I will set the time and date, but later when my answering machine states time and date it is never correct. When I check the time and date again, something is always off....the year is wrong, the time is wrong, etc.
I'm almost positive there's nothing wrong with your phone "ssandra". You set the day/time/year etc. on the base (answering machine) separately from the handset . . . you press a series of buttons. I've done it several times, but now after a move I can't remember how you do it, and I can't find the instructions I had. That's actually why I was on this forum (looking for the instructions). Since you posted your question last year, this probably can't help you now. But I thought I'd answer anyway . . .

Re: time and date
Many times their is a setting to read the date and time off your caller id. Do you have caller id? If not, it sounds as if you have a bad unit. You can try to go into the menu and reset it back to factory settings, but that is about as far as you can go short of sending it to repair.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You can restore your computer to the factory state, without any of your data, but this will require (at a minimum) the install disk(s) that came with your system, (prior to OSX 10.7) Systems built for 10.7 and later may not have shipped with disks, but Apple will happily provide you those disks at little to no cost.
Why does the date and time change automatically after I have programmed the date and time on my phone?
If you are subscribed to Caller ID from your phone company, the unit's date and time setting will be automatically adjusted when caller information is received. If you do not wish for this feature to work, press [MENU][#] on the handset, then press  to select "Manual" and press [SAVE]
Hi there, I found my manual that states:
Press MENU/SELECT to display menu when in idle mode.
Press the up or down triangles to reach DATE/TIME. Press MENU/SELECT.
Use the keypad to set the year. Press MENU/SELECT.
Use the keypad to set the date. Press MENU/SELECT,
Use the keypad to set the time. Press the up or down triangles to select a.m. or p.m. Press MENU/SELECT
The screen displays STORED and you'll hear a confirmation beep.
Hi, here are the instructions for setting the time on a 43-3825, which is a very similar model. They should work for your machine too.
1. Press and hold TIME SET/CHECK/>> until you hear it beep twice.
2. Press ANNC/DAY/<< and the machine will say a day. Keep pressing that button until you hear the correct day.
3. Press REC and the machine will say the hour. Keep pressing it until you hear the right hour.
4. Press >= (the play/pause button) until you hear the right minute.
5. Once you've gotten the correct day and time, press TIME SET/CHECK/>> to save it.
While you're doing this, you can't let the machine sit idle for more than 5 seconds at a time, otherwise it will exit the time setup and you'll have to start over again. Good luck!
1. Open One-Touch Speed Dial panel. 2. Press Data Registration. 3. Press Set twice. 4. Press Set again, then use the numeric buttons to type in the correct date and time. 5. Press Set to save the date and time. 6. Press Stop to return to standby mode.
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck. Greg
One thing Radio Shack's answering
machine [model number 43-3829], is NOT, is intuitive. But I guess you
know that already. ;-)
To set the date and time, perform
each of the steps below in quick succession, otherwise the machine will drop
you out of the process and you’ll have to start over.You have about five seconds between each step,
so try and make a mad dash for the finish line (Steps 4.-5.).
Setting Date and Time on Your Answering Machine: (To set Day…) 1.Turn the answering machine on and hold down the TIME
SET/CHECK/>> button until it beeps twice.
2.Press ANNC/DAY/<< repeatedly until the correct
day displays / is indicated.
(To set Hour…) 3.Press REC repeatedly until you reach/hear the correct
(To set Minutes…) 4.Press >|| (PLAY) repeatedly until you hear the
(To Review/Confirm...) 5.Press TIME SET/CHECK/>> once.The machine will play the time and day you
the time- and date-setting mode, press ON/OFF/STOP
helps!If you have additional questions,
please let me know and I’ll do my best to help.
This is due to the base unit losing power and needs the clock resetting.
The handsets retain their clocks under battery power so this is a little misleading.
To reset the base unit clock:
- press the OK key
- press the 'down' arrow twice until "DATE/TIME" is displayed.
- press the OK key again, this will display the year. Enter the correct
year on the handset numeric keypad and then press OK. (Only the last
two digits of the year need to be entered).
- The date is then displayed in MM/YY format, enter the correct date on the handset numeric keypad and then press OK.
- The time is then displayed, enter rhe correct time on the handset numeric keypad and press OK.
- The handset then beeps and displays "SAVED".
- Press the "C" button and replace the handset on the base unit.
For BellSouth model 1184 digital answering system:
To set day and time, hold down "time/code" button for a few seconds. Press "time/code" again to select what you want to change. To adjust the day, use the forward and backward arrow buttons to scroll through the days. When you find the correct day, press "time/code" again, and this will allow you to adjust the time. Again, use the arrow buttons to scroll through the hours, minutes, and am/pm, pressing the "time/code" button to set the correct selections and move onto the next setting option.
Set the correct date and time by pressing "time/set." Then, follow the voice prompts.
Press "time/set" again. Use "change" button to advance day. Press "time/set" again to adjust hour. Use "change" button to advance hour. Press "Time/set" again to adjust minutes. Press "change" button to advance the minutes. Press "time/set" when finished.
