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.

    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.

    How do I retrieve my voice mail when I'm away from home?


    Go to the base unit.
    scroll to the answering machine option.
    Under there is a setting for your security key.

    you can read what's there, or change it to your own two digit code.

    when you call in, during the message, enter that two digit code and it'll go into messages. There's a "toll saver" mode so that the machine answers after two rings instead of 4, so that if you call and it rings 3 times, you know there's no new messages.

    Talking on phone,someone calls in & leaves message, can't locate


    Thanks for the opportunity to help with your problem. If you also have voice mail through your phone service provider, it's possible that while you are on the phone, the incoming call is "waiting" (meaning you are hearing a beep while you are still talking assuming you have call waiting). If you don't pick up the incoming call, your caller will hear your "voice mail" message and leave a message. However, your answering machine will not indicate that you have a message.

    If my assistance was of any benefit whatsoever, please give me a rating so I can continue to improve my service. Thanks for using FixYa.com.

    I have a cordless phone/answering machine,40-channel 900 MHz, #26998. Recently, I am not aware of message until 3-4 days after caller leaves message. what is causing delay?


    Make sure your phone service provider is compatible with your home phone. If you contact them they can usually provide you with a list of incompatible phones. Next call your home # see how many rings before your answering machine picks up. Check to make sure message is clear and audible. :Leave yourself a message. Note the time it takes for your message to become retrievable. If there is a signicant delay there might be a equipment malfunction and you should contact phone manufacturer.
