AT&T/VTech posts owners manuals available for viewing online. you don't say which model answering machine you have, so I'm going to reference the current model.

Here is the URL:

http://telephones.att.com/docMgt/public/art/21714/1738_english_manualpart2.pdf

The steps for remote operation are on page 2/2. Highlights include:

Press "2" to play new messages
Press "*9" to end the call.

There are other options listed in the manual.

We are not able to pick up incoming calls the phone message states "make calls first"???


It might be that your pick up key is mislabeled/programmed. Press feature * 0 then the pick up key to identify what the feature is on the button. If it's not pick up, exit out of button inquiry press feature * 3 the button you want to program (pick up) then press feature 75 That will program it as a group pick up key

Vtech model CS6429-5 will not take messages and new voice mail message is always on the screen.When you go to play message it states you have no message.Is there a simple fix?


There seems to be two separate issues here.

Your phone will not take messages if it the answering system is turned off. See page 37 of the manual: http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals

You apparently have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

You might want to check the ring count on both systems. If they're both set the same, it's possible the phone company's voicemail system is picking up calls before your answering machine.

I am having problem with leaving messages. Everytime someone try to leave msg..voicemail say your memory is full, please hangup..but there were no messages in there..I also turned the machine off to see if...


Deleting messages (memory may be full).

Verify you do not have old messages on the the system. After the system plays all new messages, press Play/Stop again or from the handset Select 2:Play.If you find messages, delete them during or after they play.

After you listen to your messages, the voice message icon turns off. If it doesn't or if you can not receive messages, you should try to reset it: With the phone in standby, open the menu and select Global Setup; select VMWI Reset, then select Yes.

Make sure the Record Time is not set to Announce Only.

How do I change the voice mail greeting on my Avaya Partner 18 ?


I'm kinda new here, but why doesn't anybody say WHAT SYSTEM THEY HAVE????? It's kind of like saying I got a GM car. Uh..... Corvette or is it a Lumina?

ANYWAY, I'm presuming a Partner.

You better hope the previous guys left you the password.

Go to a station, dial 777 to get to the VM.
99# should prompt you for the password. Try 1234 or 1111.
If you get in, just listen for the prompts to guide you.
Good Luck

Can't login to voice mail.


You will need to restart your phone system. Unplug black cord. Count to 5 and then plug it back in.
If that doesn't help because password is unknown you will need to login to adminstrative mailbox and reset password on the mailbox.

NED Dterm Series E Message Light


I had this problem and finally found a number for Eschelon telecom (763 745 8000). This is what they had me do. Press the Speaker button and then enter 7732. This cleared the blinking light and inmail message. This happens when you receive an internal call and someone leaves you a message to call them back. Still can't figure out how to listen to the message. But this cleared the blinking light.

hope that helps.

Voice mail issue


Here is what is suppose to happen. Once you leave a message at Rogers, they are to send your phone a "stutter dial tone" signal back to your phone. When you phone gets this signal, it is to light your messag light. So we need to figure out if Rogers is sending the signal, and if your light is working. So, leave yourself a message. Give Rogers a minute or two to send the signal. Pick up your phone to make a call. Do you hear a "stuttery" type dial tone? If not, it sounds as if the Rogers system is not providing the signal. Okay, if your light is not on, then lets test the light by taking the Rogers VM out of the equation. Go to your Panasonic answering machine menu, and turn it on, then turn the number of rings set to 1, and save that. Now call the phone. It should answer after a ring or two, and your call should never make it to Rogers AM. Leave a message and see if your Panasonic answering machine takes the message and lights the light. If it does not light the light even though your message was recorded and saved, then you may have a bad light. If it lights the light, go back into your menu and turn the machine off, and look for any settings regarding using the "telephone company voice mail" or review your message light settings, etc. Hope this helps

I can not get my phone to pick up on the answering system when a caller is trying to leave a message


Try looking underneath the console of the answering machine. You must turn the answerer on on most machines and underneath there may be a switch to determine how many rings before it picks up as well.
