The 29897 has only one mailbox, so you can't use it to separate messages.

To record an outgoing message, hold down the GREETING button. Record your message at the tone. Release the GREETING button when done.

Checked on the phone system, i can change rings, answer on and of etc, but not how to change the original message, our it it possible that maybe, you cannot change it from its original voice


You can easily change the original voice to your own private, personal message. A detailed description is located in the owner's manual. If you have lost or misplaced yours, go of the Uniden website and download a new one. If you don't see your model listed, send them an e-mail on the "Contact" section of their home page listing your model number and they will gladly send you a new one as a pdf file.

Even though my answering machine indicates it is on, noone can leave a message.The response is that the mailbox has not been set up.Can you help? Thank you.I have had this system for quite a while and have...


A "mailbox not set up" message is coming from your telephone line voice mail system, and not from your telephone answeringmachine. What this means is that the voice mail on the phone line is picking up before the answering machine has a chance, and since the mailbox hasn't been set up it can't take any messages. So there are two things you'll need to do.

First, you'll need to set up your voice mail. You may need to contact your telephone service provider for setup instructions since not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. From your home phone, call your own number so you reach your voice mail. You should get the message that your mailbox hasn't been set up, and will be prompted for an access code to get to the setup menu. The access code is usually the last four digits of your phone number, and you'll be prompted to change it to something else as part of the setup. Through the setup main menu you can record your greeting and set up other options like the ring count before the voice mail answers. Set it for a number larger than the setting on your telephone answering machine. (I have my answering machine set to 4 rings, and voicemail set to 6.)

Step two is to verify the ring setting on your answering machine. Four rings is a common default setting, but it's adjustable on the phone. Most newer phones have menus that you access from the handset to set change settings, while older models have a switch on the base unit.

Once the mailbox is set up and you have your answering machine set to pick up first, everything will work as you want.

This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

You'll need to find out from your phone service provider how to disable or change the settings on your voice mail. The service is part of your phone line and has nothing to do with the phone, so it's not covered in the manual. Normally the phone service provider gives you a set of instructions (or provides them on their website) explaining how to use the features on your line.

You typically enter "star codes" (*72, for instance) to enable a feature or change its settings. Voicemail usually has two modes: "busy", where it will pick up a message if your line is in use, or "no answer", where the voicemail picks up after a set number of rings. You would want to choose "busy" so that your home answering machine will take the call when you aren't on the phone, and voicemail only kicks in if someone else calls while the line is already in use.

Contact your service provider and they should be able to tell you the magic codes for your system.

Hi i have a samsung jey s8000 contract phone however i am unsure how to switch on my voicemail?


hi, if you can't use your voice mail, maybe you can use your answering machine in your jet itself... just configure your answering machine to simply answer all your phone calls, if you are busy.. it will record all callers messages...
it is actually the alternative for your voice mail..
to switch on your voice mail, if you prefer to use the network service. you may try the following steps.. 1. press settings.. 2. on your settings, select applications 3. on your applications, select all calls 4. on your all call settings, select your voice mail and input your voice mail service number.. 5. once finished, select save, and exit your settings menu.. 6. to check if it's working.. use another phone to call your number, but be reminded that if your built in answering machine is on, turn if off..
good luck..

Voice mail recording for my new panasonic digital phone


For voice mail service subscribers
If you subscribe to a flat-rate service
package that includes Caller ID, call
waiting, voice mail, and unlimited
local/regional/long distance calls, please
note the following:
L To use the voice mail service provided
by your service provider/telephone
company rather than the unit's
answering system, turn off the
answering system (page 30).
L To use this unit's answering system
rather than the voice mail service
provided by your service provider/
telephone company, please contact
your service provider/telephone
company to deactivate your voice mail
service.
If your service provider/telephone
company cannot do this:
- Set this unit's "Ring count"
setting so that this unit's answering
system answers calls before the
voice mail service of your service
provider/telephone company does.
It is necessary to check the number
of rings required to activate the
voice mail service provided by your
service provider/telephone
company before changing this
setting.
- Change the number of rings of the
voice mail service so that the
answering system can answer the
call first. To do so, contact your
service provider/telephone
company.
