Hello,

First of all put off the phone for some time all the phone to relax it elf then put it on again but if the problem remain then,
what you will have to do to make the phone get back to 0 message is to delete all the message in the phone memory,


The Cox Voicemail Service is a service provided by the Cox Corp. that allows you to store and check voicemail messages on your home landline phone. Of course, because the size of the voicemail inbox is not unlimited, you will eventually need to delete some of your stored messages to make way for new ones. Fortunately, this process is not overly difficult, and you can accomplish it with a simple phone call.

  1. Instructions
    1. 1 Dial your home phone number from your home land-line. This will bring you to the main menu of the Cox voicemail system.
    2. 2 Press the "*" key on your phone, and input your password when prompted by the computerized voice.
    3. 3 Press "1" to begin a playback of all your stored messages.
    4. 4 Press "7" to delete each message in turn. Continue to press "7" at each message until all the messages in your voicemail inbox are deleted


or


Having voice mail on your home phone or cell phone is a way to have your messages recorded if you are at home but unable to answer the phone or you are away from home. Once you have listened to your voice mail messages, if you have some you don't need, delete them instead of having the messages taking up space in your voice mail box.

Instructions for one by one deleting

  1. 1 Dial the access number to your voice mail, followed by the pass code you selected when you set up the voice mail.
  2. 2 Listen to your messages.
  3. 3

    Delete a voice mail message after listening to it by pressing the number that the computerized voice tells you to press. For example, if you have AT&T, you would press the number 7 to delete the voice mail.

Thank you and thanks for using fixya.

If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

We don't know how to retrieve out messages from outside the house.


To play back messages remotely, first you'll need to have set up your two-digit security code (PIN). You can download a copy of the manual here which gives all the details. Once you've done that, here's how to use the system:

1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds. The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
3) Enter a command within 15 seconds. Each command thereafter must be entered within 2 seconds. These are the available commands:
  • 0 then 1 Repeat a Message*
  • 0 then 2 Playing incoming Messages
  • 0 then 3 Skipping a Message
  • 0 then 4 Deleting a Message
  • 0 then 5 Stop Operation
  • 0 then 6 Answering System On
  • 0 then 7 Memo Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 8 Greeting Message Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 9 Answer System Off
  • 1 then 0 Help
* For the Repeat a Message function, press 0 then 1 within about four seconds to repeat the previous message, or press 0 then 1 after about four seconds to repeat the current message.

**For the Memo Record and Greeting Message Record function, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, press 0 then 7, 8 or 5.

4) After the command has finished, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the chart above.
5) Hang up when you're done.

Code to retrieve messages


Here are the instructions you need to follow:

If you want to be able to play your messages from a remote location, you need to enter a two-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) code (01-99).
To select a PIN, perform the following steps:
1) With the phone in standby, press [menu/clock] twice.
The system announces "Security code," and the current PIN code is announced as it is displayed on the base.
Then the system announces the instructions for setting the PIN code.
2) Press [volume/select/ ] or [volume/select/ ] until the desired number appears.
3) Press [set] to select the PIN code. You hear a confirmation tone, then the announcement "Security code" followed by the new PIN code is announced. After a few seconds, the system announces "To set ring time, press menu again."
Note: The PIN code is set to "80" at the factory.

Remote Operation
When you are away from home, you can operate your answering machine with any touch-tone telephone. Use this function to check for recorded messages, to play or delete messages, even record a new greeting message.
1) Call your telephone number.
2) During the greeting message, press [0] and enter your PIN code
3) The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. Then you hear "To play incoming message, press zero two. For help, press one zero."
4) You may continue to listen to the voice prompts, or you may select a command from the following chart:
Command Function Command Function
[0] then [1] Repeat a Message [0] then [6] Answering Machine On
[0] then [2] Play Incoming Messages [0] then [7] Memo Record/Stop*
[0] then [3] Skip a Message [0] then [8] Greeting Message Record/Stop*
[0] then [4] Delete a Message [0] then [9] Answering Machine Off
[0] then [5] Stop Operation [1] then [0] Voice Prompts
* For Memo Record and Greeting Message Record functions, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it
starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, enter the command again.
Note: Once you enter the remote access menu, you must enter a command within 15 seconds, or the
answering machine automatically hangs up and returns to standby.
5) After all of the voice prompts have been played, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the
command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the chart.
6) When you are finished, hang up to exit the system. The answering machine automatically returns to standby.

