To play back messages remotely, first you'll need to have set up your two-digit security code (PIN). You can download a copy of the manual here which gives all the details. Once you've done that, here's how to use the system:

1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds. The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
3) Enter a command within 15 seconds. Each command thereafter must be entered within 2 seconds. These are the available commands:

  • 0 then 1 Repeat a Message*
  • 0 then 2 Playing incoming Messages
  • 0 then 3 Skipping a Message
  • 0 then 4 Deleting a Message
  • 0 then 5 Stop Operation
  • 0 then 6 Answering System On
  • 0 then 7 Memo Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 8 Greeting Message Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 9 Answer System Off
  • 1 then 0 Help
* For the Repeat a Message function, press 0 then 1 within about four seconds to repeat the previous message, or press 0 then 1 after about four seconds to repeat the current message.

**For the Memo Record and Greeting Message Record function, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, press 0 then 7, 8 or 5.

4) After the command has finished, 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 above.
5) Hang up when you're done.

How can I check the voicemail, my assistant left and I don't know how to retrieve?


Where did your assistant check the voicemail? In a TVA system, each extension VM password can be reset from mailbox 999. If you don't have that password, you would have to call your dealer/installer or check their notes. If you're trying to get to the General Delivery Mailbox, it's done from the Message Manager's mailbox (998). Again, it needs notes, but I think you can reset that password from MB 999.

How do I retrieve my messages when I'm not at my house.


You'll need to download the manual from Uniden for the specifics for your phone, but the general process is the same for all phones with remote capability. You call your phone while you're away, and when your message starts playing you enter a security code. (That's why you need the manual; not all models use the same default code. You can also change the code, and the manual will explain the steps.) Once you've entered your code, other codes allow you to play messages, delete them, and possibly record a new outgoing message.

By the way, answering machines usually have a "toll-saver" ring setting. When you pick this, your phone rings six or seven times before answering if it hasn't taken any messages since you last checked. This gives you time to hang up so you don't run up toll charges only to learn you have no new messages. Many people have mobile phones with unlimited calling plans now, but others might still need to pay extra for long-distance.

If you are using this inside your home with central air running do you have to vent it to an outside window?


Yes, it must be vented to the outside, even if you're using central AC, too. The reason being is if you don't vent it to the outside, the hot air and humidity that normally goes thru the duct and out the window, will stay in the house and your Central AC will have to run longer and harder to overcome this rise in heat and humidity. In addition, the room that the portable AC is in, will get extremely hot & humid.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have lost all my e-mails from 2002 till 2009, can you help retrieve them?


Deleting messagesPrint
1)Gmail lets you delete either an entire conversation or one message from a conversation. Deleted messages are a lot like the stuff in the trash can in your kitchen: eventually, it's all going in the big dumpster outside, but for a little while, you can still rummage through it if you lost something important. Gmail will empty messages from your Trash automatically after 30 days, or you can permanently delete messages yourself.
2)Here's how you can get rid of an entire conversation:
Open the message (or select the checkbox next to it).
Click the Delete button to move the message to Trash.
3)And here's how you'd preserve most of a near-perfect conversation, but forget about a single message:
Open the conversation and find the message in question.
Click the down arrow next to Reply, at the top right of the message pane.
Click Delete this message.
Oh no! I've made a terrible mistake! I want that message back!
4)It's okay. Just after you delete a message, a yellow bar with an Undo link appears at the top of the page. If you click it, your message will be moved from Trash back to its original location. As long as your change of heart occurs within 30 days of deleting the message, you can also retrieve it from Trash by clicking Trash, selecting the message in question, and clicking Move to Inbox. This won't work if you've already permanently deleted the message, though.
No, really. I don't even like having that message in my Trash. Please take it away.
Once a message is in Trash, Gmail will delete it in 30 days, but you're more than welcome to delete it permanently yourself.
5)Click Trash along the left side of any Gmail page. (If you don't see Trash along the left side of your Gmail page, click more above Contacts on the left side of the page.)
Check the box next to the message you'd like to permanently delete.
Click Delete Forever. This time, it's really gone forever.

How to retrieve messages from outside the home.


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.
