Set number of rings


If you have the Digital Answerer in White with Extended Recording Time TAD-3808, then slide the Ring Select switch on the right side of the unit to the desired number of rings. TS = toll saver and answers after 2 rings if there are new messages; , otherwise, it will answer after 4 rings.

All of the Radio Shack answering machne manuals can be accessed here: http://support.radioshack.com/productinfo/ProductResults.asp?Name=Telephone_Answering_Devices&ID=002004 .

For the 3808, see http://support.radioshack.com/productinfo/DocumentResults.asp?sku_id=43-3808&Name=Telephone%20Answering%20Devices&Reuse=N for the manuals.

I hope this helps.

Hi!

First of all you need to set the Language which allows you to set the answer in either English or in Spanish voice menu mode. Once the language is set, all voice menu, including the ones used in Remote access mode, will be switched to the selected language.

2. The answering machine announces, "For English, press NEXT, press SET to continue (in English). Para espanol, oprima PREVIO, oprima PROGRAMAR para continuar (in Spanish)".
3. Press NEXT, answerer enters English voice menu mode. If PREVIOUS is pressed, answerer enters Spanish voice menu mode. If SET is pressed, answerer remains in the current language mode. In any case, the answerer enters to the TIME/DAY menu.
NOTE: Language can only be set when the user is in physical access of the unit. When you are running in Remote Access mode, the language cannot be changed and will remain in the language you’ve previously set.10
Setting the Time/Day : This setting allows you to set the current time and day for the Time/Day stamp attached to each message.
Hour : 1. When you have completed setting the Language, the unit will enter the TIME/DAY menu. The answering system announces, "Time (the current time and day setting) To set hour, press next...press set to continue."
2. To change the hour, press and release the NEXT or PREVIOUS button and the answering system announces an hour, such as "12am, 1am, 2am," or "12am, 11pm, 10pm."
3. After choosing the hour, press and release the STOP/SET button to store the hour. The answering system enters the Minute menu.
Minutes : 1. The answering system announces, "(the current minutes setting). To set minutes, press next...press set to continue."
2. To change the minutes, press and release the NEXT or PREVIOUS button, and the answering system announces a minute such as "1, 2, 3" or "59, 58, 57."

Wanted to know if i can check messages by calling in


CLICK HERE for the user manual.

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


Thank you for using Fixya - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

You did record a message on the answerer, didn't you? Mine displayed that until I recorded the outgoing message for the answerer. You do not need any service from your phone provider. The answerer in the base unit simply records the caller's message when you don't answer after a set number of rings. The manual tells you how to name the handset, which is a nice feature if you don't wish to use "unit 1, unit 2, etc".
