Switching of voicemail option

I am overseas and although I recorded a voicebox message advising people not to leave a message it is defaulting to old message and people are leaving messages. How do I turn of my voicemail so that when the phone rings voicemail doesn't get activated? Thanks in advance.

In most cases you need to call your service provider and have them remove the voicemail feature from your account. You can have it re added when you return, though you will need to set it up again.

Our school has a Siemens 500 OptiPoint 500 advance phone that has a greeting one. Can't find out in any of the manuals as to how I can go about changing it. Can anyone out there help me?


We always programme the voicemail to 555. If you have something different change what is below, which is our 'one sheet' user guide from www.dschiltern.co.uk

All Types of Phones


1. Your mailbox number will be the same as your extension number.

2. Default password is 1 2 3 4

3. Voicemail group number is 555 (unless programmed differently)


Before callers can leave voicemail messages you must activate your mailbox and record your greeting message. We would suggest something along the lines of


"You are through to the voicemail of . . . . I am sorry I am unable to take your call at the moment but please leave a message after the tone and I shall get back to you "


To Record Your Greeting Message


1. Dial the voicemail group number (usually 555)

2. Enter your password (default is 1234)

3. Keep pressing 3 to scroll to greeting messages

4. Press 8 to toggle between your two greeting messages

5. Press 0 to change the message and follow the instructions.


To leave voicemail just press 'Release' or hang up.


Responding to Voicemail


On a display phone you will see "You have messages" on the top line and "Display messages?" on the bottom line. Press tick twice to go to voicemail and then enter your password.


On Siemens 'Entry' phone or display phones with a 'voicemail' button, just press this button and enter password when asked.


On ordinary analogue phones you will get broken dial tone. Dial the voicemail group number (usually 555) and enter password.


In all cases you will then be able to listen to your messages.


To delete a message press 0. It will ask you to confirm by pressing 0 again.

How do I record a mailbox greeting on Avaya 1408?


Hi Tourmaster,
I have these steps for you on how to do it. Hope it helps.

Mailbox Greeting While the voicemail system will play a generic greeting to caller, prompting them to leave a message, you can record your own greeting.
1. Press the key%20messages.zoom50.png MESSAGES button. Depending on how your system is configured, you may be required to enter your voicemail password and then press the Done soft key. The visual voice menu is displayed.
2.Use the up and down arrow keys to scroll to the option Greeting.
2.Press the Select soft key or OK.
3. Use the soft keys to listen to and record your mailbox greeting.
Listen
Listen to the current greeting or the new greeting just recorded.
Record
Record a new greeting. Note that the greeting must be at least 3 seconds long or the voicemail system will discard it.
More
Switch between the different sets of available soft key functions.
Submit
Submit the new recording as your mailbox greeting.
Delete
Delete your current mailbox greeting. The voicemail will use its default greeting.

People say they can't leave me a message because my voicebox is full. but i can't find a way to deleate it because when i try it says i have no messages. What do i do?


Voicemail is a service from your telephone company and is nothing to do with the handset.
Call your Voicemail number (123, something like that?) and listen to the instructions.
Usually it's something like press 1 to listen to a message, 2 to save it and 3 to delete.
You might have to spend some time going through all your messages and deleting them one by one.
Alternatively, call your customer services and ask them if there is a quicker way to erase ALL your voicemails?

A man answers my phone with "The answering machine is off. Please leave a message" Sometimes it leaves a message and sometimes it doesn't. The menu options I get will not restore it to my...


"The answering machine is off. Please leave a message" (sic) This doesn't make sense.... how can one leave a message if the answering machine is OFF! Unless it goes to a voicemail etc? It's just not possible?

I suggest that you use your manual, and reset up your system again, perform a Factory Reset and then set up what you need to do again, this will clear any erroneous data that maybe causing any problems.

Whats seems to be happening is that the default "Voice" is being activated instead of the recorded message? I think you need to do it again.

After you have done this, record your message and set the answering machine to ON. Then test it from another phone.

NOTE sometimes with answering machines, if they ring more than a certain number of times, without being answered, the AP may switch OFF, ON or indeed do "Other" functions" that may be assigned, so ensure that this "Feature' isn't active or enabled or whatever.

Voicemail not working How to record a message


Depending on what type of voicemail you have installed this should be the way to setup your voicemail. Typically if you dial your voicemail extension and press * when the main greeting starts it will ask you for your mailbox number. Usually your mailbox number is the same as your extension number and you password is defaulted to your extension number plus 997. If your password doesnt work you will have to go into the administrator mailbox which is 999. the password is usually 999997. Go to option 8 on menu then option 4. this will reset your password on your mailbox to default. Also included a website with Toshiba manuals. Hope this helps.

We can't set the voicemail greeting to our own message


this way will take awhile, but this is the only way i know how to record a personal greetong so far:

  • on page 10 of the manual, it tells you to press and hold the 1/E key.

  • This will automatically connect you to your voice mail.

  • after listening to your messages or no messages, the robot lady says, "main menu."

  • after hearing this, pay close attention because she asks if you would like to be taken to "personal options" (press 4)

  • she will then ask if you would like to be taken to "greetings or recorded name" (press 3)

  • she will then ask if you want "to change [your] personal greeting" (press 1)

  • then she asks 3 options of what you can do (ie her telling people your number, then telling them to leave messages; you saying your name, then her telling people to leave messages; or what you asked about: recording your own greeting).

  • To record your "personal greeting," press 3

  • then she gives you directions for this, etc.

hope this helps and that it is the same for your phone... i have a propel A767... it took me a long time to figure this out, so you are not alone :D

Changing the voicemail message would entirely depend on your provider - how they set it up for you and how you can setup your own message. They must have a specific number you can dial to set your voicemail message. This setting is not available on your phone; rather voicemail messages on the voicemail server of your provider. So, the best way out would be contact the provider. Cheers
