Goes to voice main on first try on second try rings


According to iPhone faq.org: " How can set the number of rings on my iPhone before voicemail picks up?
You can set the iPhone to wait longer or shorter than the default 20 seconds before it goes to voicemail when receiving an incoming call. This will result in a different number of rings before the voice messaging system picks up the line and plays your outgoing message. To change the amount of time the iPhone will ring follow these steps:
1. Open the phone app and dial *#61# on the Keypad. Press the Call button.
2. Locate this text on the screen: "Setting Interrogation Succeeded, Voice Call Forwarding, When Unanswered, Forwards to +" and record the 11-digit number after the + symbol.
3. Touch the Dismiss button. Now enter this code on the Keypad: *61*+ followed by the 11-digit Forwards to number recorded in step 2, followed by *11 and *ringtime#. Ringtime is the number of seconds you want your iPhone to ring before voicemail picks up. Your finished code should look something like this:
*61*+18555513466*11*30#
In the example above the ring time is set to 30 seconds. Press the Call button.
4. You should receive the message: Setting Activation Succeeded. Press Dismiss and next time you receive a call it will ring for the new amount of time before going to voicemail."
According to Apple Tool Box.com: "having this problem, please try the followings:
  • Make sure that iPhone's Ring/Silent switch is OFF meaning ringer is ON. A bell will flash briefly on the screen when you turn on the ringer.
  • Make sure that the Do Not Disturb setting is not silencing calls (Settings > Do Not Disturb).
  • Make sure that Airplane Mode is OFF (Settings > Airplane Mode).
  • Make sure that your carrier software is up to date (Settings > General > About)."

How do I change the message on my magicjack phone?


From Your Computer
Step 1 Launch the MagicJack software on your computer.
Step 2 Press the "Vmail" button.
Step 3 Press "0" to personalize settings.
Step 4 Enter your password when prompted. The default password for MagicJack is "1234." Enter that password if this is your first time setting up voice mail.
Step 5 Press "0" to get your mailbox options.
Step 6 Press "1" to record a message that plays when you are unavailable, or press "2" to record a message when you're busy. The first message plays when your Internet connection is out, and the second plays when you're on another call.
Step 7 Press the "#" key to end the recording.
Step 8 Listen to the recording by pressing "1" again, and press "2" to accept the message or "3" to re-record your message. Repeat this process until you're happy with your message.

How do you get the red light to stop blinking after picking up messages


You apparently have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

My Vtech phone answering machine no longer records incoming messages on its base. Help


From the sound of it it I think its either: your mailbox is full or the feature has been turn off accidentally.

Vtech's support recommend the following (I've removed things like 'make sure its plugged in' and 'is your answering system is turned on' etc..)

1 Some answering systems have an announce only option, which plays your greeting but won't record messages. Make sure your system is set to record messages.

2 Your answering system's message capacity may be full. You must erase old messages to make room for new ones.

3 If you have voicemail service in addition to your answering system, your caller's message may be going into voicemail before your answering system picks up the call. Program your voicemail to pick up at least 2 rings after your answering system is set to answer the call.

The answer phone will pick up the call, but will not record any message that the caller leaves.


Apparently your answering machine is in announce mode, not record mode.

To change the mode:
Step 1: Determine the make and model of your answering machine.
Step 2: Repost your question, being sure to include the information from Step 1.

During the call:

When Answering Machine is processing an incoming call, you will see a dialog showing the application's progress with the ability to stop it:

* Answer - when this command is chosen during a call, it stops greeting playback or message record and you can continue talking to the caller;
* Hang up - stops greeting playback or message recording and terminates the call; hope this will be helpful...

CHANGE RECORDED MESSAGE


To change the greeting you need to either pick up the phone or press speaker phone then dial *38 then 1 then you will hear a beep/call tone. When you hear that tone record your message/greeting. Once you are finished press the auto dial/store button. If your are satisfied with that message hang up or press speaker phone again to end the call. If you would like to clear the message, then right after you hit auto dial/store you will hear a beep/call tone press 0 to clear or 1 to rerecord.

The pre recorded message on the answering machine has been lost.


I read thru the manual. There is nothing bout recovery of factory messages. If you recorded your own, try deleting it. Or unplug the base from power and try a reset. This is from the manual. At the end, I gave you a link to the manual!

Using a pre-recorded greeting
message
If you erase or do not record your own
greeting message, the unit plays a prerecorded
greeting message for callers
and asks them to leave messages. If the
message recording time (page 39) is set
to “Greeting only”, caller messages
are not recorded and the unit plays a
different pre-recorded greeting message
asking callers to call again.

GE Telephone answering machine will not work


I'm assuming this is a digital recorder and does not use a tape. Any chance the memory is full and you need to erase messages to free up space for new recordings?
