Answering system doesn't work.


Your system is set to "Announce" mode, where it plays an announcement but does not record a message. You want "Answer" mode, where the system allows the caller to leave a message.

Since you didn't give the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch modes. Enter the model into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

How can I call back a private number on my vtech house phone


You can't. When caller-ID shows "Private", it means that the caller does not want you to know what number they are calling from. (Tip: These are good messages to let the answering machine answer. If they want you to call back, they'll have to leave a number.)

The answering machine is not recording messages left by callers. there is an A showing on the screen instead of the number of messages that used to appear on the screen


Without knowing the model of your VTech answering system I can't give you a definite answer, but apparently you have your system set on announce instead of record. Enter the model of your phone into the search box at

Vtech A5874 answering machine not working & letter A shows.


Somehow the answering machine was clicked off, but the announcement was on. Therefore I could not receive messages, but my recording was still on as if I was receiving incoming messages. I just played with the various on/off switches till it worked. For me, just plain luck.
