Question about Southwestern Bell Lands Phones

Open Question

My Aunt has a SWBell Answering machine, Freedom Phone, Model #FA972CS. Prior to my Uncle Dying he recorded the answering message. For some reason the machine has gone to a pre-recorded message. Is there any way to get back the message my Uncle had on it? Additionally, the only manual on the product my aunt can find is the one written in spanish. Where can I get her a new operating manual for her answering machine?

Press the >>/Time Set button for about 2 seconds. The system will announce "Monday" press the >>/Time Set again to choose the correct day. Press <</Time Check to change to hours. Select the correct hours by pressing the >>/Time Set, then press the <</Time check to change to minutes. I can't get the mail box 2 to operate either.

Usually there is a maximum length but the recording will end when the talking has stopped, or someone has hung up.

SOURCE: help to record a message on my vtech answering machine.

The VTech 2460 is pretty much the same telephone as the AT&T 2455. Here is a link to the AT&T 2455's User's Guide:

Information about the answering machine operation begins on page 23/36.

You 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.

Perhaps your answering machine needs to be set set to accept messages. Maybe your message machine memory is full of messages?

I need to know how to retrieve my messages when not home. I have the Southwestern Bell Freedom Answering Machine Model No. FA 972. Thank you.


Call your phone, let the outgoing message play when the machine answers, and wait for the beep. After the beep, enter the 3-digit security code you'll find on a sticker on the bottom of the machine. The machine will beep twice to let you know you entered the right code and it's ready for your commands.

Remote commands:

1# Plays messages in mailbox 1
2# Plays messages in mailbox 2
3# Deletes old messages (you need to play them all back first)
7# Starts recording a new outgoing message (press 7# again to stop recording)
9# Turn the system on or off
0# Monitor the room

While you're playing messages (you pressed either 1# or 2#) you have these commands:

3# Erase current message
6# Repeat previous message
7# Skip to next message
8# Repeat current message
## Stop playback

After your messages have played, you have 20 seconds to enter another command before the machine disconnects automatically.

You can download the manual here so you'll have a copy for future reference.

ANSWERING MACHINE WON'T RECORD MESSAGES


The answering machine is most likely referring to the other mail boxes.
if a caller presses 1 or 2 they record in the other mail boxes.On the machine you will see an envelope with a 1 or a 2 next to the envelope.
Press and hold one of these mail boxes and when the messages are played press del to delete each message as it plays. Do this for each mail box.
Have this answering machine and have experienced this problem.

Erasing messages


Hi. I think you have to wait until more calls come in. If you did not save original message(s), then these will then go away FOREVER.
