Dial your telephone number from any touch-tone telephone. When the answering system answers, enter the two-digit remote access code (19, unless you have changed it).

How do i transfer a call to another extension?

Unless your phone is connected to a TAW-848 or higher, your extensions are numbered 101-124 maximum, or 21-36. Try going to any phone but the main one and dialing either 101 or 0 and look at the display. You'll figure out your 3-digit extensions. Now just press TRANSFER and dial that 3-digit number. The outside call is put on hold when you press transfer, so there's no need to use the HOLD button.

As an alternative, you can press HOLD, putting the outside line on hold, and dial the 3-digit number into the intercom dial tone and announce the call for line number x. Or, dial the page code 330 and announce to all phones for the person to pick up line x.

I've been trying to call my friend that's out of state for 2 days now. From a landline at my hotel and my cellphone. It says the verizon customer you are calling is not available at this time try your call...

I suspect the message is coming from a Telephone exchange .
A Telephone exchange works by switching your call based on what you dial in as a number it records the whole phone number switches the path of your phone connection to the next path.
(modern exchanges of today record the whole b- number and pass it via c7 signalling on a PCM control channel to the next switches along the route)
(Old step by step exchanges use to switch a call on each number dialed via electro-mechanical rotary switches)
So if the phone of your friend was left off the hook the computerised switch would detect this and time out the phone line to free up the switch from waiting for numbers to be dialed.(This saves computer processor time in the switch)
The switch that your friends phone is connected to would mark your friends phone as unavailable if this was the situation.
When you phoned your friends phone the switch would connect to an RVA (recorded voice announcement -1) and the RVA identifies the switch switch 1-1015-5. if it is a mobile phone and it was switched off a Mobile switching centre would detect this and mark the mobile phone number in a special mobile phone database that is was switched off or out of radio range. When you called the mobile number a RVA would be switched in that says "The number you have called in either switched off or out of radio range " then a pause and then in a fainter sound the switch name would be announced.

Hi. I have not ever remotely connected to the answering machine and do not know the default password. Can you supply that and how to do it.I am away on a business trip and want to check my home...

The default security code is 500. To check your messages, dial your number, when the answer machine answers dial your code, the number of mesages will be annonced and then it will begin playback of messages. If the announcement continues after entering your code, wait for the announcement to end or press # to end the announcement, re-enter your code to listen to your messages. I've included a link where you can download the manual, to download it click on the pdf file then you will need to rate the product or click on security code(rating the product is quicker).