Turn on the Answering Machine Remotely
If you have forgotten to turn on your answering machine, you can turn it on remotely from any touch-tone telephone.
1) Call your telephone number.
2) Wait ten rings until the system answers. You hear intermittent beeps.
3) Press [0] and then enter your PIN code. The answering machine announces the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming message, press zero two. For help, press one zero."
4) Press [0] then [6] to turn the answering machine On. You hear the outgoing message and a confirmation tone.
5) Hang up the phone; subsequent calls will be answered by the system.

Hi,

The easiest way to gain access into an answering machine is to use it's preset access code. This is the access code set at default by the vendor on the given device. The best thing about this is that most users don't bother to change the access code to their device, if they even know that they have such a feature. Even worse yet, some of the manuals given for the device by it's vendor even tells the user that changing the access code is optional, not necessary. So of course since most people only do what they feel is necessary, these access codes are many times if not usually set at default. So what I'm going to do for you now is list the different popular vendors out there, and include their preset access codes, how to use them, and controls to use after gaining access. Keep in mind that if there is no model number beside the vendor, then that means that the information given works on most of their models. Likewise of course if there is a model identification beside the vendor name (placed in parenthesis) then that of course means that the information provided is model dependant. So let's begin, shall we?

1) AT&T - preset access code is 10 - when the answering machine picks up punch in the access code
7 - play messages
6 - play new messages
# - stop/pause
2 - repeat message
5 - skip message
4* - record announcement (push # to end recording)
41 - play announcement
* - record memo
33 - delete all messages
3 - delete selected
0 - turn system on
88 - turn system off
99 - change remote code

2) BellSouth - preset access code is 555, Mailbox 1: 555, 2: 666, 3: 777, 4: 888 - when the machine picks up hit * and then punch in the access code
0 - help (use this to get the commands available)

3) Freestyle - preset access code is 000 - when the machine picks up push in the D button and then punch in the access code
2 - play all messages
3 - play new messages
4 - skip back during messages
5 - delete during messages
6 - skip forward during messages
8 - play outgoing message
9 - record new outgoing message
0 - set answering machine on/off
1 - hear main menu

4) Vtech (VT650) - preset access code is 0000 - enter access code during announcement
#4 - repeat message
#5 - pause message
#6 - skip to next message
#7 - delete message
#8 - skip backwards
#9 - stop/exit any function
*8 - room monitor

5) Vtech (VT2650/VT2468) - preset access code is 50 - enter access code during announcement
#4 - repeat message
#6 - skips message
#5 - stops
#9 - delete message
#7 - review announcement (after beep press 7 to record an announcement and use #5 to stop)

6) Vtech (HK5886) - preset access code is 48 - enter access code during announcement
#1,2,3 - play new or old messages
#4 - repeat message
#6 - skip message
#5 - stop
#9 - delete message
#7 - review announcement (after beep press 7 to record an announcement and use #5 to stop)

7) Olympia (OL2410) - preset access code is 0000 - enter access code during accouncement
1,2,3 - select and play messages
4 - repeat message
44 - ignore message
6 - play next message
7 - delete current message
8 - record memo
9 - record announce (5 to stop)
0 - toggle answer on/off
* - play help menu

8) Doro - preset access code is 321 - enter access code right after outgoing message has played (or during)
1 - repeat/skip to previous message
2 - play/pause message
3 - skip to next message
4 - play current outgoing message
5 - record new outgoing message
6 - stop
7 - erase current message
8 - switch off answering machine
9 - switch on answering machine/select outgoing message
0 - (after playback) erases all messages
# - end playback
## - end call

9) Virgin Pulse cordless phone - preset access code is 123 - enter access code during outgoing message
1 - review current message
2 - skip to next message
3 - erase the current message
4 - play all or new messages
7 - repeat voice menu
0 - turn on/off TAD

10) Panasonic - preset access code is 11 or 1111 - enter access code during outgoing message
4 - new message playback
5 - all message playback
1 - repeat
2 - skip
9 - stop
7 - record new announcement (use 9 to end recording)

There are also a few random vendors that don't automatically preset an access code on the machine, forcing it's user to set one up him/herself. This is a small step forward as far as security is concerned, but every vendor I saw that did this still used a mere 2-digit access code. To test and see if your target has this type of setup press # when the machine start, and then press 0. If the machine returns to the annoucement then you know this is the kind of machine it is. Of course, in reality, this isn't all that bad of a scheme since you have 100 different combinations available for the access code. However, most users simply set these access codes as 11, 22, 69, etc. So yeah, just try it out. If it disconnects you after so many tries, call back from another payphone (which you should be using in this case).

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Remotely check answering machine


Try 0 (zero) plus your "PIN" code.

For instance, if your display shows your code is 98, then dial 098 to access your messages remotely.

This is how our Uniden DXAI5588-3 wireless digital answering system works anyhow.

Good luck!!
