Need to set date and time on the base.


To set the clock, press and hold Clock until you see a C in the message window. The current (or default day) will be announced. Hold either Memo/Repeat or Annc/Skip until the correct day is announced. Then release the button. Press and release Clock.

The unit will announce the current hour setting. Hold either Memo/Repeat or Annc/Skip until the correct hour is announced. Then release the button and then press and release Clock.

The machine will announce the current minute setting. Then hold either Memo/Repeat or Annc/Skip until the correct hour is announced. Then release the button. Press and release Clock.

The current day and time will be announced. In the future if you press and release Clock, the day and time will be announced.

Additional setting information is on the bottom of the unit - for resetting after a power failure.

The manual for the AT&T 1717 is available here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/AT%26T-1717-manual/id/473bh041/t/2/ . You will need to solve a captcha to download the file.

How to set time on the southwestern bell answer machine FA982B


I went to the southwesten bell freedom phone site on the web. Found answering machines.  My old machine was not listed, so I found instructions for a later machine.
The method for setting time was similar.  I tried it and it worked fine.
Your high prices prompted me to be less lazy.
