Question about AT&T 5840 5.8GHz Speakerphone/Answering/Caller ID Answering Machine

2 Answers

Want to turn off answering machine and any messages (please enter your remote access code)

We like the AT&T 5840 5.8GHz, but I can't find the instruction book and there are features we want to turn off---specifically, we don't want to use the answering machine and we don't want the system to try to let people leave messages. Right now, the phone will ring 10 times and then a message will come on:"Please enter your remote access code".How do we get rid of this message? We have Caller ID w/ name and want people to be able to let the phone ring indefinitely w/o any messages coming on. How do we get rid of the message and complete deactivate the answering machine feature? email: radljwa@yahoo.com

Cant get remote access working Binatone Symphony 2210 cordless ph


If you have set up the TAM settings correctly then it seems to be a fault with the machine. I've set up my TAM settings with new pin and I still can't remotely access the messages.

Make sure you are pressing the * key before you enter the default code (as far as I can recall).

Wanted to know if i can check messages by calling in


CLICK HERE for the user manual.

The following is on Page 19....

REMOTE ACCESS
You can access your answerer from any touch-tone phone
by entering your 4-digit security code (the default security
code is 0123). The remote functions do not work with rotary
or push-button pulse-dialing phones. You can cut out the
wallet-size remote card near the back of the User’s Guide
so you know the touch-tone commands when you're
picking up messages from another location.
To access your answerer:
1. Call your telephone number.
2. After you hear the beep that follows the greeting,
enter your 4-digit security code. To bypass the
greeting, you can enter your 4-digit security code at
any time while the greeting is playing.
3. The unit plays the remote menu after the correct
security code has been entered. Menu selections can
be made at any time while the menu is playing.

NOTE: The unit answers on the 10th ring when it is
turned off or the memory is full. To access the
answerer, enter the 4-digit security code after the
beep. If memory is full, play messages and erase
some of them to restore memory. If the answerer is
off, press 2 to turn it on.
NOTE: After the unit plays the remote menu, it will
wait several seconds for a command, then disconnect
