You're subscribed to a voicemail system provided by your telephone company that records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

SOURCE: phone not connecting

I find that unplugging the base unit power for about 20 seconds, then replugging it, usually clears this problem.

SOURCE: My Phone will not connect to the base unit...

My handset displays CONNECTING...
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.

This is what was listed in the Vtech Manual.

What I suggest is not just powering it off, but remove battery and wait a couple of minutes. Put battery back in and try it. The other thing I suggest is a new battery or switching it temporarily with a phone that works, to see if that helps before you buy a new one. If the battery is weak it will have trouble reaching the base.

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.

Using the speaker on the base to make/answer calls


Unless your model specifically says it's a speakerphone, you can't do that. The base mic and speaker are only there for recording your outgoing message and listening to your messages. If it is a speakerphone, there should be a button on the base to activate it.

You can find manuals and other information about your model at Vtech's site.

I have a phone from Vtech


Having researched this phone, the message feature you have is voicemail. The machine itself does not have an answering machine in or on it. First make sure that you have voicemail through vonage. And check with them that the voicemail notification that they provide is compatable with the Vtech phone. Next try these steps Tip 1 of 7 Your phone is designed to work with most local and regional telephone service providers? voice mail systems. Voice mail (also known as voice messaging) is a subscription service, available from most service providers for a fee. This feature does not work in conjunction with your home answering device. Contact your local telephone company for more information about their voice messaging system. Tip 2 of 7 Your voicemail feature is compatible with both stutter and FSK signals from your local phone service provider. Contact your service provider to ensure you are receiving one or both of these signals. Tip 3 of 7 Move the handset closer to the base. The operating range may vary with environmental conditions and time of use. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the VOICEMAIL light on the base is flashing in the presence of unheard messages, however your handset does not display MESSAGE WAITING, it is likely your handet is out of range from the base. Tip 4 of 7 Other electronic products (i.e., 802.11 wireless networking products, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers, kitchen appliances and other cordless phones) can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices. Tip 5 of 7 The VOICEMAIL light on the base will flash and MESSAGE WAITING will be displayed on the handset only if there new, unheard messages. Once all new messages are heard and the phone is returned to the idle (OFF) mode, these indicators will be turned off. Tip 6 of 7 If the handset is not responding normally, you may need to reset your telephone system. Complete the following steps to reset the telephone system: Step 1: Disconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 2: Disconnect the handset battery. Step 3: Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 4: Reconnect the handset battery Step 5: Wait about one minute for the handset to re-establish a link with the telephone base and then test the phone again. Tip 7 of 7 If the other phones in your home are having the issue, the problem could be related to the telephone wiring in your home, or with your local telephone service. Please call your service provider for further assistance. If this does not help, repost with further info. Please rate this solution throigh fix-it. Thank you
