I had the same problem.
Here is the solution that I received from Motorola tech support:

1.Delete all messages
2. Unplug the power and re-apply power
3. Quickly press and release << (previous message) and >> (next message) buttons together while the "Press review to receive setup instructions" message is playing.
The display will change from a segment scanning clockwise to anti-clockwise
4. Quickly press and release the On/Off button before the "Press review to receive setup instructions" ends. The display will change to a square scanning clockwise.
Note, this goes by quickly. I had to repeat steps 1-4 a couple of times before I got it right.
5. Press and release the delete button. The unit will emit a beep.
6. Press and release the on/off button. The unit will emit another beep and annouce "Press review to receive setup instructions"
Done!

SOURCE: How to remotely retrieve messages

Hello,
Your telephone company should tell you how to retrieve messages. You may want to look in the introductory pages of the phone book.
If it is an answering machine you have, the procedure is different: Every phone has a remote access code (on a sticker at the bottom for older models) or number set by default if phone has a digital screen. You find the default number when you configure the phone.
To hear messages when you are away, you dial your number and wait for the answering machine to activate. When you are instructed to leave a message, enter your remote access code and listen to the instructions. One option will enable you to hear your messages.
Hope it helps.

    This headset doesn't work natively for voice dictation unless you initiate listing via your phone. There are specific headsets that do facilitate voice to text but it is specific headsets with certain phones and may require an additional app.

    I am away and want to retrieve my messages on my home phone


    Call your Number let the machine answer and press the star button on the phone you are calling from. That should then let you press in your pin and access your messages on the machine.

    How to retrieve messages from outside the home.


    Depending on your answering machine, you can call into your house and when it says to leave a message you would enter in a 4 digit pass code to retrieve any messages, etc. But that all depends on your make and model.

    Retrieving messages away from home.


    Hello,

    When you are away, you call your number and waiting for the welcome message (your message). When the machine invites you to leave a message you enter your secret code, the one you entered when you configured the machine. (Usually there is default, but since you don't have a manual there is no point guessing (although 123 may do the trick). Some older phones have a code sticker on the underside of phone.)

    When the code is recognized the machine starts giving instructions press (number) to (do something).

    Hope it helps.

    Static


    If the telephone line itself is static-free, connect a normal telephone to the same jack that the answering machine uses. If all calls are static-free, you've cleared the wiring and the telephone service provider. Next, plug the telephone into the jack on the back of the answering machine. If all calls are clean, but messages are still loaded with static, then we may be talking about a bad answering machine. If you have DSL service, make sure that there is a filter installed between the wall jack and the cord that goes to the answering machine.

    Remote access, panasonic cordless phone and answering machine


    I phoned in from another phone and retrieved my messages. The problem was not with the answering machine but with the phone and calling card I had been using. Don't use a hotel switch board nor calling card, too many intermediate parties for the 2 digit code to work with.

Please be careful as messages deleted by you, you may not beable to retrieve them. This machine doesn't run by cassette tapes.

    How to retrieve messages from the answering machine ..remotely


    Remotely Operating Your Answering Machine

    Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If the answering machine is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and series of beeping sounds.
    During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering machine is off), press [0] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a Security Code or Personal Identification Number (PIN)" on page 54).
    The answering machine 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.
    Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds.
