ANSWERING MACHINE RECORDING SAYS"MAILBOX NOT SET UP BY SUBSRIBER WHEN SOMEONE WANTS TO LEAVE A MESSAGE


This sounds like a message generated by your telephone company's voicemail system. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. And, depending on the settings, it may pick up the call before your answering machine does. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

I want to use this for a business to let customers know our business hours but don't want them to leave messages


Many answering machines have an "announce" mode where the machine plays a message but does not accept messages, which is exactly what you want. Since you declined to specify the model of your GE answering system, I can't tell you how to set it to that mode. Select the model from the list at

A man answers my phone with "The answering machine is off. Please leave a message" Sometimes it leaves a message and sometimes it doesn't. The menu options I get will not restore it to my...


"The answering machine is off. Please leave a message" (sic) This doesn't make sense.... how can one leave a message if the answering machine is OFF! Unless it goes to a voicemail etc? It's just not possible?

I suggest that you use your manual, and reset up your system again, perform a Factory Reset and then set up what you need to do again, this will clear any erroneous data that maybe causing any problems.

Whats seems to be happening is that the default "Voice" is being activated instead of the recorded message? I think you need to do it again.

After you have done this, record your message and set the answering machine to ON. Then test it from another phone.

NOTE sometimes with answering machines, if they ring more than a certain number of times, without being answered, the AP may switch OFF, ON or indeed do "Other" functions" that may be assigned, so ensure that this "Feature' isn't active or enabled or whatever.

Instead of going to my message the phone rings out and and goes to voice saying sorry we can not take your message please try again later


It may be similar to the problem I had with the wireless home phone with answering machine not taking messages when had the answering machine set to 12 rings before answering. Found the sim card (my wireless system) auto response would answer first. Fixed it by reducing time to 6 rings and answering machine now comes on first. This might resolve it for you.

When people leave me a message - the answering machine does not show that I have a message. The person calling hears the greeting - leaves a message, but I do not receive the message.
