Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

3 Answers


I have tried and tried to get this feature working since I bought the phone. It says in the manual just press and hold number 1 to set it up.I tried that and all I get is a message that says my password is invalid. I have tried resetting the phone to factory settings, entering the last 4 digits of my phone number, just about everything I can think of, nothing works. I am out of town and can't find a Cellular office. Can you help me fix this??

Message light blinking but no messages.

That might be the Voice Mail Waiting Indicator which works
with the telephone service provider's 'VoiceMail' feature.
On the D1680 and similar handsets, it can be reset by:

1. press [menu]
2. scroll down to "Global Setup", press [select]
3. scroll down to "VMWI Reset", press [select]
4. scroll down from "No" to "Yes", press [select]
5. handset will chirp, blinking lamp goes out,
6. press [END]

Other models, check your manual. The model number
is on a small sticker under the battery in the handset --
enter this number at to get a free
copy of the User's Manual if needed.

Good luck!

The display on a Nortel set will say "message for you" if there's a message in your mailbox. To access your voicemail you can press your open voicemail key if its programmed or press feature 981.If you wish to retrieve your messages remotely, call your office, when the autoattendant answers the call press ** followed by your extension number, your password then # (ex. **2231234#).

The New Voice Mail message appears and the light blinks and there are no voice mails.

What system? A Panasonic KEY SYSTEM (76xx/77xx/74xx/72xx phones) can have messages from other sources than the VM system.

If it's a display phone, try pressing the MESSAGE button without picking up the handset and read the display. It will tell you where it came from and you can press INTERCOM and ring that extension.
It works the same way if you call an extension and press the MESSAGE button...that leaves a message. Panasonic systems have a MW cancel code that usually begins with 700. In a TA system it's 700#, in the TDA/TAW's it's *700 plus your extension.

If it's a Panasonic cordless, it's probably hearing stutter dial tone from custom calling features.

Nortel Venture Display:Can't delete message ''feature ON Line 1''

Try reversing the polarity of the phone line - some Central Office equipment reverses the line voltage to indicate Message Waiting. Your jack may be miswired (for a lot of phone equipment, polarity doesn't mattter).
