The code is unique to each radio. You will need to show proof of purchase and the radio serial number to a Chrysler dealer to get the unlock code for the radio you purchased.

How do I retreive messages from the answering machine remotely?

this is pertinent to uniden dect 1653 series and may work on yours as most uniden systems use the same format
1--call your phone number and wait until the system answers( if it is turned off , it answers after 15 rings and sounds a series of beeps
2--- during the greeting or beeps , press the # and immediately enter your security code . If you enter it incorrectly 3 times , the system hangs up and returns to standby
3--- the system announces the time and the number of messages in the memory and a help prompt. It beeps to let you know it's waiting for a command
4--when you hear the beeping , enter , enter a 2 digit code command from from the chart for example to play a message press# then 2
if you don't press any keys for 15 seconds the system hangs up and returns to standby
the chart codes are
#1---repeat message
#2-- play message
#3--skip message
#4 --delete message
#5--stop play back
#6 turn system on
#9---turn system off
#0 hear help prompts
to get your security code -- programming a security code

How do you retreive messages from another phone on the att model 1719 answering machine?

Dial your number, when the AT&T 1719 answers and the announcement begins playing(if the unit's answer function is turned off, it will answer after 10 rings) dial your three digit security code(default is 500). If the announcement continues playing after entering the security code, press # to end the announcement or wait for the announcement to end and re-enter the security code. The answer machine will announce the number of messages then begin playback of the messages. I have included a link to the manual, remote operation of the AT&T 1719 answer machine is on page 8.

I have forgetten my security code what should i do


Ok, if you have forgotten your security code, assuming you are talking about your Pin code, you can follow the instructions to retreive your pin.

Firstly, your pin is a personolised number, thus, there is no default pin which will unlock your phone. You need to either have a look on the packaging in which your sim card came in. The in code should be stated clearly on the card.

If you do not know where the packaging is, type in your pin wrong 3 times. You will be requested to enter a puk code now.

At the link below you will be given step by step instructions on how to retreive your puk code.

Let me know if you found this helpfull.

Kind regards

Retreiving Messages

here's what my instruction booklet says:

Changing the Security Code

The default security code for accessing the answering system from another location is 1 2 3. You must use the handset to change the security code. With the phone OFF (not in TALK mode), follow these steps:

1. Press the FLASH/answerer/Call wait button to display ANSWERER REMOTE.
2. Press the *EXIT/TONE button.
3. Enter the new 3-digit security code.
4. Press the *EXIT/TONE button again. The unit announces the new code, pauses, beeps, and then announces the menu options again.

hope that helps

Reset or retreive code

I presume you mean that you have forgotten the unlock code for your V3. If this is so then when it asks for the unlock code press menu ( - ) and it will ask you for your security code, the default is 000000 so if you haven't changed that then you should now be able to access your phone.

If i am 'barking up the wrong tree' then please explain more of the situation and I will try and help again

Also, it should be noted that if you're reading tajen's excellent answer and saying to yourself: "3 digit code...???"

If you've never programmed one your default code is 123.
