The following is on Page 19....

REMOTE ACCESS
You can access your answerer from any touch-tone phone
by entering your 4-digit security code (the default security
code is 0123). The remote functions do not work with rotary
or push-button pulse-dialing phones. You can cut out the
wallet-size remote card near the back of the User’s Guide
so you know the touch-tone commands when you're
picking up messages from another location.
To access your answerer:
1. Call your telephone number.
2. After you hear the beep that follows the greeting,
enter your 4-digit security code. To bypass the
greeting, you can enter your 4-digit security code at
any time while the greeting is playing.
3. The unit plays the remote menu after the correct
security code has been entered. Menu selections can
be made at any time while the menu is playing.

NOTE: The unit answers on the 10th ring when it is
turned off or the memory is full. To access the
answerer, enter the 4-digit security code after the
beep. If memory is full, play messages and erase
some of them to restore memory. If the answerer is
off, press 2 to turn it on.
NOTE: After the unit plays the remote menu, it will
wait several seconds for a command, then disconnect

If I get this AT&T 1739 answering machine will it retreive messages when I am on the phone with someone else, also can I record my own message on it for my business


Without call waiting or a second line, callers will get a busy signal if you're already on a call. This happens at the switchboard; it doesn't matter what type of answering machine you have because the second call doesn't get that far.
You can record your own message on the 1739 but, as mentioned above, if you're already on a call then the second call never gets that far.

How can I get my messages from a remote access


Simply call your home phone (or the number attached to the machine), wait for your message to start and the press 0. After that enter your pin (you'll have to check your owner's manual for that, unless you already know your pin.) Follow the menu prompts from there to listen to your messages.

How to access messages remotely


While you are away from your home or
office, you can use a touch-tone phone,
or a pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket
tone dialer (available through your local
RadioShack store) to enter your PIN and
do any of the following:
• set the phone to answer or not
answer calls
• listen to your messages
• record a new outgoing message
• erase messages
• monitor the room where the phone
is located
Notes:
• You cannot remotely operate the
phone using its handset or another
telephone on the same line as the
phone.
• You can also listen to the message
recorded on Line 2 by making a call
to Line 1’s number (or vice versa).
USING THE TOLL-SAVER
If RING TIME is set to TS (toll-saver),
(see “Setting the Number of Rings” on
Page 15), the phone answers after three
rings if you have new messages (ones
you have not listened to). If there are no
new messages, the phone answers after
five rings. This gives you time to hang
up before the phone answers so you
can avoid unnecessary long-distance
charges.
Note: Toll-saver works only on the line
you called. If Line 1 has no new messages,
but Line 2 has one, the telephone
answers after five rings when you
call Line 1.
USING REMOTE
COMMANDS
Follow these steps to operate the phone
from a remote location.
Note: If you wait more than 15 seconds
between keypresses, the phone sounds
a long beep and hangs up.
1. Dial your phone number and wait for
the phone to answer.
2. If the phone is not set to answer
calls, it answers after about 10 rings
and sounds a series of beeps.
3. When the outgoing message begins
(or the phone sounds a series of
beeps), press #, then enter your PIN
within 2 seconds.
If the PIN is correct, the phone announces
the day and time, then it announces
the number of new and old messages.
The phone plays all new messages,
then beeps about every two seconds to
let you know it is ready to accept remote
commands.
Notes:
• If the phone does not respond, try
entering your PIN again. If you enter
an incorrect PIN three times, the
phone beeps and hangs up.
Remote Operation 27
• When the phone is operating from a remote location, it stops all answering functions
and rC appears on the display on the base. The phone resumes answering
functions when it is no longer in remote operation, if you have not turned it off.
• The remote playback of incoming messages is limited to 4 minutes. If you have
more messages after 4 minutes have passed, you must press # 2 again to listen
to the rest of the messages.
• When using remote operation, you can only delete the current message during
playback. You cannot delete all the messages stored at one time.
The following table shows the remote commands you can use.
Note: Remote operation stops when someone picks up the handset and presses either
LINE 1 or LINE 2 (whichever is flashing), or any phone on the same phone line.
Remote Commands
Press #
then (within
2 seconds:

1
Repeat current message during playback.
2 Play messages.
3 Skip current message during playback.
4 Delete current message during playback.
5 Stop playback, recording, and room monitoring.
6 Set the phone to answer or not answer calls.
7 Record or stop recording a new outgoing message.
8 Play the outgoing message.
9 Switch to the other line (Line 1 or Line 2).
0 Monitor the room where the phone is located for 15 seconds

Remote retrieval of messages


Call your phone number. After the greeting is finished and you hear the beep to leave a message push 123 on a touch tone phone and you will be given a list of things you can choose to do including listening to messages. 123 is the default security code unless the security code has been changed. Since you dont know how to retrieve messages Im assuming the default security code has never been changed.

If 123 is not the default security code and you dont know what the code is, you can change your code in the setup menu. You get to this by pushing the stop/set button on the answering machine and holding it for a couple of seconds. Since GE doesnt offer a downloadable manual for the 29878GE1 you should probably take a look at the manual for the 29875GE1 which is basically the same model with the addition of a digital message counter. Hope this helps.

TS stands for "Toll Saver"
It will ring 4 times if there are no new messages waiting, it will ring 2 times if there are new messages waiting.

This has two effects:

1) If you are calling home to check your messages, you can wait 2 rings. If there are new messages to check, then it answers immediately. If you make it to 3 rings, you know there are no new messages and you can hang up before you are billed for your call. This was more useful when you would use a pay phone or hotel phone to make a long distance call home. With a pay phone you would get your "quarter" back as long as there were no messages. With cell phones,it isn't as useful.

2) If you not home (which is implied by the fact that there are new messages waiting), it answers faster, so people calling you don't have to wait as long. This could also be viewed as a security risk... it tells your callers whether you are home or not.

It is for "toll saver".

If you are out of town and want to check your messages, you can call your machine and it will only pick up in 2 rings if you have messages waiting and 4 rings if you don't. This saves you the long distance charge when you call to check your messages. You will know after 2 rings wether you have messages or not and can hang up if you don't.

Here is a link to the pdf format owners manual from Uniden for this phone:

Remote Operation
You can check, play, or delete messages, even record a new greeting message from a
remote location (when you are away from home, or from another room using a
handset). Additionally, you can turn on or off your answering system remotely.
Remote access away from home
You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any touchtone
telephone.
1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering
system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is
off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a PIN Code"
on page 25).
3) The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages
stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For
help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
4) Enter a command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered
within 2 seconds. You may select a command from the following chart:
* For the Repeat a Message function, press 0 then 1 within about four seconds to
repeat the previous message, or press 0 then 1 after about four seconds to repeat
the current message.
**For the Memo Record and Greeting Message Record functions, the first time you
enter the corresponding command, the phone starts recording. If you want to
stop the recording, press 0 then 7, 8 or 5.
5) After the command has finished, 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 above.
6) When you are finished, hang up to exit the system. The answering system
automatically returns to standby.
