Yes, but you need to set up a pin# first. Once your pin# is set up you can check your messages from a remote phone by dialing your home #. When the machine answers you will press the # button. You will then be prompted to enter your pin#. You can then listen to your messages and erase the ones you don't want, etc..

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

for the "Owners Manual" for the "DECT1060-2".

Check the bottom of your base-unit for your model-number.

Use the "search" function on the above web-page to find the web-page for your model.
Then, click the link to download the "Owner Manual", and read the pages on "Remote Access".

How do I unstuck my Phone from line in use?

unplug all the phones in the house, or go out to the NID (network interface device) on the outside and disconnect the "line" from the "network". It should have a standard modular plug. You should be able to plug a regular phone into that jack and see if the line has cleared. Chances are there's a phone in the house that's partially off-hook.

I unplugged all my phones in the house. Yet I got a busy signal when calling the house phone from a cell phone.

Somewhere in the house phone wiring, either wires are shorted, or have the phone company call and check the line outside the house. What I had to do is find where the phone line came into my house and connects to the rest of the house lines, then disconnected each cord one at a time and called on cell phone to see if that cord changed anything.
Call the phone company to see if there is trouble on the line FIRST.

How to check messages over phone outside of house

You didn’t post which model you have, but this should work. If it doesn't, post which model you have and I can give you different instructions for your specific model.

To operate from a remote location, use any touch-tone telephone, and follow these steps:
Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about ten rings and sounds a series of beeps.
During the greeting or the beeps (if answering system is off), press [0] and enter your security code/PIN within two seconds (The default security PIN is 80)
The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory..
You hear “To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero” followed by a beep.

No dial tone and "line in use " message

Try the simple things first. Try a different phone. In my case, I had the phone company check - outside was fine. After two hours my phone worked. I figured out what happened in my case. Both phones were dead (battery). I think one died with the phone off the hook. once the phones were fully charged, the phone worked.
