First you have to set a security code. Program the secutity code at the machine by holding the Stop/Set key and the Next key down at the same time and follow the voice prompts. Once you set the security code, (it will be a 3 digit code) when you call home while away while your greeting is playing key in the 3 digit code (no star, no pound key, just the 3 numbers in the code) and it will take you to the message menu. Test it while you are at home with a mobile phone. Hope this helps.

To retrieve your messages from another phone call your telephone number and when you hear the beep enter your 3-digit security code (if you haven't set it the default code is 1 2 3). The answering machine will beep to confirm the code. You can skip the greeting by entering the security code anytime during the greeting.
To hear your messages locally press and release the PLAY/STOP button. To stop playback, press and release PLAY/STOP again. To restart the message that is playing, press and hold PREVIOUS until the message restarts. To replay the previous message, press and release PREVIOUS. To play the next message, press and release NEXT.

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.
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.
When you first installed your GE Digital Messaging System, you heard the code that was auto set for it. Once you are out and away from home, phone home and during the answering machine promp press # and then the promps will ask you for your 'pass word [code]. Please be careful as messages deleted by you, you may not beable to retrieve them. This machine doesn't run by cassette tapes.
