GE phone model 29581 does not seem to have instructions for resetting voice mail phone just keeps ringing and won't go into voice mail

Voice Mail is not a function or feature of any telephone set,
nor does the GE 29581 phone have an Answering Machine
System that might be confused with Voice Mail.

VoiceMail is an option offered by some (not all) Telephone
Service Providers. Check with your Telephone Service
Provider to learn how to go about using theirs if it's available.
The original GE 29581 phone User's Manual is available at:

Good luck!

You may download a copy of the manual at

The 29490 isn't an answering machine. To set up the voicemail, please consult the documentation for whatever answering machine or voicemail system you have on your phone line.

Call forwarding is a service provided by your telephone company. With many systems, dial * 7 2, wait for a second dial tone, then dial the number to forward to. Answer that other phone to confirm. Dial * 7 3 to cancel. If these instructions don't work then contact your telephone company for their instructions regarding call forwarding.

How do you setup voice mail on vtech model #ia5823 an retrieve messages

The IA5823 is not an answering machine. It will work with most telephone service providers' voice mail systems. You'll need to refer to the instructions from your service provider.

If you still have problems, please repost your question specifying your telephone service provider and if possible the name of the voice mail system.

Even though my answering machine indicates it is on, noone can leave a message.The response is that the mailbox has not been set up.Can you help? Thank you.I have had this system for quite a while and have...

A "mailbox not set up" message is coming from your telephone line voice mail system, and not from your telephone answeringmachine. What this means is that the voice mail on the phone line is picking up before the answering machine has a chance, and since the mailbox hasn't been set up it can't take any messages. So there are two things you'll need to do.

First, you'll need to set up your voice mail. You may need to contact your telephone service provider for setup instructions since not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. From your home phone, call your own number so you reach your voice mail. You should get the message that your mailbox hasn't been set up, and will be prompted for an access code to get to the setup menu. The access code is usually the last four digits of your phone number, and you'll be prompted to change it to something else as part of the setup. Through the setup main menu you can record your greeting and set up other options like the ring count before the voice mail answers. Set it for a number larger than the setting on your telephone answering machine. (I have my answering machine set to 4 rings, and voicemail set to 6.)

Step two is to verify the ring setting on your answering machine. Four rings is a common default setting, but it's adjustable on the phone. Most newer phones have menus that you access from the handset to set change settings, while older models have a switch on the base unit.

Once the mailbox is set up and you have your answering machine set to pick up first, everything will work as you want.

GE 21008GE2 2.4GHz Dual-Handset Cordless Telephone. Lost manual. Need to know how to access my answering machine messages from another phone out side of the house.

You can download the manual at

The 21008GE2 is a phone, not an answering machine. It doesn't store messages that can be accessed from the phone or another phone.

If you want to access messages on an answering machine, you'll have to tell us the make and model of the answering machine.
