    How do I access my messages when I am away from home ?
  • victoria hookland Nov 22, 2013 02:16:
    My phone will not dial out or accept calls. I do not have a dial tone, everything is plugged in. I have power to the electrical outlet as the television is on. I have unplugged and replugged in the cable boxes and the correspond​ing light is on indicating proper functionin​g. The message I on the phone is "Not available at this time"​. The second phone is hung up and is exactly functionin​g as Line 1.
