Question about NorStar M7310 Corded Phone

External Answering Machine Hook up with M7310

I have M7310 telephone without the voicemail capabilities. We had a simple answering machine hooked up to a phone that worked for taking messages occasionally. However, former employee left with the answering machine. I tried to install one and it doesn't seem to want to pick up, like it's not recognizing the rings. I tried it on a phone that rings audibly twice, and one that rings constantly, and neither work. Any ideas?

Even though the plug that plugs into the wall on an M-7310 looks like the same plug that the answering machine has, it's function is completely different. The information passed on the single pair of wires is enough to make a 24 button 10 button or 8 button system phone work, has no ringing voltage or dial tone for a single line device like your answering machine.

A Nortel system has ports that have that information, but most likely the answering machine was installed BEFORE the phone system lines, which means it only answered the first line.

Try plugging your answering machine into the EXACT location it was before.

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.
