For the phone I know, the remote access code must be enabled. Dial the home phone number (with a touch tone phone) and at the greeting enter the remote access code. Then press 4 to hear new messages and 5 to hear all messages. Press 1 to repeat a message or 2 to skip a message. Press *4 to erase the message currently being played. *5 deletes all messages. When done press *# or hang up.
See the manual for more information. There is a default code listed in the manual.
Youy may be out of luck because you never entered your own personal code, but you can try entering "11" which is the default on many phones. You also have the option of starting at "01" and working towards "99" until you hit the right combo.
Rathger than rehash the instructions, here is a link to the operating manual for your phone. See pages 25 and 64.
The code it usually set up by you on the device, if you run through the set up procedure (Time Date, message) on your machine one of the steps is the remote access code, which the machine should read off to you at this point, you should change this to a code you can easily remember and not leave it at the factory defaut as this would leave your messages openly accessable to other parties.
Get remote access code from the machine get it by pressing set up button on answering machine. Go to another phone when machine picks up enter access code then enter *7 record new message press 5 when done then to end call enter *9
If you have not changed the code, it should be set to the default code 1-2-3. Call the phone with the answering machine, and as soon as your greeting starts press 123. You will then hear a menu. Press 1 to retrieve your messages. After listening to your messages, you can listen to the menu again, which will tell you that you can press 0 to delete your messages, among other choices.
