I would like to put a personal message on the phone for answering machine


Are you trying to set up your voice mail message? If So, just dial your own number to access you v-mail. If it's the first time you have tried this you should receive prompts to guide you through this process. Otherwise; you need to set up a password if you didn't already do this with your carrier.

How do I set up voice mail for my uniden 6.0 without answering system


If you do not have an answering system (answering machine) on the phone, you need to purchase a answering machine or contact your telephone service provider to get Voice Mail service from them. (Most charge $3-5 per month for voice mail.) The provider will tell you what number to call to set up a voice mail message and access messages.

I hope this helps.

(for most Uniden systems with the answering system, you need to turn it on and then access the system from the handset to set the out-going message and length of incoming messages allowed.)

NEED TO SET UP MY VOICE MAIL


Hi,If your account is enabled for voice mail, you can receive voice messages in your Inbox and also in a text message on your mobile phone. Both the message in your Inbox and the text message will include a preview of the voice message in text.
How do I set up voice mail?

1. Go to https://outlook.com to sign in to your mailbox, go to Options > Voice Mail tab, and then click Set Up Now.
2. When you set up your voice mail:
* You'll register your mobile phone number.
* Text messaging is set up. You can choose to be notified in a text message that you have voice mail or have missed a call.
* Call forwarding is set up so that your mobile provider forwards calls you receive to your voice mail. So if you don't answer your phone, your phone is busy, or you're unreachable or unavailable, the caller will be sent to your voice mail. After your personal greeting is played, the caller can leave a voice message for you.
* You can test whether your voice mail has been set up correctly by dialing your mobile phone number from your mobile phone. This verifies that call forwarding is correctly set up with your mobile provider.

How do I change my voice mail after I've set it up?

After you've finished setting up voice mail, you may want to:

* Change the mobile provider's voice mail number so you can use the key your provider has reserved for accessing voice mail to access your voice mail. For details about how to do this, see Changing the Number You Call to Access Your Voice Mail.
* Create a contact on your mobile phone. For details about how to do this, see Create a Contact for Voice Mail.
* Assign a speed dial key to the contact you create for Outlook Web App voice mail. For details about how to do this, see Set Up Speed Dialing for Voice Mail.

What else do I need to know?

* The voice mail service is available only to certain customers in certain regions. If you can use voice mail, you'll see a welcome message in your Inbox telling you how to set up voice mail for your account.

Thanks for using fixya...

My cordless phone model #16725 w/answering machine (old model) has a blinking lite with a message saying "new voice mail" How do I retrieve this message?


If theres a play, play message, or voice mail button on the base/main charger, try that.
Or maybe your phone service has its own voice mail, in which case, try dialing your own phone number.

I don't believe it's a malfunction. See if your current phone company has a voice mail active for your phone. If that's the case then odds are your voice mail is picking up before your answering machine.

We have a Uniden DECT1588 Series system that we have just purchased. We are connected to a Voice Mail Service through Bell. We can receive the messages from the answering service but the light on the hand...


OK. You have a phone set with an answering machine, yet you continue to pay MaBell for Voice-Mail. Is there any compelling reason. That was my feeling when I first read your question but I thought you might not like what I had to say, so I consulted the Uniden FAQ and here what they have to say.

If you Uniden phone has a digital answering machine, and you also have voice mail through your phone company, the message indicator light will not light up when you have a message in your voice mail system. We recommend you discontinue your voice mail and use the Uniden internal digital answering system.

VOICE MAIL AND FAX


The short answer is no. The JX200 will work with an answering machine because it "listens in" when the answering machine picks up a call. It can't "listen in" to voice mail, because the voice mail is handled by your phone service.

Same Number for Fax and Telephone


The fax is designed for use with an answering machine, the greeting for which must be no longer than 15 seconds. If voice mail in this case is referring to answering machine, be certain that the message is as indicated.

If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Voice mail is full do not know how to empty it


Many people confuse voice mail with answering machines. Most of the time if you have voicemail that is provided by your phone company you will hear a stuttered dial tone when you pic up the reciever. If this is what you hear you should call the service provider and they will explain how to retreive your messages and delete the old ones. Are you able to listen to you messages? If you have voice mail, you do not need the answering machine turned on on your phone.
