Greeting Message Record functions, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it
starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, enter the command again.
Note: Once you enter the remote access menu, you must enter a command within 15 seconds, or the
answering machine automatically hangs up and returns to standby.
5) After all of the voice prompts have been played, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the
command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the chart.
6) When you are finished, hang up to exit the system. The answering machine automatically returns to standby.

Turn on the Answering Machine Remotely
If you have forgotten to turn on your answering machine, you can turn it on remotely from any touch-tone telephone.
1) Call your telephone number.
2) Wait ten rings until the system answers. You hear intermittent beeps.
3) Press [0] and then enter your PIN code. The answering machine announces the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming message, press zero two. For help, press one zero."
4) Press [0] then [6] to turn the answering machine On. You hear the outgoing message and a confirmation tone.
5) Hang up the phone; subsequent calls will be answered by the system.

Wish to use the telephone company answering system how do I turn


There is a button marked "ANS ON/OFF" right on the base to control the answering machine function. The display shows "--" when answering is off, otherwise it shows the number of messages.

The manual says you can delete messages one at a time from the handset, or all at once or one at a time from the base.

You can download the manual from GE here:

I had the same problem.
Here is the solution that I received from Motorola tech support:

1.Delete all messages
2. Unplug the power and re-apply power
3. Quickly press and release << (previous message) and >> (next message) buttons together while the "Press review to receive setup instructions" message is playing.
The display will change from a segment scanning clockwise to anti-clockwise
4. Quickly press and release the On/Off button before the "Press review to receive setup instructions" ends. The display will change to a square scanning clockwise.
Note, this goes by quickly. I had to repeat steps 1-4 a couple of times before I got it right.
5. Press and release the delete button. The unit will emit a beep.
6. Press and release the on/off button. The unit will emit another beep and annouce "Press review to receive setup instructions"
Done!
