Is it possible to take messages off this old phone and save to external drive - sentimental reasons!


Your phone appears to be non-smart old phone
Sony Ericsson T250i User Manual
Your phone does not have SD card.
Your message (SMS or MMS) ought to be on the phone memory.
You can transfer the message to SIM if not already one.
Then read the sim on newer phone.
There can be a difficulty though as most new newer phones cannot take big or regular sized SIM
Alternatively Forward the message from old phone to newer Android phone wirelessly and then store using cloud or dropbox

The answering system automatically announces the number of messages (new or old) if there are any. If there are new messages, the answering system automatically begins to play new messages only. -OR If there are no new messages, the answering system automatically begins to play all old messages. You can also enter the remote commands: Play all messages

Your cellphone provider should have provided you with certain data to set up your phone, depending on the phone type, the send and recieve settings for text messages and calls can vary.
If you did not recieve these your best option would be to call your cellphone provider helpdesk. Newer phones can be set-up by a simple text message from the provider. Or they might have to guide you trough the settings manually.

My handsets both show the icon that says I have a voice message waiting, yet I'm unable to get the message...and the base says there are no messages. Also, when I tried calling my own phone, the...


Try resetting the all the handsets by removing all the batteries for one minute. Then, put them back in and try it. This may reset the units. Also, check the batteries to make sure they are still good. You don't mention what kind of handset you have, but I think many of the different brands have built in voicemail. Are you sure you are not using the service voicemail instead of the handset voicemail?

ITunes won't start. message says itunes library created with a newer version of itunes.


Just upgrade to the newer version of the firmware. If you have other problems they can be solved, but it that is the only message you are getting just install the latest version of itunes. You may have to un authorise the account from that computer if you are over the alloted 5 machine threshold. There is also a one time reset in the itunes menu, but remove it from either it's own installer "in the progrem" or from the control "add/remove" programs first. If you hav issues at that point come back and exlain the message yu got and I will walk you through what to do

Can't switch from voicemail to incoming call without losing messages.


Probably not, but the voice mail extension is still a dialable number. Try 500 or 165 or asking whoever installed it what the extension is.

It will prompt you the same as if you had pressed the MESSAGE button, only there will not be any new messages. You just have to play the OLD messages and you'll hear them.
