SOURCE: 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.

I am trying to hook up my digital answering system with a multi line phone. I need step by step what I need to do. Thanks Ivy Hutchison

The answering machine would plug into the telephone jack on the wall, and the telephone would plug into the jack on the rear of the answering machine.
Now you do mention that the telephones are multi-line units. This could complicate things a bit because the 1739 is a single line answering machine.

If the telephone does not have individual jacks for each line (a jack for line 1 and another jack for line 2) you would need to purchase an adapter (maybe 2 of them...depending on the wall jack) that takes a 2 telephone lines and splits them into 2 individual jacks.

For example:

After the lines have been broken out, you can connect the answering machine to the line that needs it. You would then either plug the lines into their respective jacks on the wall, or use a 2nd splitter to combine the 2 lines back at the wall jack.

How to connect the answering machine to my telephone

You should have two jacks on your answering machine. One should be marked "Line". Plug the telephone cord from your wall into this one. The other jack should be marked "Phone". You will need another telephone cord to plug into this and then connect the other end to the phone.

Remote message retrieval

When you first installed your GE Digital Messaging System, you heard the code that was auto set for it. Once you are out and away from home, phone home and during the answering machine promp press # and then the promps will ask you for your 'pass word [code]. Please be careful as messages deleted by you, you may not beable to retrieve them. This machine doesn't run by cassette tapes.
~ hope the above helps.

Answering Machine not recording!

I had the same problem with my Siemens Gigaset answering machine and I fixed by changing the sound quality of my Vonage line to the highest available (=90Kbps).You should be able to change this in the Features -> Bandwidth Saver webpage on Vonage's website.
