If it is a mobile not receiving sms then you need to go to phone settings menu and to sms settings, alternatively to messages menu, then to sms settings, depending on the phone.
If you are not getting voice messages on a mobile then you need to call your provider and set up your voice mail box.
If it is a landline with message capabilities, then you have to set up your answering machine on phone.

We can be more specific if you give us make and model of your phone and details on reasons why you cannot receive messages.

    Here is a tutorial from Orange on sending / receiving text messages on a different sony model.
    If you are more specific in addressing the problem we can provide more detailed information.

    Thanks

    You may need to re-enter service centre number in following menu:
    Menu/Messaging/Settings/Text messages/Service centre.

    Here is Orange service centre info in UK, if you are in UK get info from there otherwise give us your location.

    SMS service numbers for uk are +447973100973
    or +447973100974
    . depending on area, try both and send an sms to yourself, see if it works.

    If both numbers do not work (and you are in UK). Then call Orange and get right number for your area.
    You can contact them dialing 150 on mobile and getting option to talk to operator, or following the instructions in this page. Once you have right number put it in your phone, this should solve the problem.

    If after finding right number , changing it and restarting the phone, you find that the phone still does not work on messages, then I suggest resetting your k550i to factory settings. Do a backup of all your data inside the phone, because this operation will erase data in phone internal memory (not sim or sd).
    Then go to Menu/Settings/Master reset and do master reset.

    Try the service number first.

    regards

Answering System


Your phone is set in "Announce" mode where it only plays an outgoing message and does not record any incoming messages. You want to switch to "Answer" mode.
Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 system, I can only direct you to select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

When using my 29897GE1-A and receiving an incoming call, I see the number on my display and the caller receives a message (not my reorded message or voice) stating my phone number and then a beep which...


I don't believe it's a malfunction. See if your current phone company has a voice mail active for your phone. If that's the case then odds are your voice mail is picking up before your answering machine.

UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. I think you have stored more than 100 Caller ID messages and hence the caller ID is not showing on Uniden Tru8888. In the following cases the caller ID will not be shown-

If you answer a call before the Caller ID message is received (for example, before the second ring), the Caller ID message will not appear.

When the call is received via a telephone company that does not offer Caller ID service, the caller’s phone number and name does not appear. (This includes some international calls.)

When the call is via a private branch exchange (PBX), the caller's phone number and name may not appear.

You may receive any one of the following messages:

When a private name is received; Private Name
When a private number is received; Private Number
When a unknown name is received; Unknown Name
When a unknown number is received; Unknown Number
When invalid data is received; Incomplete Data

The Caller ID list stores information for incoming calls - even unanswered calls. You can store up to 100 Caller ID messages and phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) for each handset and the base. You can view the Caller ID list through the handset or base during a call or when the phone is in standby mode.

Memory locations for Caller ID messages and Phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) are common, you can store up to all 100 entries for each handset and the base. Caller ID messages are not stored when you have 100 phonebook entries. When you have stored a total of 100 phonebook entries and Caller ID messages, the oldest Caller ID message is overwritten.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Vtech A5874 answering machine not working & letter A shows.


Somehow the answering machine was clicked off, but the announcement was on. Therefore I could not receive messages, but my recording was still on as if I was receiving incoming messages. I just played with the various on/off switches till it worked. For me, just plain luck.
