I'm sorry there isn't. Answering machines like this have very little ROM memory. After a powersurge and outage like last night, it wiped the whole memory chip. You can try there support page. It's actually pretty good.

How do I retrieve my voicemail?

Well, if it's an iPhone I may be able to help :) once you delete a voicemail from your log, it'll go to deleted messages. Scroll to the bottom of your voicemails for the deleted messages button and there you can retrieve all deleted voicemails. Now, if you deleted your voicemail from there too, then your best bet would be calling your phone company and see if they could possibly retrieve it. Again, this is for an iPhone, I'm not sure how it works on any other device. Hope that helps! :)

Hi there, Feature 983 gives me inactive feature message, can't forward calls, voice mail not working, etc. We had a short power outage the night before these symptoms began. Do I need to turn the power off...

Cycle the power on the voicemail system and that should solve the problem. If you still get the "Feature inactive" message, you may have to replace the voicemail power supply or get the voicemail system repaired.
Good Luck!
