Push the delete button. It will say "to delete all messages push delete" Push it again. Then it will say "all old messages have been deleted." Sometimes it is a pain because the button isn't great and won't work and you have to start again. You can't delete messages without having to listen to them though even if you just start. If you begin to listen you can push delete and it will delete it and move on.
If I remember correctly you can remotely connect to your answering machine.
When you call the phone and it greets you (assuming you haven't changed the code) press 19 to get it going.
You should then begin to hear your messages.

2 )Plays only new messages
3 ) (During playback) Deletes the current message
33 ) Deletes ALL OLD messages
4 )Repeats current message
5 ) Stop
5 )(While no message being played) Lists Available Commands
6 )Skips to next message
7 ) (While no message being played) Record new greeting

Called GE. Here's what's happening (at least with my phone). I use VONAGE as a carrier. VONAGE's package includes voicemail. I have my VONAGE voicemail account set up to take any call that comes in if the answering machine on my GE phone does not pick up -- for instance if I'm on the phone and I do not "flash" over to the incoming call, that caller will eventually be sent to my VONAGE voicemail where they can leave a message. (Otherwise I would either take the call, or, if not already in use, the GE phone/answering system would simpy take the message.) This GE phone is commucating with my VONAGE account and letting me know that I have a mesage in my VONAGE account voicemail. All I have to do is either go online and delete the messages (after listening to them of course) and refresh the page. Once the messsages are deleted, the carrier lets my phone know the messages are gone and the NEW VOICE MAIL prompt on the handset disappears. I suppose I can do it by listening to the messages by calling in and deleting through the touch pad on the phone as well
I am sorry. Your answering machine has about 14 minutes recording time.
Space is limited. After you delete a message to make room and new
messages are recorded, so old messages are pretty much shredded and un-retrievable. But
even if the message memory has not been totally rewritten, I believe
deleted message are lost for ever. That is what I read on the manual
for a GE or Panasonic phone user manual.
Hello! The answering machine will automatically save messages if you do not delete them; Even in the event of a power failure. It can hold 15 minutes of messages. After 15 minutes machine will "wrap" writing over the oldest message. An old message (listened to) can be deleted by holding erase for more than two seconds. Pressing Mailbox X (1-3) will delete all Old Messages in that box. Once deleted they are gone forever...
