Sounds like the voicemail is rebooting or was unpluged, make sure the call pilot is pluged in and the lights are on. i had a similar problem once and the power supply to the callpilot went bad. once i replaced it it came back up and worked fine.

Unable to access voicemail feature inactive


This means the system can no longer communicate with the voice mail. You can try to locate the voice mail and power cycle the unit to resolve the issue, If you still get inactive feature after the reboot you will need to replace the vms.

Inactive feature message displayed when we try to access any features on our M7310 phones. This occurred after a power outage.


Dear customer..here is the solution

Sometimes when you put a new (or alternate) voicemail system on a Norstar switch, The feature codes that accessed the old system stay in the KSU memory. If this is the case all of your feature codes will appear inactive even if the voicemail system is operating correctly.
To fix this issue you need to run an External Feature test (XFtest) to identify and remove the leftover codes from your KSU memory. You must have a programming set to access this menu (M7310, M7324, T7316).
Power down the Voicemail unit. Remove connection to voicemail ports from KSU.
1. Press [Feature] **938378 (XFtest). The password will be 266344 (Config).
2. Your display will read Feat code: and you will have options First and Exit.
3. Press First. The first stored feature code will appear, and you will have options Test, Back, and Next.
4. Press Test. Your options will read Remove and OK. Press Remove.
5. Once the feature code is removed, press Next to go to the next code.
6. Do this with all codes until your display reads None Registered
7. Release
Restore connections to the voicemail ports from the KSU. Power the system back up.
The feature codes will be restored to the correct defaults with the completion of the voicemail power-up cycle.

thank u

Admin nortel i can't access the adminstrative programming. i enter feature 983 and it says "inactive feature". how can i fix it to where i can set up a new mailbox?


If you are getting inactive feature when entering feature 983 the phone system and voice mail unit are not communicating. This usually requires a power reset to clear. Or the voice mail unit is in trouble and a vendor needs to be called.

Feature Button


Sounds like the voicemail either is disconnected from the phone system or has lost power to the voicemail.Open the cover to the voicemail and see if there are any lights on in the system.If so then disconnect the power tho the voicemail for about 30 seconds. the voicemail could take up to 10 minutes to fully reboot.

I have M7310 phones with the complete system I can not seem to be able to activate our mail box system, we tried entering f:981 and F:983 however it says feature inactive


If none of the voice mail feature codes work (feature 980-989) then the voice mail system is either not working or isn't recognized by the telephone system.Go to your communications closet and check to see if theres a power light on in the voicemail.If not then you might want to call in your tele system service provider.

Norstar T7316 voicemail is somehow "inactive". Also the feature 983 is showing inactive so I cannot reset system..help


Sounds like the voicemail system is locked up and needs to be powered down and powered back up.
The voicemail, if it is a Call Pilot looks like a small gray box which looks like this in the photo: http://presstelegram.kaango.com/resources/img/itemimages/JUN/491159/LO10559_491159_06302009144332-large.jpg
You can unplug this unit for about 15 seconds, then plug it back in...
It will take about 5 minutes for the Call Pilot to re-boot, then you can dial FEATURE 9 8 3 to ensure that it has come back up.
Good Luck!

I have tried feature 981, 982, 983 etc. and I get the message "Inactive feature". What is the problem.


First make sure u r using Voicemail system which is either Star talk or call pilot.
If u r any one of this then only u can use F 981, 982 , 983 or 985. Its a feature code of voice mail.
If u r using either of this and still gettin inactive feature, then try with rebooting The Satr talk or call pilot i.e. switch off from mains wait for few mins and switch it back on.
After rebooting it will take 15-20 mins to boot up the system and after that u can use these feature.

Thanks.

Had to rebuild mailboxes and now the main inbound number cannot dial internal extensions.


Does feature 983 still show as an inactive feature? You need to reinitialize the feature codes if the system was reset.

Please post what is currently happening.
