Dude??? for real??? you still have an ansering machine??? well, thats ok i guess. is it digital or analog??? if analog try changing tapes, or maybe erasing old messages. if its digital then i would chunk it and get call notes or get a caller id box an dscreen your calls. better yey just get rid of your home phone service and get all your calls on a cell phone...... much cheaper and more convienient.!!

I have KX-TG1033 - 3 Handset - I have ID caller service - can a message be left when I am on the phone?


When you are on the phone the caller will get a busy signal, unless you have call waiting on the line, then the caller will hear ringback. If you have call waiting you can answer the second call by sending a flash signal to the service provider which puts the first call on hold while you are connected to the second call but your answer machine cannot answer the second call because you have only one line therefore only one speech path. So the answer to your question is no. If you have the voicemail feature from your service provider then the caller could leave a message not on your answer machine but in your service provider mailbox.

Short record time on my answering machine


The only thing I can think of is that there is a switch which determines recording time, there was on mine and then there was the VOX option which only recorded as long as they were speaking and cut them off if they didn't talk quickly. You might check and see if somehow they got turned on.

Callers can't hear me when I answer the phone My Plantronics phone started this about 1 month ago. No one can hear me, I hear them fine. I have even ordered a new battery and installed it and the same...


Went to Plantronics website and did the chat support. Was told to take the battery out and leave it out for 10 seconds so the phone would reset. It then worked for about 10 minutes and did it again midcall. So it kinda works, but not a reliable fix.

User manual of GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine


From the Manual: RECORDING THE GREETING Before using your new answerer, you should record a greeting (the announcement callers hear when your answering system answers a call). If you don't record a greeting, callers hear a default greeting which says, "Record message after tone." When recording the greeting you should be about 6 inches from the unit. Eliminate as much background noise as possible. 1. Prepare your greeting. Sample Greeting: Hi, this is (use your name here). I can?t answer the phone right now, so please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the tone, and I?ll get back to you. Thanks. 2.Hold down the GREETING button. After the tone, you have 30 seconds to record your greeting. 3.Release the GREETING button when you finish. The greeting will playback automatically. NOTE: Your recording time should not be less than 2 seconds. Otherwise the unit will return to the default greeting.
