This is from the manual and you have to reset it from the actual base so if you are away from home now you cannot change it

REMOTE ACCESS CODE
The Remote Access Code is preset to 500.
To review or change the code (at home)
1
Press F until the screen displays
the current Remote Access Code.
2 Use the number keys to enter a new code
(between 500 and 999, except the current
Priority Calling Code).
3 Press S when you are finished.
now here is the link to the manual

    i forgot to tell you that you could change it remotely (from another phone) but in order to do this you will need to know the current pin. So that is why I showed the solution that way and is the only way for you since you dont know the current pin.

    so just follow my actual solution and you will have no worries. If you are now on vacation maybe you can tell someone to go to your house and give them the instructions how to change it.

    this worked right?

  • Chuck Mar 01, 2009

    i beleive that my solution was very clear and shouldve got you going. Did the solution i give provide you with enough detail?

  • Chuck Mar 01, 2009

    also if someone can go to your house if you are away on vacation. just tell them them to do just #1 in my solution. This will display your current access code. Now if they tell you the current code now you can go into the manual and see how to change that remotely so no one else will know your access code. Now you can call from any phone and just input the current code and change it per the instructions in the manual

    CHANGING THE

    REMOTE ACCESS CODE REMOTELY

    1
    Access the system using the current

    Remote Access Code.

    2
    After the two-beep signal, press 99.

    You hear “Enter new code”

    3
    Enter your new Remote Access Code.

    4
    If a valid code is entered, the system

    announces the new Remote Access Code

    and beeps twice.

    5
    If an invalid code is entered, you hear

    five rapid beeps followed by two beeps.

    Repeat steps 2 and 3.



    jsut remember a valid code is between 500 and 999

How do I retrieve my voice mail when I'm away from home?


Go to the base unit.
scroll to the answering machine option.
Under there is a setting for your security key.

you can read what's there, or change it to your own two digit code.

when you call in, during the message, enter that two digit code and it'll go into messages. There's a "toll saver" mode so that the machine answers after two rings instead of 4, so that if you call and it rings 3 times, you know there's no new messages.

How do I retrieve my voice mail when I'm away from home?


this instruction may help you , if not a model number could help , but try these instructions . thanks

To operate from a remote location, use any touch-tone telephone, and follow these steps:
Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If the answering machine is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and series of beeping sounds.
During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering machine is off), press [0] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a Security Code or Personal Identification Number (PIN)" on page 57).
The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds. You may select a command from the following chart:
Remote Commands

Command 0 then 1
Repeat a Message*
Command 0 then 6
Answering Machine On
Command 0 then 2
Playback Messages
Command 0 then 7
Memo Record/Stop**
Command 0 then 3
Skipping a Message
Command 0 then 8
Greeting Record/Stop**
Command 0 then 4
Deleting a Message
Command 0 then 9
