Telephone answering machines are very popular, but anyone can buy these items, are what they really need and how it can serve its purpose.
There are different types and styles available. You should consider the capabilities of the machine to store a number of calls and its length. The total recording time using the answering machine is usually only 15 minutes.
Some machines can be set to ring a number of times that no messages. At this rate, we can save to pay a toll just to check messages if they are away from home. There are many other features that can be appreciated by an answering machine.

Remote access away from home
first you must enter the PIN code:
1) Enter the Answer Setup menu, and then the Security Code submenu
2) Enter a two-digit PIN code (01-99) using the number
You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any touch-tone telephone.
1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds

I hope this helps you!
The previous solution only works for older machines. I have the same Panasonic model and this works every time. On your handset, hit the top center button(menu). Touch the arrow down button 7 times. Should say "Initial settings". Hit top right button on handset (display shows this is now the "select" key). Display now shows "Set Answering". Hit top right button again ( select key). Display now reads "Ring Count". Hit arrow down button 2 times. Display now reads "Remote Code". Hit select key again and enter your desired 2 digit remote code. Hit "Off" key. When you call the answering machine from the road, simply enter those same digits. Piece of cake. Enjoy.
