Gigaset 8825 answers phone but does not record message


Some Gigaset phones have an option to have the answering machine play an outgoing message only without taking a message. You should check your settings and make sure you don't have yours set up this way. This could also happen if the memory for the answering machine is full so that it cannot record any more messages.

My aswering machine won't allow people to leave a message


There are usually two reasons for this if the machine is on. 1) The memory is full. In that case, delete some messages. 2) The unit is set to Announce Only. This may be the default if you haven't set a personal greeting.

Please add a comment with the model of your machine for additional information on how to change the incoming message options.

(Make sure that your phone/phone line are receiving calls. (Check for dial tone, try calling the number).)

For some older phones and answering systems, the Announce/Number of Rings before picking up was set by a switch on the back or the side of the base. Most newer phones let you set this in the Menu. Try under General Settings > Answering System or an Answering System menu item. (Again without knowing the model, I can't be absolutely sure of the menu and sub-menu lists.)

I hope this helps.

Would like to increase number of rings before answering machine comes on.


Setting the Number of Rings (Excerpt from the Uniden Dect 1580 Phone manual

The ring time setting allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS) setting, the answering system picks up after two rings if you have new messages, and after four rings if there are
none. This way, if you make a long distance call to check your messages, you can hang up after the third ring to avoid long distance billing charges.
  1. Press Menu/Select.
  2. Select the Ans. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time submenu.
  3. Move the cursor to select a ring time (Toll Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
  4. Press Menu/Select. You will hear a confirmation tone.

How to set the answer machine for a 3410 Binatone speak easey com


Here's you manual:

http://www.binatoneonline.com/manual.aspx

Click icon under download....then save..remember where it saves it. Usually when the machine will not record messages there are only a few things that can be wrong....check the Telephone Answering Machine(TAM) section.

You might need to erase all the data and/or change to the correct mode for the phone to function properly. Obviously having the manual will help! :-)

Good luck!

Bellsouth answering machine


TS stands for "Toll Saver"
It will ring 4 times if there are no new messages waiting, it will ring 2 times if there are new messages waiting.

This has two effects:

1) If you are calling home to check your messages, you can wait 2 rings. If there are new messages to check, then it answers immediately. If you make it to 3 rings, you know there are no new messages and you can hang up before you are billed for your call. This was more useful when you would use a pay phone or hotel phone to make a long distance call home. With a pay phone you would get your "quarter" back as long as there were no messages. With cell phones,it isn't as useful.

2) If you not home (which is implied by the fact that there are new messages waiting), it answers faster, so people calling you don't have to wait as long. This could also be viewed as a security risk... it tells your callers whether you are home or not.

Answering system question


I believe the procedure is supposed to be this:

Dial the phone and wait for the outgoing message.

During the message, enter your three digit security code. If you haven't changed it, the factory default code is 123. That should put you in charge of the answering machine functions through the keypad of the phone you are calling in from.

You may need to write up a "cheat sheet" to remember what buttons do what answering machine functions. I think the controls should work the same as the labeled functions on the handsets that came with the 28112EE2 phone system. That is, 1 replays the message, 2 is the play/stop button, 3 skips ahead, etc.
