call your phone service and have them disconnect the voice mail and if they cant just remove that have them set there rings at like 9 since most phones only have up to 5 rings for the machine to answer.you will have to use there voice mail service to hear your message and then delete it but should be good after that. i have comcast and they said it would take 3 days to deactivate voice mail but told me how to get there so i can get rid of that flashing light, hope this helps you

Make sure that you are speaking clearly, No joke, but more answers could be notified by your land line seller, they should tell you exactly how to fix it, or provide you with a new one.

What you can do is go into the management console for your system and find the forwarding this is under extentions option 2 fwd/dnd select your extention number and on the bottom option FWD No Answer Time (s) set it to 10 or more and this will change the number of rings.

GE phone model 29581 does not seem to have instructions for resetting voice mail ...my phone just keeps ringing and won't go into voice mail


Voice Mail is not a function or feature of any telephone set,
nor does the GE 29581 phone have an Answering Machine
System that might be confused with Voice Mail.

VoiceMail is an option offered by some (not all) Telephone
Service Providers. Check with your Telephone Service
Provider to learn how to go about using theirs if it's available.
The original GE 29581 phone User's Manual is available at: http://www.manualslib.com/download/59417/Ge-29581.html

Good luck!

KX-TG5621C changing number of rings


The KX-TG5621 isn't an answering machine. It will ring until you answer, some answering machine picks up, or the caller hangs up.

To change the ring count on your answering machine, refer to the documentation for that answering machine. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your answering machine.

Does not wait for the 4th ring; sends call to verizon voice mail box after the second ring


Sounds like your service provider(Verizon) has your phone line setup to forward to voicemail on no answer after 2 rings. Call your service provider's customer service number and request that the number of rings for forward no answer be increased to at least 5, then your answer machine can receive and answer your calls after 4 rings but if your line is busy callers can leave a message with your Verizon voicemail service. If you don't want Verizon voicemail to answer any of your calls, you could have them disable the voicemail service. When you call the service provider have a recent bill ready because they may request your account number before they will make any changes.

When using my 29897GE1-A and receiving an incoming call, I see the number on my display and the caller receives a message (not my reorded message or voice) stating my phone number and then a beep which...


I don't believe it's a malfunction. See if your current phone company has a voice mail active for your phone. If that's the case then odds are your voice mail is picking up before your answering machine.

Unable to leave voice mail, says good-bye


I don't think the voice mail is going bad.

On my 4424D+, I can turn off voice mail.
I use this feature when I'm gone for an extended period of time so I don't come back to 100 VMs.

Dial into your voice mail.
Choose the prompt for Call Answer Mode. (Option 8 on my phone.)
Then choose the prompt for Record Mode. (Option 1 for me.) This allows callers to record voice mails on your line.

Talking on phone,someone calls in & leaves message, can't locate


Thanks for the opportunity to help with your problem. If you also have voice mail through your phone service provider, it's possible that while you are on the phone, the incoming call is "waiting" (meaning you are hearing a beep while you are still talking assuming you have call waiting). If you don't pick up the incoming call, your caller will hear your "voice mail" message and leave a message. However, your answering machine will not indicate that you have a message.

If my assistance was of any benefit whatsoever, please give me a rating so I can continue to improve my service. Thanks for using FixYa.com.

Alcatel 630 telephone


The phone rings once or twice but then it stops ringing despite the fact that there is still a ringing tone on the caller's phone.

Furthermore, the answering machine does not take the message as it does not click into answering mode. Any messages are left on the automated voice mail.

Thanks

Going to voicemail


The phone you have can go on several different Norstar phone systems and you can have several different types of voice mail. Your voice mail (and possibly the phone system) needs to have programming changes, not the telephone. Your first step is to determine which Nortel phone system you have and also what model voice mail. You will need manuals for the phone system and voice mail. Hopefully you already have a programming or administration manual for the voice mail. Someone should have gotten this information when the system was first installed but that could have been many years ago.

What happens when you are waiting for that time? Do you hear absolutely nothing? Instead of being sent directly to your voice mail box, it may be sending callers to a voice mail branch where you would normally have a recording "press 1 for this, 2 for that" If there is no recording the system will wait for a response that the caller has no idea of and usually replay the message 3 times before defaulting to your mailbox (in this case a blank message). That is my best guess with the information I have from you so far.
