Re: How do you retrieve messages from another phone?

If you have not changed the code, it should be set to the default code 1-2-3. Call the phone with the answering machine, and as soon as your greeting starts press 123. You will then hear a menu. Press 1 to retrieve your messages. After listening to your messages, you can listen to the menu again, which will tell you that you can press 0 to delete your messages, among other choices. Cathy

SOURCE: need to retrieve lost or deleted message.

As a Expert that is not going to happen once these messages are deleted there gone for good, Even a data recovery center would not be able to help unless it was store on a magnetic tape of some sort.

What you got in this machine is NV-RAM Non voltile RAM random access memory. Meaning once the unit looses power or messages where deleted that area can no linger be accessed.

Hate to be the bad news breaker here makes me feel bad. But please show you support and leave a postive feedback and rating for your free answer today.

I have a DECT 6.0 and lost the manual. How do I retrieve messages remotely.

There are several models of DECT 6.0 phones by Panasonic. The manuals for most can be found by finding your model in this list: .

For the phone I know, the remote access code must be enabled. Dial the home phone number (with a touch tone phone) and at the greeting enter the remote access code. Then press 4 to hear new messages and 5 to hear all messages. Press 1 to repeat a message or 2 to skip a message. Press *4 to erase the message currently being played. *5 deletes all messages. When done press *# or hang up.

See the manual for more information. There is a default code listed in the manual.

I hope this helps.

Lost our manual, need to know how to retrieve messages from uniden telephone/answering machine remotely.

You don't give a specific model so I don't know if yours is there, but you can download manuals from Uniden. Check the list and pick your model if it's there, and you'll be back in business. If your model isn't listed, try downloading some similar model numbers. Often the basic information is very close between models.

Lost instruction book

Did you lose the ability to read the model number on the bottom of the base or phone?

Typical Panasonic remote retrieval of messages involve the use of a code, as simple as 11. So you call in, press *11 and follow the guide to play back messages.

Of course, the key is to getting a manual. If you're looking for a USA manual, try this link:
