Get creative. Your voice mail requires a recording of your name, a message that you will get back to the caller and thank them for calling. So, jot down a 30-second announcement or "script." When you get to the step to record your message, you will be ready to leave a clear succinct recording, not a tongue-tide, goofy, incomprehensible garble. The service is going also ask for a four to 10-digit pass code. You might as well think of that now too. Keep the code simple and easy to remember.

Press and hold the key on your key button pad that represents your cell phone company's voice mail service. Hold the key down until the display says connecting or dialing. Listen for your voice mail service recording and follow the directions.

Wait for the recorded instructions to tell you when to enter your four to 10-digit pass code and enter it.

Listen for the signal for the 10-second recording of your name and record your name. Right after your leave your name the recording will ask for your personal 30-second message. Read your script clearly and timely. Try not to rush the message; 30 seconds is plenty of time.

Determine if you want the pass code on or off for security access to your voice mail. If you do, now is the opportunity to program your cell phone. Push the key on your key button pad that tells your cell phone company "Yes" pass code activated. Otherwise press the key that says "No."

Good luck.

    I need to know HOW TO DO THIS. What buttons do I push? Your answer did not help me at all. Have you read anything about his phone system?


  • eparker304 Jun 01, 2010

    I emailed you that you have not answered my question. I know what to say, I need to know what buttons to push for the main message. I have not heard back from you. If you can't help me, perhaps someone else can.

You are going to need to get into programming.
#206 group 7, line 01, change from "3" to 2 assigned

You need to do that for all lines. That will make it go to the Auto attendant instead of the mailbox.

I'm guessing that you changed the setting in the line coverage ext program (#208) or group call distrib (#206). Make sure that the settings for the lines are set to 1-assigned and not 3-VMS cover in program #206. In #208 there should be no data entered for the line if its not set up as a private line.

Hi there, how do I begin the use of apple's

Automator is a graphical front-end for Apple's own scripting language: AppleScript. Automator is a wonderful tool and can be quickly used to automate any number of things, but it is one of those situations where you need a problem before looking for a tool. In my humble opinion, one of the nicest features of Automater is that once you build your workflow and have it tested and working, you can compile your Automater workflow into a stand-alone application that can run on its' own.
The idea of Automator is that you have small tasks that are chained together to create a workflow. Here is an example:
1. Open up 2. Press "Get New Mail" button 3. If "New Mail", then play a SOUND. 4. Close
This is a pretty ridiculous example, but most people would just leave the running. In this example, each number step would be an Automator action and each action is stacked on top of the others. In this sense, step 1 flows into step 2, which flows into step 3, and ends with step 4.
Automator GUI makes this nice because you literally pick a task from a pre-built library of tasks and you drag them into the workflow editor, re-arranging them drag-n-drop style.
Here is a problem that I solved with Automator. I travel quite a bit. My home DSL internet connection uses a dynamic IP address that changes every few hours, which makes it difficult if you, like me, have a Mac OS X server at home that you want to connect to. So, I need to find a way to be periodically notified of my home IP address. Here is how I did it with Automator:
1. Run a bash shell script that uses wget to browse The script parses the HTML page and outputs my home IP address. 2. Open and create a new message to my personal e-mail, set the subjet line to the output from step 1. 3. Press the send button in 4. Close
Once I felt confortable that this workflow did what I wanted it to, I compiled it as a stand alone Mac application called "". Once it was an app, I added it to my crontab that runs my every hour.
Now, no matter where I am in the world, I have a way to get back to my house network.

Don't have a fix for you, but I will tell you we're going through the same thing. It's really sucking the joy out of the game for us. We just quit playing because it's more frustrating than fun. Tried Nintendo's 800 number, but they were "currentlly experiencing a high call volume" and I was told by an automated voice to call again some other time. Really don't know what the fix would be, seeing as how I feel like we've done everything possible to solve it - just as you said. Please post here if you find a fix!

HTC Touch HD Screen Blank out during call.


This is a setting designed by HTC to stop inadvertently pressing keys with your face when you are on the phone, but yes it is very frustrating at times. I've found that the easiest way to get around this is:

When you make a call, as soon as you've pressed 'dial' press the 'kepad' option in the lower left of the screen, this will stop the screen going blank.

I've not had any luck changing the setting within the phone so this is just what I do to resolve it. To be honest, the only time I really need the screen to be on is when I'm using the keypad to type in numbers for automated services anyway lol.

Hope that helps some of you out?

I know. It came up with a messsage telling me someone else took the call. I think they made some software changes and it isn't working properly. I did leave a solution on your thread about the problem. Let me know if that helps.

You can credit the support session call so you don't have to pay for it. If they ask me about it I'll tell them that I was kicked out and told the call was being handled by someone else. Thats what the window said.

Problems with automated attendant on Axxess Inter-Tel Phone

When people call in they more than likely hit a Call Routing Application eventually. You would have to assign the greeting to the Day and/or Night greeting in order for it to play.

Lucent Merlin Legen MLX-20L Phone

I have the Merlin Legend system. To change to auto attendant is an "administrator" funtion. From the main console, go into the administrator mailbox-enter passwords-go to the #3, which is automated attendant-press 1 for Day menu-press 6 to modify the menu. The menu "prompt" is what you want to change-the recording. If you no longer have an administrator or someone that knows the administrator's mailbox number and passwords, you will probably have to call Avaya and pay them the $650/hr they now want for remote programming, OR calla alocal person with Merlin Legend programming expertise.

Good Luck!!
